Using stainless steel, sterling silver, and gold filled.
The Jada Milan Collection is also 14k Gold plated and alloy silver chains with crystals are hypoallergenic.
What is stainless steel jewelry?
Stainless steel, an alloy of iron, carbon, chromium, and traces of other metals, is highly resistant to rust or corrosion. A phenomenon known as passivation makes the steel less reactive with its environment, preventing the oxidation reaction that occurs in iron. The chromium in the alloy forms a thin, invisible film of chromium oxide on the surface of the metal that protects iron oxide, or rust, from forming. This passive film also prevents staining and discoloration of the metal under normal circumstances. Few chemicals can etch or corrode the metal, and stainless steel jewelry will not encounter most of these. However, an atmosphere that lacks sufficient oxygen can prevent the chromium oxide film from forming and passivation from occurring in certain types of stainless steel. This property is why not all stainless steel is suitable for body jewelry as piercings may preclude the formation of the oxide film that protects the metal from rusting.
What does 14k gold plated means?
Gold-plated jewelry is created using an electro-chemical process that places a layer of Gold on copper, brass, or some other base metal. The thickness of the Gold used in plating usually determines the price of the piece.
It's a good quality thin later of gold applied to the metal jewelry.
It is NOT real gold it requires special care to make it last longer:
How long will it last?
Depends on how often the item is worn and how thick the plating is. Most of our Gold-Plated Chains are heavy Gold-plated. Gold-plated jewelry is much less expensive than Gold-filled; however, the Gold color will eventually wear off as it comes into contact with the wearer's skin salts or pollutants in the air.
How to take care of your jewelry pieces?
Frequent cleaning is recommended to maintain its beauty. Wipe your jewelry carefully with a soft cloth to keep it clean and free of elements which oxidize. We recommend and use our Jewelry Polishing Cloths.
Body Chain Care :
To avoid tangling please hang your body chain after every use. Do not place it down always keep it hanging to avoid breaking and tangling.
The body chains that are stainless steel material won't turn color and the quality is high quality. They can also be exposed to water.
The body chains that are gold plated will turn color if exposed to water frequently.
