Can I shower with it?
Although we are all guilty of showering with jewelry on, (from personal experience, it did not affect the gold filled pieces or 24k gold plated stainless steel) we highly advise not to, as water can contain chlorine, salts, or harsh chemicals that will induce tarnish and dull the shine. Most especially, keep plated items away from water and chemicals because the gold layer will flake away. Store your jewelry in a clean and dry environment to keep its shine and color.
For the best care of your jewelry, do not shower with your items. If your items do turn, it can be caused by a metal-to-skin oil reaction. As each person's body oils make different metals react differently, it is not our responsibility to return or exchange your item. We apologize in advance.
My jewelry arrived damage, what do I do?
If your item arrives damaged please email email@example.com within 72 hours of delivery with photos and your order #.
How do I take care of my jewelry?
Be sure to read the description of each product to see if it is shower safe, most if not all products are. Please avoid contact with perfumes, lotions or hair products as they contain chemicals and oils that can increase the wear on your pieces. Do not use harsh chemicals, bleach, oil, jewelry cleaners, or polishing cloths, this can affect the finishing. Store in a cool, dry place to promote longevity.
My jewelry is turning color, why is this happening?
Every person’s unique skin oils react differently to certain metals and plating. We are not responsible for your skin's reaction to our products. Gold plated jewelry will turn naturally over time, it is inevitable. You can prolong the life of your Panahon Designs pieces by following our care recommendations.
