Can you tell me more about the metals you use? 

COPPER: All of the copper that we use is pure, solid copper. Copper will naturally tarnish over time. Sometimes copper has the tendency to turn skin green due to trapped moisture underneath the jewellery and body chemistry. The green reaction is only topical and poses no health risks. 

GOLD BRASS: The brass we use has a lovely warm golden hue similar to 22kt yellow gold. Brass will naturally tarnish over time. Sometimes brass has the tendency to turn skin green due to trapped moisture underneath the jewellery and body chemistry. The green reaction is only topical and poses no health risks.

NICKEL SILVER: Nickel silver looks identical to sterling silver, however nickel is a much cheaper material. Using nickel silver allows us to bring big, bold silver designs at an affordable price. Unlink sterling silver, nickel silver won't tarnish.

STERLING SILVER: All of the sterling silver we use 100% recycled. This means that landscapes aren't destroyed, that the people living on mineral-rich lands aren't displaced and that eco systems aren't polluted by the dirty process of mineral mining. 

GOLD FILLED: We use 14kt rose gold fill and 14kt yellow gold fill in select designs. Gold fill is a great way to get a genuine gold look without the solid gold price. Gold fill metal is a base metal (usually brass) that has a thick layer of real 14kt gold mechanically bonded to the surface. So this means that everything you see and touch on a gold filled piece of jewellery is actually real gold. Jewellery made with gold fill is more durable than gold plated jewellery. Gold fill jewellery allows you to enjoy the benefits of wearing real gold (tarnish resistant & non-allergenic) at an affordable price. Gold fill jewellery is more resistant to tarnish than gold plated pieces when cared for properly.  

SOLID GOLD: We work in 14kt yellow and white gold on a custom order basis. Most of our designs can be made in solid gold. Like our sterling silver, our solid gold is also 100% recycled and eco friendly.

How do I care for my jewellery?

It is best to avoid wearing your jewellery in the shower, ocean or pool as moisture can speed up the tarnishing process and damage the polished finish. In most cases, fingerprints and body oils can be removed by rubbing with a polishing cloth. To remove soap and moisturiser build up, submerge the piece in warm, soapy water. Use a soft toothbrush to loosen build-up. Rinse and pat dry immediately.

For heavy tarnish build up on copper or brass pieces only, you can submerge the piece in white vinegar for a minute. Rinse, pat dry and buff with a polishing cloth to bring back shine. 

It is always a good idea to store your jewellery in an airtight, moisture free environment when you aren't wearing it in order to minimise tarnish. Try to avoid storing your jewellery in the bathroom as the humidity will accelerate tarnish!
