All the silver The Butterfly Talks items are made of 100% sterling silver.
Most of the gold items are brass on the inside and 18 karat gold plated.
(some gold items are made of sterling silver with an 18k gold plating.
As it’s certainly tempting to wear your The Butterfly Talks items all the time, we recommend removing when doing any of the following activities excessively:
- Gold plated jewelry does not have the same characteristics as solid gold. It is water resistant, however, overexposure to water may wear off the plating faster. For long-lasting plating, we advise removing jewelry when showering, swimming and exercising.
- Avoid interaction with harsh chemicals found in hot tubs, perfume and cleaning products.
Scratches and user marks may occur on the plating and sterling silver pieces. This is normal when wearing it for a longer time on a daily basis. Also it’s completely natural for sterling silver & gold plated items to oxidize or lose their gloss over time.
Please note: Brass may have an effect on your skin. That being said, everyone reacts differently to metals.
