MATERIALS

What is your jewellery made of? 

Necklaces
Most of my jewellery is made from stainless steel and if so, it will be clearly listed in the description as such. For necklaces that are listed as stainless steel, this will include the chain and findings, as well as the pendant itself. This is because ALL of my chains and findings are made from stainless steel but with a range of different metal pendants.

Where a pendant is made of silver plated base metal alloys, it will be listed clearly in the description as such. If you are highly allergic to base metal alloys (such as zinc, brass, or copper), then I would recommend 100% stainless steel jewellery for you.

Earrings
To ensure they are hypoallergenic and safe for sensitive ears, all of my hoops, hooks and studs are made from either stainless steel, surgical steel, or titanium.

Alchemy Jewellery
In terms of the Alchemy jewellery that I stock, these are made from fine English pewter and are Lead, cadmium & nickel compliant.

Will your rings turn my skin green? 

When rings turns your skin green, it's either because of a chemical reaction between the acids in your skin and the metal of the ring, or because of a reaction with another substance on your skin, such as lotion, and the metal of the ring. The colour is not harmful, though if you experience a rash or other sensitivities, then you should stop wearing the jewellery. To prevent staining of the skin, you can coat the inside of the ring with clear nail polish.

If this is still a concern for you, then I would only suggest Stainless Steel as a material for you because this one is the least likely to stain your skin. Even Sterling Silver can stain your skin black because of the reactions outlined above. This is not a fault with the jewellery and refunds will not be given in these instances.
