Gillian Julius jewelry is shipped with a care label attached:
Gold, Silver, Rose Gold And Iridium pieces of jewelry are all hand strung with Japanese cotton that has been coated with wax and threaded through multiple tubes. As mentioned on care label do not shower swim or submerge bracelet in liquid due to porous nature of cotton. It is important to avoid contact with water, detergents, soap, body creams, oils and perfume as it could cause the cotton to shrink and deconstruct.
Our components are either alloy or copper base and then combined with a small percentage of silver gold rose gold or iridium prior to plating and are sealed with a silicone top coat. All components are submerged in a saline solution prior to assembly and if cared for in the manner we have suggested you can expect not to have any deterioration in the components. Whilst a soft dry cloth can be used to remove smudge marks from the surface at no time do we suggest you use a silver cloth as it will strip the coating and plating.
We suggest that you fasten the buckle when not on the wrist or neck and place back in its protective organza or velvet bag in which it was distributed.
