We source gemstones and metals from all across the globe to make our jewellery. We like to use natural gemstones (colours may vary to those pictured on website due to the stones organic nature) and our pieces are made with sterling silver, 14k gold fill, gold plate and 14k gold.
Sterling silver is a popular metal choice that is long lasting but can tarnish over time. To keep this from happening to your silver jewellery, make sure you store it in a dry and cool place (away from sunlight) when not wearing it, and that it is separate from other jewellery pieces. If it does tarnish, silver jewellery is easy to clean with a polishing cloth or a solution of warm, soapy water.
Gold filled jewellery is an amazing, quality alternative to solid gold. It is a layer of gold (typically 5% of the item's total weight) pressure bonded to either silver or a base metal. Gold fill jewellery is tarnish resistant and can be worn by people who have metal allergies.
Gold vermeil jewellery is when a layer of gold is plated onto sterling silver. Over time, and dependent on how often the jewellery is worn, gold plating can wear off or tarnish and often, it will need to be re-plated.
14K gold jewellery is generally hallmarked with either 14K or 585. It is 58.5% pure gold. Because pure gold is too soft to be worn everyday, it is essential to create a metal mixture when using gold for jewellery. 14K gold is an alloy composition made of gold and durable metals like zinc, nickel, silver and copper along with a rhodium plating. This sturdy blend is resistant to corrosion, rust and tarnish. The ZA Fine range is crafted in 14K gold.
All online jewellery purchases come with a 6 month warranty. This warranty is effective from the date of purchase and covers manufacturing faults and defects in materials. We will offer a repair or replacement once the item has been proven by our workshop to be faulty.
This warranty does not cover loss, accidental breakage and general wear and tear. General wear and tear includes tarnishing and fading of plated jewellery, and therefore, is not covered by warranty. Any repairs requested after the offered 6 month warranty period will incur repair and postage fees. Repairs required after this date are considered a result of general wear and tear. Proof of purchase is required for all warranty claims.
