JEWELRY CARE & DETAILS

How do I care for my jewelry?

Each piece is handcrafted and therefore delicate. All jewelry will tarnish over time and exposure to environment and oils. Certain body chemistry, perfumes and lotions can cause discoloration and extra polishing will be required. Store your jewelry individually to avoid tangling or scratches not the metal. Gently rub across the surface with a polish cloth (available as an add-on item) until the shine has been restored. Occasionally remove skin oils by rinsing with warm water and buffing with a soft cloth.

What materials do you use to make your jewelry?

We use high quality metals: 14k gold filled (both chain and pendants) or .925 sterling silver from reputable US sources.

Does your jewelry contain nickel?

All metal and materials are nickel and lead-free. Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Filled do not typically cause any reactions with even the most sensitive of skins.

What is 14k gold filled?

Gold filled is a pressure bonded layer of gold that has 100 times more gold than plated jewelry. It is durable, won’t chip or flake, is tarnish resistant, and is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry that is reasonably priced. It looks great and, with proper care, will last for years. Gold filled is different than gold-plated in several ways

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling silver is a 92.5% pure silver with most likely copper as the remaining metal.Sterling silver is considered a precious metal.
Although sterling silver is stronger than solid silver, it is softer than gold filled metal and can be prone to scratching if not treated with care.

Sterling Silver tarnishes in the presence of common everyday items; however, regular wear of your StyledU silver pieces help to prevent tarnishing. We hope you wear your StyledU pieces everyday, and we recommend that you do, as it will prevent tarnishing. When not in use, store your jewelry in the silver saver bag you received when purchased. To remove heavier tarnish wash your silver jewelry with warm water and mild soap.
