Gold Filled (Hypo-allergic) 
Gold-filled jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold (typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight) mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal. These pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold and can be worn daily and in showers. The outer gold layer will not wear off easily, but will, over a long span of time, eventually wear off and expose the base metal. It can be cleaned using mild soap water or with non-whitening toothpaste and soft cloth, make sure to rinse thoroughly with water and dry it completely before storing it in an individual airtight pouch away from the sunlight.

Sterling Silver (Hypo-allergic) 
Sterling silver contains 92.5 percent of fine silver and 7.5 percent of other metals. It will naturally tarnish but can be cleaned with a soft cloth using mild soap water or with non-whitening toothpaste. Make sure to rinse thoroughly with water and dry it completely before storing it in an individual airtight pouch away from the sunlight. The gold color of the silver plated gold products will eventually wear off over time and expose the base silver. You can polish off all the plated gold and wear the product as plain silver color. Wearing your Sterling Silver jewelry regularly can actually help prevent tarnishing since the oils from your body have a cleaning effect. However, some activities can accelerate tarnishing or even cause corrosion. You should remove your Sterling Silver jewelry before the following:

  • Using household cleaning supplies.
  • Cooking with mustard, onions, eggs, or any other foods that contain sulfer.
  • Sunbathing
  • Swimming
  • Spraying Hairspray
  • Putting on Lotion and Makeup

Plated 14k/ 18k Gold (Hypo-allergic) 
Some of our silver items are plated with 14k or 18k gold. Kindly note that all plated items will eventually wore off over time and will reveal the solid sterling silver base. In this case, you can use silver cleaning solution to clean it and remove all the gold plating.

Rhodium (Hypo-allergic) 
Rhodium is a precious metal of the platinum family, resistant to corrosion which helps slow down the rate of tarnishing when it is plated onto sterling silver products.
