For most of our designs we use, Sterling Silver and 14k Gold Filled chain and findings.
Sterling Silver is a precious metal and will last forever. Though sterling silver will oxidize over time, it can be polished to its original state. (Complimentary cleaning cloth available upon request.) Oxidized silver is intentional in some of our pieces and has a darker metal appearance. It should not be polished unless you want it to be bright silver instead of dark.
14K Gold Filled is a great alternative to full 14K Gold. Just like 14K, it does not tarnish, chip or turn your skin green, all at a fraction of the cost. It is meant to last decades. To clean, simply wash with a mild soap and warm water. It is best to avoid chemically-treated water like pools and spas.
Both Sterling Silver & 14K Gold Filled are hypoallergenic. Though all of our findings, including clasps, ear wires, and ear posts are always Sterling Silver or 14K Gold Filled, we do sometimes use heavier, mixed metal chains like brass and gunmetal in our designs. All metals used are listed in product descriptions.
To clean your Bloom Jewelry, we recommend you simply wash with a mild soap and warm water. Though we source high quality components, everyone’s skin is different. If you find you have a sensitivity, we will take the jewelry back and issue an immediate return.
