As most of our pieces are costume jewellery made from Solid gold, 925 sterling silver or brass, plated with 18k rose gold, 18k gold and rhodium, they need special looking after for you to enjoy the beauty for a longer period of time. Here’s a list of tips for you on how to care for your NABILONDON jewellery. 

  

-Solid gold- 

14k gold is 58.3% gold and 41.7% alloy. The stamp is 14k or sometimes 585. 14k gold is a great choice if you're looking for a lifetime piece you can wear everyday and everywhere - yes, even in the shower!

 

-Sterling silver-

925 Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. We plate our pieces in 14k yellow gold, 18k rose gold and rhodium (which are called as vermeil) or leave it as pure sterling silver for its natural colour. We recommend that you keep your pieces away from water, sweat and cosmetics, and keep them in a tightly sealed plastic pouch so their beauty will last much longer. You can polish 925 sterling silver colour only, to keep for longer.


-Brass-

Brass is the most commonly used base metal used by luxury fashion houses to produce their costume jewellery due to its malleable characteristics. We plate our pieces in 14k yellow gold, 18k rose gold and rhodium. Plated brass pieces will, unfortunately, tarnish over time. However, if you keep the pieces away from water, sweat and cosmetics, and keep them in a tightly sealed plastic pouch their beauty will last much longer.

 

-Cubic zirconia-

Cubic zirconia is one of the highest quality replica of natural diamonds, and sometimes clearer and brighter than natural diamonds.


-Fresh water pearl-

Freshwater pearls are created in mussels or oysters in rivers, lakes or ponds and tend to be more irregular in shape and more varied in colour than acrylic pearls.
