Jewellery Materials & Care
All of our gold and rose gold jewellery (except our 9K Solid Gold range) is electroplated with 14k gold over a base of 925 sterling silver. When gold plating, the base is dipped in liquid gold to form layers of gold. Electroplating provides a much thicker gold-plating than standard plated pieces, and given the right care, your pieces will last well for everyday wear. To extend the lifetime of the plating and ultimately the longevity of your jewellery, following the below instructions:
- Remove your jewellery before swimming in the ocean and pool. The shower and washing your hands are fine!
- Do not expose your jewellery to perfumes, hairsprays, or creams.
- Do not expose your jewellery to household bleaches and cleaners.
- If your jewellery needs a clean, dilute a small amount of mild dishwashing detergent in warm water. Soak for up to 10 minutes, rinse and then pat dry with a clean, soft cloth. We don’t recommend using silver polishing liquids or chemical cleaners to clean our jewellery as it will remove the gold and rose gold plating.
Chosen for its strength and beauty, sterling silver can give you a lifetime of gleam! We suggest using a soft cloth with your silver pieces to keep them shiny and clean.
Solid gold jewellery is highly valued because it is very durable for every day wear, and doesn’t tarnish or fade with time. Which means you can leave our 9K Solid Gold pieces on 24/7, including swimming in the ocean and pool, exercising, cleaning, and applying perfume, oils and moisturisers. To clean your solid gold pieces, run under warm water & gently rub the chain with a soft, baby tooth brush or cotton tip. Please note the 9K Solid Gold Collection is delicate in nature and requires care to avoid accidentally getting caught and breaking. Please keep this in mind before purchasing, as this type of damage isn’t covered under warranty.
Our jewels are carefully packaged in our signature Mint Kiss boxes, perfect for gifting to a loved one or storing your pieces in while travelling. For daily storage, we recommend avoiding moisture and allowing your pieces access to free flowing air by laying flat in a jewellery dish or hanging on a hook.
None of our jewellery contains nickel, which makes all our pieces hypoallergenic! Say goodbye to green skin and sore ears!
