A few tips for looking after your special pieces and keeping them looking brand new.
14k Solid Gold
Solid gold is a precious metal that will not oxidize or discolor since it is the least reactive metal. The 14k alloy gives our pieces their beautiful, subtle hue. It is also an active lifestyle’s best friend; it scratches less and doesn’t bend or wear out as easily as 18k.
- Even something as strong as 14k solid gold deserves some loving. To maintain its beauty, scrub lightly with a toothbrush and warm water. You can also add some everyday dishwashing liquid to wash away sweat, grime and hand soap build up.
925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. We plate our silver jewelry in rhodium, which gives it extra shine and durability. Rhodium is one of the costliest precious metals due to its rarity. We also plate our jewellery in 14k gold and 14k rose gold with an added layer of electroplating. Electroplating is an additional layer that gives our pieces an extra barrier of hardness and shine.
- H2O sensitive. Avoid water when wearing your piece, because over time the sterling silver will oxidize.
- We recommend avoiding perfume or other chemicals coming into contact with your silver jewellery as silver and any plating can be damaged.
- The oils in your skin help keep sterling silver from oxidizing faster. So, wear often, and store your piece in your Mila Mela box to keep oxygen at bay.
