MATERIAL COMPOSITION & PRODUCT CARE
The Melania Clara collection consist of a combination of base metals which include sterling silver, brass, copper, alloy and iron. All are nickel and lead free.
Our Silver pieces are all rhodium plated for a long lasting shine and plating.
Our Gold Collection is triple plated in 18K gold.
With proper care of your plated and enamel jewelry, you can extend the length of the plating and it could last for years. Therefore we have highlighted, below, some tips on how to care for your pieces.
Care: we recommend not expose your jewelry to water, cleaning solvents, or other chemicals as it will affect the color and finish of the product. Sweat also affects the finish of your gold-plated items so it would be best to remove them if you are going to work out or exposed to the sun for the entire day.
After showering and if you are using lotion, or any other body product, wait until your product is completely dry before putting on your gold-plated accessories. Some products can have a negative reaction with gold-plating and can cause changes in color or texture.
Always apply perfume before putting on your jewelry. Perfume chemicals can react with the metal and cause a change in the appearance, so you don’t want to spray it directly on your pieces!
Our lifetime guarantee covers manufacturing defects. As the duration of the plating and enamel is directly tied to the particular use and care of each piece, our guarantee does not cover tarnishing.
