All of our pieces are made from 100% recycled sterling silver and gold plated with 22 and 18 karat gold. To keep your jewellrey clean and sparkling, keep them away from hairspray, perfume, soap, lotions, householding chemicals, etc. as this will result in discoloration and the gold plating will faint. Keep your gold plated jewellery away from water and remember to take them off when showering and washing hands. When not wearing your jewellery, keep them safe in a jewellery box.
