What's The Deal With Waterproof Jewellery?

What’s almost as good as real gold? Waterproof, 18K gold plated jewellery of course!

We are so excited to introduce our latest collection of gold plated jewellery! For the very first this the collection solely consists of stainless steel, 18K gold plated jewellery pieces. And why is this so important, you might ask?

For starters, the combination of stainless steel plated with thick 18K gold is waterproof, which means your favorite necklace, ring or earrings won’t disappear into that black hole that is your beach bag because you had to remove them before you took a dip in the ocean.
It means you are free to shower and lotion up without too much worry that your jewellery pieces are going to turn an odd shade of coppery green.
Essentially, it means you will be getting a whole lot more wear out of your favorite accessories and this is something we can 100% get behind!

Although we stock an array of gold plated jewellery ranging in base metals from brass to copper, our aim is to move toward only carrying waterproof gold plated jewellery in future and here’s why.

 

The combination is pretty happy in water due to the durable nature of Stainless Steel. The thick layer of PVD gold is less prone to tarnishing over time and did we mention these piece are hypoallergenic?!  

Gold plating bonds well with Stainless Steel, however, it’s worth noting that over time this plating will fade if over-exposed to harsh chemicals found in perfumes. I’ve quite happily been swimming in the ocean as well as run and showed in my CRUZ SNAKE CHAIN for the last few months and it is still shimmering away, however, I take care when applying perfume.  Some of the smaller link chains that form part of these pieces are not made of Stainless Steel so these areas will be more sensitive to exposure too. 

With a little bit of extra care, we just know that you will enjoy these daily basics for many years to come and we’re so excited to wake up, go about our day and night in our latest collection of earrings, rings and necklaces – WE HOPE YOU ARE TOO
