Care and Materials


Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver: 92.5% silver


Sterling Silver can develop a black/brown patina. It should be worn regularly or stored in an airtight container. Should patina develop it is easily polished with a soft cloth or jewellery cleaner. Avoid contact with chemicals.


Hypoallergenic for most people.


Gold Filled:

Gold Filled: real gold bonded onto a base metal (usually brass) with good care it does not chip or tarnish. Harder wearing than most gold plate.


Avoid contact with liquids, perfume, and chemicals. Wipe clean with a soft, non-abrasive cloth. Keep dry and store in an airtight container when not worn. Wipe clean regularly with a soft cloth, this will also bring back shine.


Hypoallergenic for most people.


Raw Brass

Raw brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. When polished it resembles gold and tarnishes to an antique bronze colour.


Brass can develop a deeper colour/patina fairly quickly when frequently exposed to air, warm weather, or stored in damp conditions. This can be removed with jewellery cleaner and a soft cloth.
