JEWELRY CARE TIPS & INFORMATION
ADMIRAL ROW - QUALITY, AFFORDABILITY & TARNISH RESISTANT
At Admiral Row, we believe that high-quality jewelry doesn't have to come at a high price. That's why we offer a wide range of pieces crafted with a variety of materials to ensure that you get a quality piece that you'll cherish for years to come. And, for those with sensitive skin, all our pieces are nickel and lead-free, so you can shop with confidence.
14K GOLD-FILLED JEWELRY - AFFORDABLE QUALITY
Our 14K Gold-Filled Jewelry is the perfect combination of quality and affordability. Unlike gold-plated jewelry that is electroplated over brass, gold-filled jewelry involves an outer layer of 14K gold that is pressure-bonded to the brass base metal and contains at least 5% gold by weight. This technique is more durable than plated and vermeil jewelry, providing a longer lifespan for your pieces with the right care. And, since it's safe for customers with metal allergies, you can shop with confidence. CARE INFORMATION FOR 14K GOLD-FILLED JEWELRY: Gold-Filled Jewelry is also super low maintenance and more durable than gold-plated or gold vermeil jewelry. Over time, your gold-filled piece may still need some care. We recommend using a wet cloth, gentle brush, or soap to clean your Admiral Row piece. Also, we still recommend avoiding contact with the water in the ocean or pool; and lotion, perfume, oils, or similar substances to ensure the longevity of your piece.
GOLD VERMEIL JEWELRY - GOLD PLATED OVER STERLING SILVER
Our Gold Vermeil Jewelry is made of a thick layer of gold (2.5 microns) electroplated over sterling silver (.925) for maximum quality. As with gold-plated jewelry, we recommend avoiding contact with water, lotions, perfumes, oils, or similar substances to ensure the longevity of your piece. CARE INFORMATION FOR GOLD PLATED OVER STERLING SILVER JEWELRY: We recommend gold vermeil jewelry as the last item you put on when accessorizing your outfit. Remove your Admiral Row piece and run a soft cloth over it before bed. Please do not use any polish or soap to clean the jewelry, as it could strip the plating. Carefully store your jewelry to avoid tangling and scratches.
STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY - GOLD PLATED OVER STAINLESS STEEL
Our stainless steel jewelry is crafted with a hypoallergenic grade 316L for greater resistance to tarnish. Considered one of the safest metals for sensitive skin, our stainless steel jewelry is plated using an IP Plating method, where two layers of material are applied in a vacuum chamber, ensuring that your piece will not change color or tarnish with normal use. Perfect for stackable rings, which have the most exposure to water and other substances. CARE INFORMATION FOR GOLD PLATED OVER STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY: We recommend that stainless steel jewelry be the last item you put on when you accessorize your outfit. Remove your Admiral Row piece and run a soft cloth over it before bed. Do not use polish or soap to clean the jewelry, as it could strip the plating. Carefully store your jewelry to avoid tangling and scratches.
GOLD PLATED JEWELRY - GOLD PLATED OVER BRASS
Our gold-plated jewelry, constructed with a brass foundation, boasts a generously thick layer of gold electroplated to ensure optimal durability. We utilize materials with the most robust plating possible to offer you a lasting shine. To maintain the luster and longevity of your chosen piece, it's essential to steer clear of water, lotions, perfumes, oils, and other harsh chemicals. After wearing, a gentle wipe with a dry cloth helps retain its shine. We recommend avoiding polishes or soaps that might compromise the plating. If you have sensitivities or allergies to brass, please consider this before purchasing. CARE INFORMATION FOR GOLD-PLATED JEWELRY OVER BRASS JEWELRY: For the best upkeep and durability of your Admiral Row gold-plated piece, please ensure it's the last accessory you put on when dressing. After your day, gently remove your jewelry and wipe it down with a soft cloth. Refrain from using polish or soap, as these might diminish the plating. For safekeeping, store your jewelry meticulously to prevent tangles and potential scratches.
THINGS TO KNOW
Jewelry can interact with individual skin chemistry, resulting in occasional coloration. Factors like skin pH, personal hydration, humidity, and even your skincare products can lead to a benign greenish hue on the skin. Don't fret; this tint is harmless and can be quickly wiped away using a dab of rubbing alcohol or makeup remover.
The metal quality of each item is transparently detailed on its respective product page, reinforcing our commitment to informed choices. All Admiral Row jewelry is affirmed to be nickel and lead-free. Note that natural tarnishing or hue shifts aren't categorized under repairs.
