Miranda Frye brass jewelry is plated in either 14k yellow gold, 14k rose gold, or silver and rhodium. To ensure the life of brass jewelry, do not expose it to water. Please remove your jewelry while exercising, bathing, and swimming, and avoid contact with perfumes, lotions or hair products.
We recommends cleaning your plated jewelry using a damp, soft cloth. Make sure to fully dry the piece before wearing it. Do not use harsh chemicals, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, as this will affect the finish. We suggest storing your brass jewelry in the box or pouch that we provide. Please remember that as this is not fine jewelry, we highly recommends that you follow these instructions carefully.
Miranda Frye is not responsible for the maintenance of your jewelry and does not polish purchased jewelry.
Gold Filled & Sterling Care
Gold filled and vermeil products are a great, quality alternative to the much more expensive solid karat gold. It's high in quality & with proper care and storage, you will have affordable jewelry that lasts. It’s the economical way to enjoy the luster of gold without the big price tag.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal such as brass. It’s not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant if taken care properly. Most people who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Solid gold is of course an exquisite piece of jewelry, but gold filled is an amazing (& affordable!), quality alternative. .
Tips to make it last
•Humidity is the enemy; keep it dry! Store your goodies individually in the air-tight plastic baggie included with your chain necklace.
•Avoid rough wear to slow down the natural process of “wear and tear”.
•Perfume, hairspray & other types of lotion may contain harsh chemicals that can tarnish your jewelry overtime.
•For extra care, gently wipe each piece of jewelry clean of any products and skin oils with a soft jewelry polishing cloth.
•Never use abrasive products to clean your jewelry. They can damage gold plating irreparably.
