The gold items and finishing of the stones are all gold plated brass. We recommend removing when doing any of the following activities excessively:
Gold plated jewelry does not have the same characteristics as solid gold. It is water resistant, however, overexposure to water may wear off the plating faster or even start oxidizing. For long-lasting plating, we advise removing jewelry when:
-Showering, swimming and exercising.
-Avoid interaction with harsh chemicals found in hot tubs and cleaning products.
-Before going to bed
-Avoid wearing the items on your bare skin, everybody has a different Ph-value which also can influence the plating
-Avoid parfums, oils & sunscreen
Scratches and user marks may occur on the plating and sterling silver pieces. This is normal when wearing it for a longer time on a daily basis. Also it’s completely natural for sterling silver & gold plated items to oxidize or lose their gloss over time.
Please note: Brass may have an effect on your skin. That being said, everyone reacts differently to metals.
