Good to know about plated jewelry
Plating means that there is a thin layer of one material on top of another. The material underneath is called the base material which is often brass or copper. Items on this website are plated with gold and silver on brass, stainless steel and sterling silver.
Plating is a thin layer, so it can wear off with time, exposing the material underneath. It is recommended to take extra care with plated jewelry for this reason. Do no use jewelry cleaners on plated jewelry as it will speed up the wear of the plating, quickly revealing the base metal underneath.
Semi-precious beads are natural stones and may vary in size, shape and color.
Elastic bracelets might stretch over time if you stretch it too much. Roll the beads over your wrist when putting it on, stretching the elastic as little as possible. Shampoo, soaps, perfume, body lotion, etc will help break down and weaken the elastic over time, eventually causing it to snap.
To insure their longevity, every bracelet is pre-streched.
