9ct Gold is a soft yellow and has a beautiful lustre and rich natural colouring that is maintained without tarnishing in air or water. This means that it will retain all of the beautiful qualities you love about gold and remain the same from the day purchased.
Solid gold is one of the easiest metals to care for as does not need to be cleaned regularly, it is very low maintenance.
Oxidised sterling silver has a lovely matte black surface with a gun metal lustre.
The process of oxidising silver turns the metal's surface black.
This treatment is called a patina which is a surface treatment and does not change the internal characteristics of the metal. As any surface treatment, it will wear off over time and show the metal underneath.
This will happen at varying speeds depending on how regularly the piece is worn and how much it rubs against clothes and skin.
Rings and bangles tend to wear the fastest, pendants a little slower, and earrings the slowest, but they will all wear back eventually.
When you purchase an oxidised piece, expect it to wear back and polish up, so relax and enjoy the way it's surface evolves over time.
This item is best stored in a padded box so that it doesn’t come into contact with any abrasive surfaces.
