SEMI PRECIOUS STONES

All semi precious stones in our handmade collection are personally selected from reputable suppliers locally and internationally. 

❖ Gentleness is key when hand polishing your metal and gemstones. A lint-free cloth is the safest way in ensuring the longevity of your gemstones. Please note that stones that break due to mishandling will not be viewed as faulty 

❖ Tissue is liable to leave hairline scratches on the metal and stones which will eventually dull even the hardest gemstones over a period of time.

❖ Some gemstones are particularly sensitive to heat. Radical temperature changes can discolour, crack or break the gemstone.


GOLD PLATED STAINLESS STEEL

Stainless steel is resilient, sustainable and hypoallergenic.

Please note: Gold plated jewellery is not solid gold. 

To gold plate, the metal is dipped into a solution that contains gold or a coloured alloy. The item is then shot with an electric current and the resulting electrochemical reaction deposits a thin layer of gold (minimum 0.5 microns) to the outside of the base metal.

Gold Plating will wear off over time, to ensure longevity please follow the guidelines below:

❖ Steel can be cared for by wiping clean with a dry, soft jewellery cloth after wear to remove any pollutants such as skin and perspiration. Please use the jewellery cloth provided with all handmade orders.

❖ It is natural for the earring post to darken over time, this is due to friction, oils and oxgygen. If you would like this changed, we will happily do this for a resonable price.

❖ Store your stainless steel pieces separately from jewellery made of other metals. It is best if you keep your stainless steel items in Miss Mariadas box or pouch to ensure the metal is not scratched and remains tarnish free.

The pieces made in stainless steel are designed to be worn frequently, however it is advised to remove the earrings prior to swimming, showering, cleaning, sleeping and exercising to lengthen the brilliance of your earrings.

❖ Use non-abrasive cleaning materials. If a cleaning substance is too strong it may remove the gold. Warm soap water and a gentle brush is highly recommended when cleaning delicate pieces.

Be aware of tarnish which may occur as a result of oxidisation, caused by the interaction of silver or gold plated jewellery with certain elements such as oxygen or sulphur. Store your earrings in Miss Mariadas packaging or your own jewellery box.

Never go swimming wearing your jewellery, as chlorine in swimming pools can cause damage to all metals and will erode gold jewellery.

Remove gold-plated pieces before exercising or when sweating profusely to prevent salts from damaging the gold.
