WHAT METALS DO YOU USE AND HOW DO I CLEAN THEM?

Our jewelry is made from 14k gold fill, sterling silver, brass, all of which is 100% nickel free and hypoallergenic. All ear wires are either 14k gold fill or sterling silver. Some earring posts are gold plated or silver plated (we note these on the listing)You'll find the specific metals used for each piece on their individual pages and more information about each metal below.

  • GOLD FILL | Gold fill is made by heat and pressure-bonding a layer of 14k gold to a brass core. Gold is naturally very soft, so bonding it to brass adds strength to our designs. The great thing about this process is you will not have to worry about flaking, tarnishing, allergies, or turning your skin green!

Gold fill is not the same as gold plate or gold-plated. Plated metal is made by dipping any kind of metal in a very thin coating of gold. Normal wear and tear won't impact your gold fill. Gold fill is naturally tarnish resistant; however it can get dirty or smudged. To keep your gold shiny and glowing, wipe it with a soft cloth or a jewelry cloth. Gold doesn't normally tarnish unless it's around very harsh chemicals.  The biggest threats to gold fill are abrasives. So avoid scratching the surface with harsh polishers, baking soda, or sandpaper.

  • BRASS |  Brass is a very similar color to 14 k gold but is a harder material and more resistant to scratches. We coat all of our brass jewelry to slow the rate of tarnish, but natural brass does have a tendency to patina and darken with time. We love this about brass, but if you'd like to keep it in its shiny state, you can easily wipe it clean with a polishing cloth. Pendants worn over your clothes won't oxidize very quickly since they don't have direct skin contact.
  • STERLING SILVER | Natural silver does darken with time which can be very beautiful. If  you prefer your silver bright and shiny you can use a polishing cloth to gently buff it clean. On most of our pieces we do add a patina to give the jewelry a darker finish. IF you do plan on cleaning your jewelry please be aware some of this patina may come off. If you would like to clean your jewelry use a little toothpaste and a soft cloth with also work. Leaving your silver in a humid environment or at the bottom of a jewelry box is one of the quickest ways to make your silver tarnish. Lucky for us, wearing silver jewelry actually slows down the rate of tarnish and oxidation and keeps the metal bright and shiny!

 

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY JEWELRY?

Jewelry is not indestructible. In order to keep it in the best condition avoid sleeping in your jewelry, swimming in it, and avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals. It is best to hang necklaces to avoid tangle. Storing jewelry in a humid space will accelerate tarnish, but it is easily cleaned with a polishing cloth. Do not use polishing cloths or any chemicals on the surface of stones. Instead, wipe them with a soft cloth.

I ORDERED THE WRONG RING SIZE. CAN I EXCHANGE IT FOR A DIFFERENT SIZE?

We ask that you are fully aware of your size before purchasing any rings we cannot resize custom rings but some rings are able to be resized. Email us at foreverpurelife@gmail.com to let us know. We will give you an address to mail the ring back and we will ask for $5 to cover the cost of shipping. It generally takes about a week for us to re-make your ring in the proper size. If you need help determining your ring size, please use the sizing chart. 

HOW DO YOU PACKAGE JEWELRY?

Jewelry is shipped in kraft jewelry boxes, tied with a bow & packaged with a small muslin bag. We do not ship an invoice or a receipt on domestic orders to save paper. The jewelry is sent in a  bubble mailer small enough to fit in most mailboxes and through most mail slots. If it is a gift, leave a note when you checkout and we can include a message from you.

DO YOU MAKE CUSTOM DESIGNS?

Yes! If you’d like a necklace or bracelet shortened or lengthened, just send an email to foreverpurelife@gmail.com . Generally there is no extra charge for this modification.
