What does lead and nickel compliant mean?

Nickel is one of the most common sources of skin allergies. Many people are allergic to fake jewelry because they are very sensitive to nickel or other metals mixed in with gold or silver. However, in many cases, Nickel is used as a base metal in your jewelry and most fake jewelry you own contain a tiny amount of nickel. Lead and Nickel Compliant means that the jewelry contains below the threshold of the harmful amount regulated by U.S. standards. If you are sensitive and have allergies to fake jewelry, do not purchase them.

 

What is "Hypoallergenic"?
The term hypoallergenic means "below the normal level" of allergenic. Sometimes "nickel free" and "hypoallergenic" are confused as being the same meaning, but this is not true. Hypoallergenic does not mean nickel free. It means that it is relatively unlikely to cause an allergic reaction or claimed to cause fewer allergic reactions.

 

What does Gold Plated mean?

Gold plated jewelry is made of a base metal (like copper or silver) that has a very thin layer of gold applied to the top. Think of it as a top coat.

 

What does Gold Filled mean?

Gold filled jewelry is made by taking one or more sheets of solid gold and wrapping them around a base metal under intense pressure.The gold sheets are 'filled" with something other than gold. Gold filled jewelry usually contain more gold percentage than a gold plated jewelry.

 

What is Gold Vermeil?

Gold Vermeil Jewelry means gold plated jewelry with an underlying metal of sterling silver or fine silver instead of a base metal. 

 

*The more gold a product contains, the more value it will have.

 

What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling Silver is an alloy, but does not contain any nickel, so is wearable by most segments of the population. Sterling is sometimes stamped .925, because it's made of at least 92.5% pure silver. Typically the remaining 7.5% consists of copper.

Jewelry should not be worn while swimming, exercising, or showering. Perfumes, Lotions, Hair products may damage the layer of metal plating and cause discoloration. Each person's oils can make metal react differently and lead to color changes.
