Hailey Jane Jewellery is made from several different metals, which include but are not limited to brass, stainless steel, plated 14k & 18k gold, rhodium, sterling silver and 14k gold fill. These metals are nickel-free and hypo-allergenic for most people, unless you have an extreme allergy and can only wear solid gold. As a general rule of thumb, avoid wearing your jewellery in the shower, when sleeping and when exercising. Perfumes and oils from your skin can transfer to the metal and should be washed off periodically. Depending on your skin’s makeup, brass jewellery may either brighten or acquire a darker, antique patina with repeated wear. While we love the way this looks, you may not. To restore to a brand-new shiny luster, use a commercial brass cleaner which is available at many hardware stores. Or you can use toothpaste and an old toothbrush, which will often work. 14k gold fill pieces and sterling silver are much less likely to undergo this wear if properly taken care of. Remember these metals have a tendency to react or darken according to the pH of your skin.
Care should be taken when cleaning gold-filled/sterling silver and gold plated jewellery to protect the layer of gold from being worn away or nicked. Do not use abrasive compounds to clean your jewellery and ensure you wipe it with a soft fabric.
Due to the nature of hand-crafted delicate jewellery, please wear, handle and store with care. Store your jewellery away from moist areas, and preferably in the box or gift bag it came in.
Hailey Jane Jewellery is entirely handmade and therefore there will always be some variation between pieces. These pieces are fine and delicate and should be handled with love and care. Normal wear and tear on jewellery items are not considered a fault.
Hailey Jane pieces use predominantly natural stones. These can naturally vary in shade, colour and shape. Stones shown in online images may not always match the stone in the jewellery piece purchased.
