How can I properly care for my jewelry?There are things you can do to keep your jewelry looking its absolute best! We recommend taking your jewelry off before showers and sleeping and to put your jewelry on after you apply lotion, oils and sunscreen. Your jewelry would love it if it was gently cleaned and dried after being exposed to salt water, sweat, oils and lotions. To clean your jewelry, simply place it in a small bowl of warm water and gentle dish soap and let it soak for 30 minutes. After that time, you may gently (very gently!) rub your piece with a soft toothbrush or cloth. Rinse it off and dry your piece thoroughly. You may also use a jeweler's cloth with a jewelry cleaner to gently rub your piece. To store your jewelry, please place it in a zippered plastic bag (they really do work the best). Metals do not like oxygen or humidity and will tarnish over time so keeping it in a plastic bag will help them last even longer.
Can I wear my jewelry in the shower?Totally! You can absolutely wear Flourish + Flame Jewelry in fresh water (not salt water). 14k gold-filled and sterling silver jewelry will not peel or flake off. However, we recommend that one of the ways to make your jewelry looking its absolute best is to take it off for regular showers.
What is gold-filled?This is a great question! Think of it as a solid layer of real gold securely bonded to a base metal like jeweler's brass. It's not just a surface coating – it's heat and pressure combined to ensure it stays put. By law, it needs to have at least 5% pure gold by weight, making it more valuable than gold-plated options. So, it's like enjoying the gold look without breaking the bank!
What if I have allergies to metals, can I still wear gold-filled jewelry?Absolutely! If you have metal allergies, gold-filled jewelry can be a great option for you. The solid layer of gold in gold-filled jewelry is much thicker than what you find in gold-plated pieces. This means that the base metal, which could potentially trigger allergies, is less likely to come into contact with your skin. Since the gold layer is bonded securely, it acts as a barrier, reducing the chances of any allergic reactions. However, it's always a good idea to try a small piece of gold-filled jewelry first to ensure that you don't have any adverse reactions before wearing it regularly.
