Each piece of SELINA KING jewelry is handmade and will wear well over time if properly cared for. To extend longevity of all jewelry avoid unnecessary exposure with water (salt or fresh), excessive perspiration, and chemicals such as perfume, detergent, lotion, and cleaning agents.
All Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Filled pieces will naturally patina over time from exposure to moisture, chemicals and oils in the skin. Some may enjoy this patina but to prevent tarnishing store in an airtight container and clean with a polishing cloth or jewelry cleaner to restore a bright finish.
All plated pieces will gradually wear over time as well depending upon care and contact with chemicals or moisture. We use the highest quality nickel free plating available for all of our jewelry . Do not clean plated pieces with chemicals. To care for plated pieces gently wipe with a soft cloth to remove any excess skin oil or makeup and store in an airtight container. Exposing plated jewelry to prolonged periods of water will cause the plating to disintegrate, peel off, and or lose its finish. We are happy to replate pieces for the small plating fee so please, feel free to contact us regarding this option.
Because all of our jewelry is handcrafted please note that there may be slight variances between pieces due to the handmade nature of the product. Stones used in our jewelry are hand picked natural gemstones, but they may vary in shape, size and color. Inclusions can sometimes be seen in natural stones. Some gemstones can not withstand the force of cleaning agents, polishing cloths or ultrasonic cleaners. Make sure any cleaners you use are safe for use on particular gemstones.
Please take into consideration your own skin allergies. All plated pieces are nickel free. We stand behind our products 100 % so please contact us with any concerns you have regarding materials used in our jewelry prior to ordering.
