MATERIAL COMPOSITION & PRODUCT CARE
All Melania Clara pieces are individually handmade in Atlanta, Georgia.
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 pendants and medals are hand soldered and antiqued. The chains are meticulously beaded by our skilled artisans in India and consist of either glass beads or high quality semi-precious gem stones.
Care: to clean your jewelry, use a damp cloth and gently wipe away debris or dirt. Water is sufficient to clean the glass; solvents may cause damage.
The MC Gold collection is triple plated in 18K gold. The chains are plated over copper and the medals are plated over alloy or brass. The beaded gemstone chains are meticulously hand made in India.
With proper care of your MC Gold 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 gold 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!
Don't sleep, shower or do the dishes in your gold-plated jewelry.
All Milagros pieces are hand-made and hand embroidered in Chiapas, MX. The artisans take an immerse of time, effort and love when making each piece.
Care: All handbags should be dry-cleaned but can be iron whenever it us necessary.
