About our productsMost products are hand crafted, therefore not all pieces will be identical or have the exact same measurements, although we strive to make each piece as similar as possible.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR JEWELLERY
Like all material that is not real gold the chains will eventually tarnish with time. We all want our favourite pieces to last forever, but lets be real, the only way that will happen is by buying 100% solid Gold.
We care a lot about quality and it is one of our most important key values here at dixiegraze. The materials and the gold plating we use is of high quality. Our Stainless steel products especially are very durable against tarnish. Many of our customers can wear our jewellery for up to 1 year before any significant colour change starts to show. (different base metals will vary)
Dixiegraze can however not guarantee any time limit for how long an item will last as its really up to each individual person and depending on how you care for it. Gold Plated in general simply means there is a thin layer of real gold on top of whatever base material is used. In theory its similar to costume jewellery, however the life length on Gold Plated jewellery is much longer than costume jewellery you buy from famous retail stores. Most costume jewellery from high street retailers will always tarnish after just a couple of weeks.
The rate at which things tarnish will vary depending on the amount of exposure to hot weather, water and your body chemistry: how acidic it is and how much you sweat etc.
And last but not least; your jewellery will last longer if kept away from other materials or humid weather conditions, for instance if you keep it in the box it came with. This way it wont rub off to other materials. Another vital key to avoid discolouration is by NOT spraying perfume straight on your jewellery, try to always remember to spray your perfume/body spray before wearing your necklace.
