All of our jewelry is made of Stainless Steel (SS) unless otherwise noted. Please read the details under each piece of jewelry to be informed of the materials it consists of.
Stainless Steel is an alloy of steel with chromium and sometimes another element (such as nickel or molybdenum) that is practically immune to rusting and ordinary corrosion. (Merriam-Webster. (n.d.).
Stainless Steel is resistant to stains, discoloration or loss of mass due to rusting. This is because it contains sufficient chromium to form a passive film of oxide on the surface, which isolates the substrate from the reactive environment. Source
All Gold plated Stainless Steel jewelry have real gold plating, either Electroplating or PVD (physical vapor deposition)
Overall, "protect your piece" no matter the material, and use your discretion when purchasing.
To maintain your jewelry for years to come, store them in a safe, dry place. While our jewelry are resistant to environmental factors, be cautious of overindulging in water and chemicals. Lastly, wipe them down with a soft cloth and water from time to time to maintain cleanliness, product buildup, and shine.
