For beaded jewelry, due to the delicacy of the beads and threads it's best to avoid direct contact with soaps, cleansers, and lotions. And though they look lovely with swimsuits, avoiding saltwater and chlorine will help prolong the life of your purchase. Should the need arise to clean it, rinse in cool water and gently press between a towel. For metal jewelry, each piece is treated with a fade and tarnish resistant lacquer for longevity but it's best to avoid avoid soaps, cleansers, lotions, and water when possible.
Our base metal is a zinc alloy combination. It is then plated in gold or sliver and a protective fade / tarnish resistant lacquer is applied for longevity.
The gold or silver plating is nickel free combined with the tarnish free lacquer provide addition protection against allergy. However, if you are sensitive to nickel or have a strong allergy it's best not consider our items nickel free as the base metal can carry traces of nickel.
