When you are not wearing your jewelry, avoid letting it be in contact with air and moisture. Our jewelry box that comes with your jewelry is an ideal place to store it. All materials in our jewelry are genuine sterling silver, gold, bronze and gold plated brass. Our jewelry is resistant to wear but the metals can react to external conditions such as water and moisture as well as chemical products such as chlorine, lotion, medicine and supplements. Jewelry can also react to what your skin exude and it’s individual how quickly that process happens. Many of our chains are gold plated which means it’s genuine 14K or 18K gold on top of sterling silver. The gold will wear down over time, a process affected by usage.
GOLD PLATED BRASS
Gold plated means the jewelry has a gold coating on top of brass. It looks just as if it’s made out of gold but costs less.
Gold plating will wear down over time, a process affected by usage and skin type. To make your gold plated items last for as long as possible we recommend you avoid contact with water, moisture and chemicals (for example chlorine, perfume, lotion and sprays) as that can discolor the jewelry. If you take medication or eat supplements, that can also affect the jewelry depending on what your body exudes. Only use a soft cloth to clean your item, for example the kind of cloth used to clean glasses with. Don't use cleaning cloths for bronze jewelry as that will polish the surface and wear down the gold plating quicker, use a soft cloth if the jewelry needs to be polished.
Your silver jewelry is easily cleaned with silverdip or silver polish. Silver oxidation rate will be affected by your skin type.
You can easily polish your 18K gold jewelry with a soft cloth.
Your beautiful stone will always keep its luster. If the stone starts to look a bit dim and not as lustrous anymore it’s because there’s dirt on the stone. Clean it with a toothbrush, dishwashing liquid and warm water. If it's a gold plated brass ring, avoid using a brush on the gold plated surface.
Our chains hold the highest possible quality and are made in Italy. We have however chosen a thin, delicate chain for our pendants that should be handled with care. The chains can withstand daily wear in terms of constant use but you should be careful so you don’t get stuck as the chain may snap.
On gold plated chains the gold will wear down over time and gradually reveal the sterling silver below. How long this process takes is related to what skin type you are, (what your skin exudes) chemicals and usage.
To make the chain last for as long as possible we recommend to treat it carefully and avoid contact with water and chemicals (for example chlorine, perfume, lotion and sprays). If you take medication or eat supplements, that can also affect the jewelry depending on what your body exudes.
EMMA ISRAELSSON has a six-month warranty on chains. The warranty includes complications from the manufacturing process and does not cover any damage caused by neglect.
Our previous bronze jewelry is made entirely from genuine bronze, this means that it’s 100% bronze all the way through. Bronze is a living material that quickly changes character once you start using it. Initially a well polished bronze detail can become slightly spotted and later receive an even matte tone. This is an amazing process which grants a unique and incredibly beautiful patina. There’s no surface that gets worn down, it’s just a coating – a patina over time. Bronze jewelry becomes more beautiful the older it gets and never loses its gold color.
As the jewelry is bronze all the way through it is easy to restore to its initial shine. You can polish it yourself with a polishing cloth, preferably with a slightly grinding surface.
