Buy less, choose well, MAKE IT LAST.
TARNISHING - All precious metals will tarnish with wear. Avoid getting your jewelry wet and remove jewelry before showering, swimming, exercising, etc. It is the customers responsibility to clean their own jewelry. Jewelry should be handled and stored with care! Excessive bending will cause the pieces to break. In order to achieve a long lifespan of your jewels, keep adjustments to a minimum and store/travel with it in your K.Michael pouch or ziploc bag.
GOLD-FILLED - Consider 14k gold filled jewelry care simpler because it is a durable metal and considered a lifetime piece. This is NOT gold plated or gold dipped vermeil jewelry which can chip off over time with wear. Gold filled metal is essentially a 14k gold tube filled with an inner core metal such as brass and has been mechanically bonded with high very hot heat. It will never chip or flake off such as gold plated metals. There is over 100 times more gold in 14k gold filled jewelry in comparison to a mere thin coat of paint in gold plated or vermeil jewelry.
STERLING SILVER- Sterling silver jewelry is made with genuine silver.
ALL STONES- Stones are natural entities; therefore no two pieces are exactly the same.
HAND STAMPED JEWELRY- Hand stamped jewelry is handmade. Every piece is carefully crafted and no one piece is exactly the same. That is what gives it such beauty and character.
NOTE: The prices of gold, gold-filled, and silver jewelry are based on the current market value of precious metals.
