Many factors can affect the duration of your jewelry pieces. At Wanderelle we encourage all our customers to take care of their jewelry as you would your skin.
In order to preserve the quality of your pieces we want to make sure you understand the material our jewelry is made out of.
MEET OUR METALS
Gold filled is the next level and is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold. Unlike gold plated, gold filled is formed from a mechanical bonding process that melts solid gold onto the base metal. Gold filled jewelry contains 5% solid gold which means the gold coating is much thicker than that of plated or vermeil jewelry.
Gently clean your gold filled piece with a soft toothbrush and a small amount of mild dish soap. Rinse well and place on a towel to air dry. Be sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing in your Wanderelle Pouch. For a quick shine, simply rub a jewelry cloth.
14K or 18K GOLD PLATED
Occasionally, we will carry a collection of Premium Gold Plated pieces which is composed of a light layer of gold over Sterling Silver Base.
Unlike its Gold Filled sister however, gold-plated jewelry needs to be handled with care. Avoid direct contact with perfume, body lotions, hair sprays or other chemicals.Remove your jewelry before going to bed. Remove jewelry when bathing, showering or swimming. Gently, clean your gold plated jewelry with a soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt it has acquired. Gently rubbing the surface of your gold plated jewelry using a soft jewelry cloth also helps restore shine. Store in your Wanderelle Pouch.
