We hand-fabricate all pieces using sterling silver 925, 14 karat yellow gold and 14 karat yellow gold plated over sterling silver 925 and should be safe for sensitive ears.
When a black oxidized finish is used, expect them to fade with everyday wearing and the silver will shine trough eventually with exposure to the elements and human touch. This is normal.
Sterling silver can turn a bit black after a while, you can clean this easily with a silver polish or dip which you can buy at the grocery stores (tip: Hagerty silver dip). We love the oxidation process tho, it gives your jewelry so much character :).
In case you bought a gold plated item, please keep in mind gold plating will wear off over time due to contact with skin, cosmetics and other chemicals or even your natural skin PH. For this reason, it is particularly important to take special care of your gold plated jewelry.
Do not swim, bathe or shower in your jewelry and avoid unnecessary exposure to heat and moisture where possible. Overload of perfume may affect your jewelry due to the alcohol.
