All our products are nickel free. We are not responsible for individual skin reactions to various metals, nor are they an indication of quality. Everyone’s skin has a unique chemistry and we can not predict allergies or skin discoloration from a particular metal. We recommend reading this article on how metals can stain your skin and why!
We cannot guarantee how long the electroplating on your jewelry will last, as longevity is largely based on chemicals the jewelry is exposed to, your skin’s PH balance, and how it's worn. We recommend not wearing electroplated jewelry to the gym, beach or pool. You should not shower in electroplated jewelry. Do not wipe or clean hands with anti-bacterial wipes or lotions, while wearing electroplated jewelry. You should not wear electroplated jewelry when washing dishes. Apply perfume or hairspray before putting on electroplated jewelry.
If you are experiencing problems with your electroplated jewelry, please contact us at email@example.com.
