Your WGG pieces are made to last in normal everyday wear. This means your jewelry can come in normal contact with sweat, water, and soap (hello, handwashing) with no issues!
WHAT IS YOUR JEWELRY MADE OF? IS IT GOLD PLATED? What is 925 Sterling Silver?
Our jewelry is made out of 100% stainless steel. We have very view brass pieces and 925 Sterling Silver pieces will be coming soon. The WGG collection pieces are all made in small batches and carefully curated with thought in mind. In order to abide by our true long lasting quality jewelry, our pieces are gold plated with a .5 micron ( some PVD plating) and set to last for years (with proper care).
WILL MY JEWELRY TURN MY SKIN GREEN, RUST or OXIDIZE?
While all jewelry will eventually fade away with time and unproper care. Our pieces are made to last for 12 plus months. All our materials skin-safe, and won’t cause chemical reactions. Our base metals and super strong coating ceramics are used in surgical tools and implants. Please be sure to read the product descriptions before purchasing.
CAN I SHOWER IN MY JEWELRY?
Yes, but always be mindful to take it off when you can and keep in a safe place. Always polish jewelry with a cloth and keep in your WGG for proper storing.
Rings and pendant pieces yes but again please be mindful of everyday wear, bending and adjusting. Rings and pendants come in contact with surfaces/skin more often and can scratch easily. Scratches happen most often in the shower. These abrasions combined with chemicals we can't account for what can cause your jewelry's scratches to look more pronounced.
WILL MY JEWELRY BREAK?
Rings + Pendants +Necklaces
Rings and pendants should never dent and break. Please be mindful (when adjusting rings/pieces ) of what they come in contact with since our materials are stronger than most surfaces. Importantly, rough surfaces can also leave micro scratches on your pieces, shortening your jewelry’s longevity.
Some of our chains are very strong and we caution you to wear them carefully. Our chains are purposefully made so that in extreme cases of impact or pulling, they can still come apart.
WILL MY JEWELRY FADE?
With normal wear, your jewelry will never completely fade and lose its gold or rose gold treatment. However, depending on wear and activities, it could eventually turn from a 14k/18k gold lighter gold color. If your jewelry comes in contact often with sweat, soaps, gels, perfumes, and lotions, we recommend rinsing your jewelry with clean water to prolong the finish so that it doesn’t have to work as hard to fight the chemicals and acids.
WILL MY JEWELRY SCRATCH?
In heightened activity, micro scratches can develop that will contribute to less longevity. Don’t drag your piece on rough surfaces. Do not scrub your jewelry with a loofah or dish sponge.
IS MY JEWELRY SKIN SAFE?
Yes our stainless steel and 925 sterling silver pieces are hypoallergenic and biocompatible (won't harm living tissue) materials( this makes our pieces sustainable and long lasting). Both are used in medical tools and implants. Although are pieces do contain a very small amount of nickel, its composition doesn’t allow the nickel to react to skin in the way it normally would, allowing it to be hypoallergenic.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY JEWELRY?
To clean, gently wipe over your jewelry with a clean, soft cloth ( our 925 sterling silver rings and stainless steel pieces all come with a cloth). You can also wash your jewelry with soap and rinse with clean water, then dry with a clean, soft cloth.
