JEWELLERY CARE - MATERIALS
Q: Will Sterling Silver tarnish (change colour)?A: Yes it will sooner or later. It depends on person's body acid, weather condition, how often you wear it and if you swim or shower with the jewellery. Lotion, perfume also speed up tarnishing. Go to your local supermarket and purchase a silver cleaning cloth or liquid and it will come up like new. Watch the video at the bottom of this page, to make your sterling silver like new again.
Q: Can I wear gold plated jewellery everyday, will it wear off?A: Yes gold plated jewellery will eventually wear off. Even if you're dealing with a thick plating, the interaction of the metal with the skin and perspiration will cause it to fade. You can help maintain it by not wearing every day, while working out, swimming etc. Even body spray/perfumes can speed up the process.
Q: What is the difference between 9ct and 14ct gold?A: Different carats are identified by a percentage of pure gold in a particular alloy/metal.
9ct gold is 38% pure gold14ct gold is 58% pure gold18ct gold is 75% pure gold22ct is 92% pure gold
14ct has good strength and good colour too. It's more expensive than 9ct but less than 18ct. For the extra money you would pay for 14ct against 9ct as it is far outweighed by the benefits of using it. It acts and looks more like 18ct than 9ct and it's hard to tell the difference between it and 18ct when looking at it on face value.The other metals are mixed in with the gold to give the piece hardness so it lasts longer. Pure gold is very soft and will wear quickly and isn't very strong, especially for jewellery pieces that are worn.
