Anne Stokes Sterling Silver Jewellery FAQ
IS THIS REAL JEWELLERY?
Yes. All products by What’s Your Passion are made of 925 Sterling Silver, which means it is 92.5% pure silver which is considered fine jewellery and the same as you would find in any reputable jewellery store. Some items may be made with 14kt gold rather than sterling silver. This is the same quality gold you would find in any reputable jewellery store. Some items may be accented with gold, this is typically done with an even higher purity, 18k gold.
WILL THIS JEWELLERY TARNISH?
All jewellery (especially silver) can show signs of wear after some use. We have taken multiple steps to protect your piece from the elements. First of all, we have added a special layer of precious rhodium to our silver pieces, this means it has a thin layer of metal that is similar to platinum protecting the silver. That will mitigate most of what people associate with silver tarnishing. We also use an “E-Coating” when applicable that further protects your piece from wear and tarnish.
CAN I WEAR THIS ALL DAY, ANYWHERE?
You can wear these pieces the same way most people wear fine jewellery. Water is fine, but places like pools typically have chemicals in them that can be harmful to fine jewellery. The ocean as well is very high in salt, and can be partially corrosive to precious metals. Some of our pieces have corners that might be uncomfortable or even dangerous wearing to bed, so we recommend taking them off when sleeping.
HOW DO I CLEAN THIS?
Only use a clean, soft cloth to lightly wipe away dust from your jewellery. Only use the minimum amount of force needed to clean jewellery, it can and will scratch if too much force is applied.
