Our jewelry pieces have been lovingly crafted and many of the components are put together by hand. As a result, there can sometimes be slight differences in the colour, size and pattern of the materials or embellishments – all part of the charm of handcrafted products!
Most of the jewelry on Aurelia Atelier is costume jewelry, unless stated otherwise. Jewelry is made of materials that are less valuable than fine jewelry, and usually feature cubic zirconia stones rather than precious gems. Our metal pieces are usually nickel free, titanium, 92.5 silver sterling, stainless steel, and gold plated unless stated otherwise. The finish on plated jewellery may fade progressively over time from wear and tear. You may be able to prevent this by taking a few precautions in the care of your jewelry.
Always avoid contact with water and chemicals‚ such as hair spray, perfume‚ lotions‚ household cleansers, pool and sea water, and so on
so that it won't lose its colour and shimmer. You can help avoid these things by putting your jewelry on last when getting ready to go out. It is also best to remove rings before washing your hands.
Use a soft, clean cloth to wipe your jewelry pieces after wearing them to remove natural body oils, sweat or residue. If your jewelry comes into contact with water, it is recommended that you dry it with a soft cloth or tissue, as moisture can damage surfaces and cause them to rust or become pitted.
Rhodium, Gold and Silver plated jewelry will also eventually tarnish or discolour if left out in the open air. To prevent this from happening, store your pieces in a cool, dry place, such as a jewelry box or case with the lid closed.
