All jewellery is made in our London studio using Sterling Silver, Gold fill or Solid Gold offset with semi-precious gemstones.
Gold Filled is made from solid gold and "filled" with other alloys. Electroplating (gold plating) is NOT a part of this process. Gold Filled offers all the same physical characteristics as solid gold such as beauty, durability, and strength, but at a fraction of the cost. With reasonable care it will last significantly longer than gold plated jewellery if contact with water during swims and showers is limited.
Solid Gold should last a lifetime. With that being said perfumes, makeup and hairspray can all alter the appearance of your jewellery.
Sterling Silver tends to oxidise, but this can quickly be fixed with a clean every now and again. Storing Sterling Silver in original packaging or a jewellery case can help to prevent the process of oxidation.
When cleaning any jewellery avoid immersing soft stones such as Turquoise, Opal and Pearl in any jewellery cleaners.
