The pieces that are found under the "jewelry" category are classified as costume and are made of base metal which is plated with gold or silver coloring. Irritation, allergic reactions, sensitivity, or turning and/or discoloring may occur over time. These pieces are fun and trendy and a great addition to your wardrobe, however, they react differently to each individual. Some customers paint their ear posts with clear nail polish and some need to buy solid gold- it really just depends on you. As well as how the jewelry is cared for and how it is stored. We recommend that you always keep your metals separated. Mixing them will cause the pieces to turn faster and lose quality. Damaged or broken costume jewelry can not be fixed, exchanged or returned.Sterling Silver
Sterling silver jewelry will naturally tarnish over time. All sterling silver jewelry will age and tarnish naturally. However, with proper care, your precious metal will retain its beauty and shine. It is therefore recommended to clean your jewelry regularly if you want to keep your pieces in pristine condition. There are sterling silver polishing cloths as well as solutions that can help bring your sterling silver pieces back to life.Gold Plated
A gold plated piece of jewelry is a thin layer of gold that varies in thickness due to the fact that it is not regulated. It is done with a quick "flash plating" over a base metal. Gold plating is a good process for very trendy jewelry because of the great price. Gold plated pieces can last for years with proper care. Ideal for creating staple gold necklaces and gold bracelets for daily wear. Over time it could start to fade due to wear as it is just a thin gold plate over base metal.Gold Vermeil
Gold vermeil is similar to gold plate in many ways. What makes the two different is vermeil is a much thicker layer of gold plate and it is always plated over solid sterling silver. This makes vermeil longer lasting, but you should still care for these pieces in the same way. Over time the plate can fade but your base is sterling silver. In some cases you may be able to take a vermeil piece to get re-plated, of course at a fee.Gold Filled
Gold-filled jewelry consists of a thick layer of at least 10k gold on top of base metal, such as silver, brass, etc. Gold-filled metal contains a top layer that weighs at least 1/20th of the total weight and is mechanically bonded together through intense heat and pressure. Gold-filled pieces are great for those who want the beauty of gold without paying the higher price associated with solid gold. As the gold layer is thick, gold-filled pieces won't tarnish, fade or flake and could last 30 years. People with sensitive skin should have no problems wearing this.Solid Gold
Solid gold jewelry means that a piece of jewelry is gold through and through. It's the most expensive and durable among the other types of fine gold jewelry. Solid gold items can be either 10K, 14K, 18K, or 24K. This metal is an investment but will stand the test of time and can be passed down from generation to generation.
