Please follow these tips to maintain the quality and prevent early tarnish: Avoid sweat Wipe with soft cloth Do not sleep in your jewels Avoid chemicals (especially hand cream) Avoid bathing, showering or washing your hands with jewels on Wait for hand/face cream to dry before putting on any jewels Apply a layer of polymer coating/clear nail varnish on the inside of your rings How to avoid the Green Finger IMPORTANT: Traces of copper will be found in Gold/Rose Gold plating as this contributes to the coloring of the metal. In some extreme cases of sensitive, highly acidic skin, you may experience some (slight greening). The other main cause of greening is chemicals found in hand creams. This is in fact a common trait in even the finest of jewels, however if you wish to get more information on our plating and how to prevent any greening, we advise you to read our Green Finger Guide to understand why a persons finger might turn green and how to prevent it. If you are allergic or sensitive to metals or have had green tainting before then you are likely to experience the same reaction. Those that are sensitive to metals should not purchase copper/brass based jewels and instead opt for our Stainless Steel jewels or Solid Gold jewels (available for custom order). We take no responsibility or liability for any reactions that may take place; It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure all precautions are taken as we are unable to know each individual's allergies and sensitivities. Alternatively, you contact our support team and we’ll be happy to help.
