Frequently Asked Questions

The majority of the jewelry that you see on our website is created with 14K Gold Filled and Sterling Silver.

If we are using Brass or another metal (usually gold-plate) in a particular piece we will mention it in the description.

All Semi -Precious stones, shark teeth and shells are one of a kind and will arrive with its own uniqueness.

Necklace lengths kept in stock are 16-18 inch. Longer lengths are available upon request.

Gold-filled jewelry contains a thick layer of Gold bonded through a heating process to brass metal. Gold-filled jewelry legally has to contain 5% or 1/20 of gold by weight.

This means that your Gold-filled pieces contain 100 times more gold in it than a Gold-plated piece. These pieces should not turn or tarnish and can last for years. 

Although Gold-filled and sterling silver jewelry is the second most reliable jewelry to solid gold, there are some things that can speed up their aging process.

Here's a list of some things to avoid: 

  • Chemicals in soaps, lotions, perfumes, etc.
  • Sweat, a person's individual bodily composition, and acidic levels. Everyone's body is different, some have higher acidic levels than others, and more potent sweat. This is just something to be aware of. However my customers have had good luck with their 14k gf jewelry.
  • Chlorine in pools and hot tubs.
  • Oxidation, especially on your sterling silver pieces

When you aren’t wearing your pieces, seal them in an airtight space to prevent oxidation (ziplock bags work great). 

  • Clean them with gentle soap and water (dawn works). 
  • Polish your pieces with a Sunshine Polishing Cloth (link it)
