Made to order pieces are not machine made, and instead is handmade with love and care. As each item is individually crafted they may have natural elements, colourings and characteristics from Fabienne's tools, craftsmanship and soldering techniques. This gives each piece a uniqueness, and does not affect how the your YCL piece wears. All crystals differ slightly as they are natural gifts from our Earth.
Our treasures are available in 3 different types of metal, all 3 of which require different care to ensure longevity of your piece. To see what metal your treasure falls under check the information & description, available on each each product page.
14k Gold Fill: Gold Fill is not plated jewellery, indicates jewellery with a thick layer of 14k solid gold, that has been bonded with another metal, usually copper or brass. When cared for correctly, due to the thick solid gold layer, 14k gold fill, unlike gold plating, will last as long as, & will wear exactly like solid gold.
Sterling Silver: Our silver pieces are made with 0.925 Sterling Silver, which is solid silver mixed with another metal.
18k Gold Micron: Micron fill is one of the highest forms of 'plating', it indicates jewellery with a heavy 3-micron layer of 18k solid gold, that has been layered over sterling silver.
CARING FOR YOUR TREASURES
14k Gold Fill: Will wear exactly the same as solid gold, can be worn in the ocean, shower etc & will not tarnish. It's best to keep your pieces away from harsh chemicals, chlorines, and perfumes, as this will take it's toll on your precious jewels. To keep your pieces shiny and clean, gently wipe over with a jewellery cleaning cloth every so often. Our little tip is to also hang fine necklaces and bracelets, when not wearing, to avoid tangling.
18k Gold Micron: Micron durability will depend on the care you take with your treasures. To ensure longevity of your micron fill treasures we suggest not wearing your micron fill pieces in the shower, ocean etc, & recommend trying to avoid moist & acidic environments where possible.
