Q. What is the metal content of your jewelry?
A. Most of our jewelry is made of 100% sterling silver, including all chains and findings. On occasion, we have jewelry cast in lead-free pewter or surgical stainless steel. When we have jewelry that is not 100% sterling silver, this is listed clearly both in the title and description.
Q. What is sterling silver?
A. Sterling silver 92.5% pure silver alloyed with a mixture of other metals (usually copper and zinc) to make it harder. Pure silver is generally not hard enough to create durable jewelry.
Q. Is your jewelry nickel-free?
A. Our pieces in sterling silver and pewter are nickel-free. Our stainless steel pieces may contain nickel.
Q. Can I get a different chain length?
A. We now offer chains in 16, 18, 20, and 22 inches. If you need even more length, we do offer extender chains that will allow you to add up to 6 inches of additional length to any necklace. Visit our Chains section to find extender chains and to see the various styles and lengths of chains that we have available.
Q. How do I care for my jewelry?
A. To store your jewelry, it is best to wrap it in a soft cloth and store it in a zip-lock bag to keep pendants from scratching each other and chains from tangling together. Sterling silver naturally tarnishes over time. The tarnish can be quickly removed with any silver cleaner or silver-polishing cloth. We also recommend protecting your jewelry from chemicals that can be found in lotions, perfume, hair spray, or chlorine.
