We take pride in providing a wide range of price points and styles for our customers giving you different quality options. The following descriptions will give you a better understanding of the piece you are buying according the the metal listed in each product description
Water Resistant /Stainless Steel: This is the highest quality of them all. Styles plated over stainless steel are non tarnishing, hypoallergenic and water proof. You still want to wipe off at the end wearing it with a small jewelry cloth.
Gold Plated Mixed Metals: Don't shower with gold plated jewelry, apply lotions or perfume with it on, swim or workout in it. Some of our gold plated pieces may contain brass or silver as the base metal.
Gold Filled: Thicker coating of gold. Gold filled items will wear longer than gold plated pieces but still need some love as these items are not 24k solid gold. Use a mild jewelry cleaning solution and run under water and pat dry. Gold filled can still get dull and fade if there is heavy wear, constant perfume/hair chemicals, sea salt water and chlorine are constantly getting on it.
Sterling Silver: Some styles are plated over .925 sterling silver making them a higher quality than gold plated over brass items. Styles that contain sterling silver will not turn green or brown. They can handle getting wet - however we don't recommend it showering etc. with them on a daily basis.
