Gold filled wire is made with a thick layer of 14 karat gold bonded to a base metal. It is a much higher quality than gold plated and lasts as long as solid gold. Unlike gold plated, gold fill will not flake off or change color. Nickel Free :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: STERLING SILVER CARE : Sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (or another metal). These metals are added to make the silver more durable and less soft than pure silver (pure silver is too soft to be used as practical jewelry). CARE: These additional metals make the silver more prone to tarnishing. Tarnishing is a natural process that cannot be prevented, but in nearly all cases it can be brought back to its original shine with cleaning. You will still need to clean the tarnished layer at some point with silver polish or a homemade silver cleaner (many options by googling). I recommend cleaning your jewelry at least once a week. WHY Tarnish on sterling silver is due to contact with sulphur compounds the main cause being traces of hydrogen sulfide gas in the air. This gas is present in smoke from oil rubber bands, latex and in some foods lingering in the air such as eggs, onions, shellfish, kale, broccoli and more. In rare cases the basic body chemistry of some people can react with the alloys and cause tarnishing. Sterling silver can also corrode readily on the skin if enough salt is present (ocean water, excessive sweat) Chlorine and makeup can cause also cause quick blackening of sterling silver. To prevent this, cosmetics/ sunscreen which contain zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, ferric oxide, and calamine should be avoided. Because the nose contains moisture tarnishing may be advanced for nose rings. Since I make all of my jewelry by hand there may be slight differences between your item and the photo used above (different monitor screens can make the color of the item vary between screens). To open hoop the two ends need to be opened sideways (use a twisting motion) instead of pulling the ends directly away from each other, as this can misshape your hoop. I use ECOFRIENDLY packaging for my orders. Domestic orders are sent in 100% RECYCLED bubble envelopes. Domestic orders have a tracking number and are typically received 25 business days (MF) after they are shipped. International orders are sent in simple paper envelopes. They typically take 13 weeks depending on your location. Gift wrapping and tracking available on orders for an extra small fee. I am able to do DOMESTIC size exchanges for a fee of 30% of your purchase price (of the items you want exchanged) plus a shipping fee (3.50 for order to be sent as a parcel with tracking). The 30% fee is necessary because I am not able to reuse jewelry that is sent back, for sanitary reasons. read more
