What is the difference between metals:
Sterling silver: is an alloy of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% other metals. Sterling silver will tarnish over time but can be easily polished with a polishing cloth.
Brass: Brass is a affordable base metal and is a great option for gold tones in a lower price range. Brass will tarnish over time but can be brightened with a polishing cloth or cleaned with a natural acid like lemon juice.
Gold Vermeil: Our Gold vermeil is a thick 14k gold plating over sterling silver. Gold vermeil should not be polished with anything abrasive as it can remove the plating. With care, this thick plating will last years.
Gold Plating: Our gold plating is a thick 14k gold plating over brass. Gold plating should not be polished with anything abrasive as it can remove the plating. With care, this thick plating will last years.
How do I CARE for my jewels?
Keep jewelry out of damp areas to help prevent tarnishing. Remove jewelry when submerged in water or chemicals (chlorine, bleach, even harsh soaps for prolonged periods of time).
How long will my order take?
Each piece is handmade — please allow 1-2 weeks for brass or sterling silver pieces. And 2-3 weeks for gold vermeil or gold plated pieces. Often times, your order will ship before this but we give a little buffer to ensure proper delivery time.
Do you accept returns?
