Care & Sizing
GOLD PLATED CARE:
Gold plating is a method that deposits a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal (usually brass or stainless steel) by a chemical process or electrochemical plating. For our gold plated necklaces, we suggest avoiding contact with water and chemicals from skincare and perfume. To clean and maintain shine, gently polish with a soft jewelry cloth, but not too hard as you may wear down the gold layer. Gold plated jewelry can last up to two years with proper care.
GOLD FILLED CARE:
Gold fill is created by bonding a thick layer of gold to a base metal in a process that makes the gold layers more durable, longer lasting, and comparable to solid gold. Although gold fill is more durable, we still suggest avoiding contact with water and chemicals from skincare and perfume to optimize the longevity of your jewelry. To clean, lightly polish with a soft jewelry cloth to maintain shine.
Due to the nature of our pendants being repurposed designer items, we cannot be sure of the metals with which they were created. Therefore, we cannot advise if they are suitable for those with metal allergies. However, some of our necklaces are enclosed in a gold filled setting which will protect your skin from regular exposure to the button or charm. Those necklaces will include the setting in the product page description under: Metals.
While our pendants are high quality designer charms; they are preloved. This means they may have some minor imperfections but this does not affect their beauty.
.Sustainability is avoiding the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance. This is crucial to us as a small business because we understand the impact that businesses can have on a social, economic, and environmental level. Through using repurposed buttons and charms, we are able to use items that already exist in circulation, reduce our need for production, and bring awareness to giving our beloved pieces, jewelry or not, another life! Our packaging is also high quality FSC® forest friendly packaging, so we suggest you hang onto it and reuse it for traveling or storing your MV pieces in.
