What is your jewelry made of?
Each item is handmade of the highest quality 925 sterling silver and gold vermeil over sterling silver with 3 micron of 18kt gold.
How sustainable is your jewelry?
All of our jewelry are made from 99.9% recycled silver and gold. Every piece is designed and made by myself in my workshop in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.
What is the best care for my jewelry?
Remove your jewelry before sleeping, swimming, bathing and exercising and avoid unnecessary exposure to heat and moisture where possible.
When you haven’t worn your silver pieces for a while, it is possible that the colour has darkened a bit, but don't worry! You can clean this easily with a silver polish cloth or dip.
In case you bought a gold vermeil item, please keep in mind that the gold can wear off over time due contact with skin, cosmetics and other chemicals, seawater, perfume or even your skin PH. These things will eventually damage the gold finish on these pieces. Gold vermeil is a process where a layer of 3 micron gold is placed on the surface of a different material. All of our gold jewelry is gold vermeil on top of a base of sterling silver.
As it is a thin layer of gold, extra care should be taken to maximize its lifespan. So, handle them with great care!
What's the difference between gold plated or gold vermeil?
Gold-plated jewelry refers to jewelry that has gold plating at least 0.5 microns thick. It does not require sterling silver to be used as the base material, and usually uses a less valuable material at its core. Since the plating is so thin, the gold colour will wear very quickly compared to gold vermeil.
We only use the best quality for our jewelry and all of the gold pieces are gold vermeil (3 micron 18kt) on a sterling silver base (instead of industry standard of 1 micron).
Gold vermeil is superior to gold-plated jewelry!
When you're not wearing your jewelry you should keep them in a safe and secure place like your bedroom. Do not store your jewelry in the bathroom or any other humid spots. Jewelry boxes are a great place to keep your jewelry, but you should keep in mind that it does not protect the sterling silver pieces from tarnishing and oxidation.
How can I clean my jewelry?
Use a soft polishing cloth once in a while to give your silver items that turned black their sparkling shine back.
