Jewelry Care:

All steel pieces are coated with an anti-rust coating to prevent the steel from rusting. Taking care of your jewelry will insure the pieces longevity. I suggest storing your steel jewelry in a dry environment and to take it off before jumping in the pool showering or going to the gym. The crushed pearl coating can chip off over time, but is generally pretty durable. If you ever need pieces re-coated in crushed pearl please contact me!

Items can always be made in sterling silver upon request. Sterling silver does not rust and requires less careful care. Silver does tarnish with wear but it will not damage the integrity of the piece, only change the way the jewelry looks. If a sterling silver piece has a crushed pearl coating I would still stay away from water while wearing the piece.
