What is Hand Stamped Jewelry?
Hand stamping is done by hand not by a machine. This is what makes each piece unique and one of a kind. Because they are hand stamped there will be variations in alignment or spacing of the letters or some letters stamped deeper than others and this should be seen as an enhancement to your piece, not a flaw or defect. This is what adds to the uniqueness and charm of each piece.
What metals do you use?
I use sterling silver and 14kt gold filled. Gold filled is gold that is bonded to a core metal. Gold filled items are 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plated. Most pieces are made with 20 gauge metal which makes a thick solid piece. To clean your piece use a soft cloth that is non-abrasive (gold is a soft metal and will scratch easily) and specifically made for jewelry or a mild soap, pat dry with a non-abrasive cloth. When not wearing your piece keep it in the pouch it comes in. Do not wash the druzy with any soaps or polishes as this will damage the stone. Do not wear your piece in hot tubs or pools as the chemicals will interact with the metals and damage them. Sterling silver will tarnish, this is a natural oxidation process but doesn’t ruin the metal just use a polishing cloth.
