What is our jewelry made of? I am glad you asked! Our pieces are made from a high-quality lead and nickel free base metal that are plated in rhodium. We use Czech crystals and natural gemstones and our leather bracelets and necklaces are genuine leather. Like all plated jewelry, never use liquid jewelry cleaners, it will strip the plating and permanently damage the jewelry. Also, never wear into pools or spas, this too will damage the plating. The plating on all fashion jewelry may come off over time. Reasons include personal wear and care as well as individual body chemistry. To maximize the life of plated fashion jewelry we recommend limiting exposure to water: remove when washing hands, showering or doing the dishes. Also, some body and hand lotions may also damage the plating with prolonged exposure. Personal body chemistry also impacts the life of plating. People with high pH balances will naturally damage the plating more quickly. Anyone who has trouble wearing plated jewelry may experience the same effects over time with Magnolia and Vine pieces. We offer a 30- day satisfaction guarantee. Our base jewelry, including bracelets, necklaces, rings and more, is made from a mixed alloy and plated with rhodium to ensure a long-lasting shine. The snaps are made from rhodium or antique brass and the designs range from enamels to resin/acrylic stones, genuine cubic zirconia stones, natural gemstones and glass.
