Q: What materials are used in Boem Collection jewelry?
A: Our jewelry is crafted using high-quality materials such as gold fill, gold plated, and gold plated with PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) coatings.
Q: What is gold fill?
A: Gold fill is a process where a thick layer of solid gold is mechanically bonded to a base metal core, usually brass. This technique results in a durable and long-lasting piece of jewelry that has the appearance of solid gold but at a more affordable price point.
Q: What is gold plated?
A: Gold plated jewelry involves a thin layer of gold that is electroplated onto a base metal. The base metal can vary and may include materials such as brass, copper, or silver. Gold plated jewelry provides an attractive gold appearance, but the plating may wear off over time with regular use.
Q: What is gold plated with PVD?
A: Gold plated with PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) is a more advanced technique that involves depositing a thin layer of gold onto a base metal using a vaporized form of the metal. This process creates a more durable and long-lasting gold layer that is resistant to fading and wear.
Q: How can I care for my gold fill jewelry?
A: Gold fill jewelry can be cared for similarly to solid gold pieces. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals or abrasive materials, as they may damage the gold layer. To clean, use a soft cloth or a mild soap solution, and gently wipe the jewelry. Store gold fill jewelry in a separate pouch or compartment to prevent scratching.
Q: How can I care for my gold plated jewelry?
A: To extend the life of your gold plated jewelry, keep it away from water, harsh chemicals, and excessive sweat. Avoid wearing gold plated jewelry during activities such as swimming or exercising. Clean your gold plated jewelry with a soft cloth or a mild jewelry cleaner, and ensure it is completely dry before storing it in a jewelry box or pouch.
Q: How can I care for my gold plated jewelry with PVD?
A: Gold plated jewelry with PVD is generally more resistant to fading and wear compared to traditional gold plating. However, it is still recommended to handle it with care. Clean your gold plated PVD jewelry using a soft cloth or a mild jewelry cleaner. Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals and store it in a separate compartment or pouch to prevent scratching.
Q: Is Boem Collection jewelry hypoallergenic?
A: We strive to provide jewelry that is suitable for sensitive skin. However, individual sensitivities may vary. If you have known allergies or sensitivities to certain metals, it is advisable to check the product description or contact our customer support for specific details on the materials used in a particular piece of jewelry.
