Jewelry Care

Mayblu stands by our products and our quality. We note the materials of each piece on all product pages. Please refer to the product you purchased to confirm the materials used for that specific piece. All of our pieces are nickel and lead free.
Please note that Mayblu is not responsible for natural wear.

STERLING SILVER

925 Sterling Silver is an alloy consisting of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. Our Sterling Silver jewelry is plated with rhodium, an incredibly rare metal, which is utilized to achieve extra shine and longevity.

Care: Sterling Silver is H20 sensitive. Avoid water when wearing your piece, because over time the sterling silver will oxidize. However, the oils in your skin help keep sterling silver from oxidizing faster. Meaning, wear it lots and lots!

GOLD PLATED JEWELRY

Here at Mayblu, we offer two types of gold plated jewelry. One is 14k gold electroplated over Sterling Silver. The other is 18k gold electroplated over brass. We use materials with the thickest plating possible. In order to ensure the beauty of these pieces will last, they need to be properly cared for.

Care: We recommend your jewelry be the last thing you put on when heading out. After removing your jewelry, run a clean dry cloth over each piece to remove the day. Do not use polish or soap on these pieces, as these chemicals can strip the gold. If you have known allergy to brass, plate be aware when purchasing gold plated brass pieces. Plated pieces can be prone to oxidation if not properly taken care of.

SOLID 14K GOLD

Solid gold is a precious metal that will not oxidize or discolor since it is the least reactive metal. You can never go wrong when choosing solid 14k gold because it scratches less and doesn’t bend or wear out easily.  

Care: Even something as strong as 14k Solid Gold needs some care. To maintain its beauty, scrub lightly with a toothbrush and warm water. A damp microfiber towel is also a great option. You can use the towel to slowly and gently rub your piece. 

PLEASE ALSO NOTE...

Gold jewelry may vary slightly in color. This is because, unless it is 24k (meaning 100% gold), it’s a mixture of gold and other metals (called gold alloy). 24k solid gold is quite soft and can easily dent and scratch, making it less durable for everyday use. 14k gold is 14/24 or about 58% gold, and about 42% other metals - this is the most common gold selection due to its durability. 18k gold is another great option which is 75% gold and 25% of other metals. The particular mixture of metals gives gold alloy its own particular hue and tone which can vary slightly.
