What is 14k Gold Filled? Will it turn my skin green?
14k Gold Filled is a solid coating of 14k gold over jewelers brass. It's 100 times thicker than gold plate and the next best choice to solid 14k gold. If properly cared for, the gold should never wear or peal off, tarnish, or turn your skin a color.
Gold Filled is typically great for those with sensitivities to non-solid gold metal, as well.
Can I wear my jewelry in the shower/get it wet?
Although, it is typically fine if jewelry gets wet, not all gemstones can tolerate water, especially hot water or any chemicals in water (such as chlorine). Therefore, we recommend removing your jewelry before bathing or swimming. Each order comes with an information card describing how best to care and clean your new jewelry. Below is a list of water safe & unsafe crystals.
