MATERIALS & CARE

With Bling jewellery is designed with the intention to suit everyone – therefore we offer a wide range of different hypoallergenic materials and designs. After all, we want everyone to enjoy our jewellery, no matter what their needs or budget.

Materials and Care

METALS

SOLID GOLD (10k / 14k)

Our 10k and 14k solid gold pieces are made to last forever. They are available in either a classic yellow or on-trend rose gold. Since gold is one of theleast reactive metals, it will not oxidize, discolour or scratch easily. It is also great for sensitive ears so you can wear your jewellery all day, every day.

STERLING SILVER

925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. We plate our silver products in silver, gold, rose gold or left as-is for its natural colour. Sterling silver earring posts are malleable by nature and easily tarnished. 

TITANIUM

Amongst the most hypoallergenic materials known to man, titanium is both durable and affordable. They are a great choice of material as piercing earrings or for those with sensitive ears.

PLATED METAL

Brass is the most commonly used base metal for jewellery. Our products are plated in silver, gold or rose gold. While the plating will, unfortunately, wear off and tarnish over time, taking good care of them can prolong their beauty.

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY

WEARING

We recommend removing your jewellery when you shower and swim (chlorinated or sea water). Avoid spraying perfume and applying creams directly on your jewellery. We also recommend removing your jewellery while exercising, as sweat can speed up the tarnishing process for sterling silver and plated pieces. While strong, our jewellery is still fine and delicate and will break if pulled during vigorous activities.

CLEANING

Sterling silver and solid gold pieces can be cleaned using a polishing cloth or ideally a jewellery cleansing solution. Plated pieces need a little extra care. Do not use a polishing cloth on plated jewellery as this will remove the plated layer - instead you can use a soft lint-free cloth. Please note that over time, plating wears away from continuous wear, and you may find that your jewellery needs re-plating after a few years.

STORING

Jewellery should be stored in a cool, dry place out of sunlight. With Bling jewellery comes in our branded box, and we recommend your pieces are stored in them to prevent tarnishing or oxidisation. Zip-lock bags are a viable alternative if you have thrown away our lovely packaging.
