Materials + Care


We love using high-quality, enduring metals in all of our products. We want every piece we make to be something you treasure for years to come, without the worry that it will deteriorate over time.

Brass

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. You'll find this metal used on most of our jewelry. Cleaned and polished brass has a bright yellow golden appearance. Over time, brass will develop a natural patina, which looks beautiful when worn. If you'd prefer to brighten it up, you can rub a lemon slice over your piece before rinsing it in warm water and drying with a soft cloth. To maintain the bright golden appearance for a longer period of time, store your piece in a plastic resealable storage bag or an airtight container.

Bronze

Bronze is an alloy of copper and tin. Cleaned and polished bronze has a warm golden appearance. Like brass, bronze will develop a beautiful natural patina over time. If you'd prefer to return it to its golden state, you can rub a lemon slice over your piece before rinsing it in warm water and drying with a soft cloth. To maintain the warm golden appearance for a longer period of time, store your piece in a plastic resealable storage bag or an airtight container.

Copper

Copper was probably the first metal to be used by our ancestors, which is one of the reasons why we love this ancient material. Cleaned and polished copper has a rose gold appearance. Over time, copper will develop a natural patina and darken to a warm brown color which can look beautiful. If you'd prefer to return it to its rosy golden state, you can rub a lemon slice over your piece before rinsing it in warm water and drying with a soft cloth. To maintain the rosy golden appearance for a longer period of time, store your piece in a plastic resealable storage bag or an airtight container.

Gold-filled

Our necklaces and some of our bracelets use 14K gold-filled chain. Gold-filled is made from a layer of solid gold on top of another metal, and it wears like solid gold. You can clean your gold-filled jewelry regularly using a little bit of warm water before drying with a soft cloth.

Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and other materials (usually copper) to increase the hardness of the otherwise very soft pure silver. Polished silver has a beautiful bright and shiny appearance. The best way to keep your silver looking this way is to wear it often. As such, we make most of our rings in this material. To rid your silver of tarnish, which can happen over time when left unworn, you can buff it with a jewelry cleaning cloth.

It's always a good idea to remove your jewelry before entering a pool or spa, because chlorinated water can cause color changes in your metal jewelry.
