When you are not wearing Satya Jewelry, it should be stored in an airtight plastic bag. This will prevent tarnishing and scratching.
While Wearing Jewelry
Exposure to water, lotions, body oils, cosmetics, perfumes, excessive heat and humidity and cleaning agents may cause discoloration and affect the finish of the jewelry.
How to Clean Jewelry
After much research, we have found that polishing papers work best to restore luster to our sterling silver pieces. Sterling silver pieces can be cleaned best with our polishing paper. Unfortunately, gold plated jewelry cannot be cleaned.
Satya Jewelry is cast in sterling silver, 24KT gold plate over brass, gunmetal or rose gold. Plating is bonded to brass with palladium (from the platinum family), creating a quality, long-wearing plate with proper care. Ear wires do not contain brass, instead remaining gold vermeil (sterling silver with 24kt gold overlay).
Brass (base metal), then a layer of Palladium (one of the PGM’s, platinum group metals), 20 mils of Gold, matte
Sterling Silver .925, matte and slightly oxidized in order to make any designs pop
Some larger styles are Brass with a Palladium layer and 20 mils of Silver plating over that, matte
Gunmetal in 2 ways:
