I don't have pierced ears, can I convert an earring to a clip on?

The answer is yes! 

Several styles can be converted to a clip on, including hoop earrings. Please email for more information.

What's the difference between gold filled and gold plated?

Both gold filled and gold plated jewelry involve the process of bonding a layer of gold onto a base metal. Gold filled items have a thicker layer of gold and will not change color. Gold plated items will eventually discolor in time. To extend the life of gold plating, avoid wearing jewelry in water and wipe off after each wear. 

How do I care for my jewelry?

Wipe off all jewelry after wear and avoid wearing items in water.

For gold plated items, do not use a polishing cloth. Store in a cloth bag or jewelry box when not in use. 

How Can I get something repaired?

All repairs are welcomed and will be accompanied by a fee, dependent on the level of damage. Please email with proof of purchase, a photo and a short description of the damage. 

How can I remove tarnish?

Brass and silver naturally tarnish over time. If you choose to bring back shine, simply wipe down with a polishing cloth or scrub with a toothbrush, mild soap and water. For polishing cloths, we recommend Sunshine Polishing Cloths.
