HERMINA WRISTWEAR jewelry is made of .925 sterling silver and all gold plated jewelry recieve a 24K plating.
The jewellery has either a polished or mat surface. Please note that a mat surface will become shinier with wear.
These surface treatments will fade over time because of contact with clothes, hard surfaces, sweat, perfume, hairspray, air pollution and others.
Everyday or very frequent wear, may speed up this process, especially on items like rings and bracelets, which have more frequent contact with surfaces.
For the gold or black platinum platings, 3 micron layers are added on to build up thickness, thus the plating lasts longer. In theory it should last about a year if it has zero contact with liquids, but this varies in accordance to how often the jewellery is worn.
Rings wear the quickest, because they get touched/banged constantly, while earrings can sometimes last 2-3 years.
You should treat your jewellery like any other wardrobe item.
The gold plating must get a new gold layer on when needed.
