Fashion jewelry, unlike silver or gold, is made from a lead-fee alloy.
What is an alloy? It is a combination of different metals that are
generally far less expensive than silver, gold and other precious metals.
The type of alloy used to make most fashion jewelry tends to loose its
luster over time as it can be affected by moisture and other elements in
the atmosphere. To prevent this from occurring and to keep your
jewelry shiny and beautiful for a longer period of time, it is highly
recommended that you keep your fashion jewelry in airtight zip-lock
bags when you are not wearing it. We include one of these bags with
A helpful item to have on hand is a roll of anti-tarnish jewelry wrapping
paper. This can be purchased online or at almost any jewelry supply
store. You can’t go wrong with jewelry wrapping paper, because you
can use it for all of your jewelry and it even keeps watches looking new.
It works great on all precious and semi-precious metals.
Try to avoid getting your fashion jewelry wet. If this happens, you
should promptly dry it thoroughly with a soft cotton cloth or fine
tissue. Be especially careful about salt water. Going to the beach
wearing your favorite fashion jewelry bracelet or necklace is definitely
not a good idea. Salt water will actually corrode the jewelry’s shiny
silver or gold plating.
Are you allergic to certain metals? Some individuals experience skin
irritation when they wear metals to which they are not accustomed. If
you have sensitive skin, be sure to find out if the fashion jewelry you
wish to buy is hypo-allergenic and/or lead-free. This will greatly reduce
the chances of an allergic reaction.
Follow these simple suggestions and you should get many years of use
out of your fashion jewelry.
