About Our Jewellery
JEWELLERY CARE INFORMATION
Our jewellery pieces are made of high quality jewellery grade stainless steel. We care about your pieces not only as we are hand stamping them but also long after they have left our hands.
With proper care, your Kairos Jewellery pieces can last for years to come. There are three things to keep in mind when caring for your jewellery:
- What is your jewellery in contact with (chemicals or perfumes)
- How often your jewellery is cleaned and wiped down with your jewellery cloth
- How is your piece stored
Here is some information on what our jewellery pieces are made of and how you can take care of them.
Stainless Steel Jewellery pieces:
Our stainless steel is made of the highest jewellery grade 316. Stainless steel is extremely strong and durable. It does not tarnish, corrode (will never go black) and will not discolour your skin. It is a hypo allergenic, making it perfect for those with skin irritations and allergies. Stainless Steel can be Ion Plated in Gold or Rose Gold and polished to a high shine.
The process used is for our Gold and Rose Gold products is IP Plating (Ion plating). The center of the circle is Stainless Steel followed by a layer of titanium nitride used as a bonding agent, finished with a layer of 18ct gold or rose gold, all fused together to produce a harder and more durable coating with a higher brightness than that produced through traditional plating methods.
It is really hard to determine a specific length of wear for plating as it will depend on the condition of use.
If there is high exposure to rubbing there can possibly be some wearing, this could happen when one bracelet is worn with another or wearing jewellery during heavy duties like cleaning, rubbing against a desk at work, etc. Contact with harsh chemicals like perfumes, aero guards or cleaning products could cause fading or chemical reactions as some chemicals which seem harmless contain hidden stripping agents in them. We highly recommend not spraying perfume onto your jewellery, it will damage your piece. However, the plating will never chip like other methods of plating and it will never turn green.
A piece may start to look dull due to natural body oil, dirt, grime and acidic residue build up over time. We do recommend cleaning your piece as often as you can and when you are not wearing it, keeping it in a piece of jewellery cloth or jewellery box/bag. When cleaning stainless steel jewellery there is no need to use chemicals. You can simply wash your pieces in some water or in the shower and dry thoroughly with a cotton cloth. Each order comes with a small jewellery cloth and a jewellery box/pouch. Please store your jewellery away in your jewellery box or pouch away from other items that may scratch or damage your piece.
