Of course you can. All our jewelry components and chains are nickel free. All jewelry is also lead and cadmium free.
How recycled is the jewelry in Recycled Gems?
For every piece, we explain in the item description which parts are recycled and which new. All jewelry components like the earring hooks and chains are new as we need to be able to guarantee that they are nickel free. Recycled means us something that has actually been used before, not something we purchase new and use for other purpose. That is why recycled collection is ecological. As parts are recycled they might have minor marks on them but we always make sure it is nothing too visible.
How do I store and take care of my acrylic jewelry?
Acrylic jewelry needs to be stored separately from other jewelry as it can get scrathes from for example earring hooks. It also does not like to be dropped or really cold minus temperatures. Also be careful to add your hairspray and perfume before putting on your jewelry on as they can cause stains.
Store them well away from the sun rays and heat and do not store them on the damp space like bathroom either. Necklaces are best kept hanging. Take them off before going to bed, taking a shower, swimming or doing sports. Also take rings off before washing your hands and dry your fingers well before putting them back on. the dampness between ring and finger can cause bacteria to grow, which can cause difference in color or even rash to some with sensitive skin.
Jewelry that is next to your skin, is good to wipe clean once in while with dry cloth to get rid of the bacteria. It is best to put your jewelry on last after adding hairspray and perfume.
Can I go swimming or take a shower with my jewellery on?
Not without ruining them. Jewelry might get loose or the colors might change so jewelry needs to be taken off before swimming or showering. Rings should also be taken off before washing your hands as the dampness that stays between the ring and you ringer lets bacteria grow. Some of our jewelry is splash proof only, so please read the item description well.
What if I drop my jewelry and it breaks?
Unfortunately we cannot be held responsible on items broken beacuse they are dropped. It doesn´t necessary always break when dropped, it depends on the angle it falls down and on which surface. But as any other delicate item, it can break down so please take good care of them.
I am buying necklace as a gift. Can you send it straight to the receiver?
Sure we can and we can also add a note from you if you wish. When placing the order just remember to choose the shipping costs according the recipients address. Unfortunately we cannot wrap the present as it need to be protected for the delivery.
If you wish to order some items for yourself as well, a separate order needs to be placed for those.
