- About the metal -

Gold filled:

Although more expensive, this is by far the best and safest choice of metal! Gold Filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. It does not flake off, rub off or tarnish.

Brass:

An alloy made of copper and zinc, brass is a great, more affordable alternative to gold. However, before you decide to purchase jewelry made of brass please be aware of how YOU personally react to it. Brass can sometimes turn skin green or cause irritation, so it’s important you know how you react. But, if you know that brass is a safe metal for you, it's a great option! The color is very similar to gold and we always use solid brass, which means the color will never wear off! Although, it can tarnish, it can easily be polished up again to bring back that gold shine!

Silver:

We use both solid sterling silver (92.5% pure silver) and solid argentium silver (93.5% pure silver) depending on the needs of the product. Our earring posts, for instance, are all made of argentium, which is not only a higher quality silver, but it is also tarnish resistant and stronger.

- Caring For Your Jewelry -

To keep your jewelry in best condition it is advised to keep it dry (from beauty products, sweat, etc) When you sweat, the acidity in the oils of the skin react with the metal and depending on the levels, this sometimes is what will cause tarnishing or leave a green color.
