Avoid wearing jewelry while swimming, showering, sweating and sleeping. Plated jewelry is good for daily wear but should be cleaned regularly with a soft cloth.
Sterling Silver, A precious metal, often described as demi-fine. 925 Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver x most ideal for lasting jewelry. It will darken over time, so we have finished our sterling silver earrings w. rhodium plating [see Rhodium description below].
14k Gold Vermeil, A precious metal combination w. a thick layer of gold plated over 925 Sterling Silver. Gold Vermeil requires delicate cleaning with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. Do not use sterling silver cloths or polishing compounds on vermeil jewelry.
14k Gold Plated, A thick layer of 14k gold plated over brass. Brass is a hard metal that makes a great base, as it's less likely to bend or break under stress x creates a strong bond for plating.
Rhodium Plated, A thick layer of rhodium plated over brass. Brass is a hard metal that makes a great base, as it's less likely to bend or break under stress x creates a strong bond for plating. Rhodium is a precious metal in the platinum family. It's also a hard metal w. a surface that guards against tarnish x scratches while giving a reflective white appearance.
14k Gold Filled, A thick layer of 14k gold over copper. Gold filled consumes gold in a higher quantity which means the color stays vibrant longer than with gold plating. Delicately cleaning your chain regularly with a soft cloth is recommended.
Have a knotted chain?
With your necklace or bracelet open (unclasped) and laying on a flat surface, use a pointy [but not too sharp] tipped object e.g. an earring post, paperclip, dull end of a needle to get into the center of the knot. Move the pointy object around in circles until you create enough space to be able to separate the knot and untie with your fingers. It can take a few minutes and some patience to get the knot out, so allow yourself time. For your sanity, do not attempt to detangle a chain if you're in a hurry!
