All Joseph Copenhagen jewelry is made of .925 Sterling Silver plated with high quality 18-carat gold plate.

Wear and tear over time

Each piece of Joseph Copenhagen jewelry is carefully crafted and requires delicate handling. Our pieces are either polished, matte, oxidized, black rhodium plated or plated with 18-carats of gold. We plate our gold-plated designs with minimum 2 micron of pure 18-carat gold, which is one of the highest qualities in gold plating, in order to preserve the gold, the longest time possible. However, it is IMPORTANT TO NOTE that any surface treatments will fade and be worn off with frequent wear. This is normal and not a reason for a query. The surfaces on items, which are in contact with skin like rings and bracelets, will fade faster due to contact with sweat, lotion, perfume or any other fluids.

How to take care of your jewelry

Perfume, lotion, hairspray, water, salt, sun, chlorine or any other fluids and chemicals are your jeweler’s worst enemy, so try to avoid any direct contact with these substances. As a result, it is very important to take your jewelry off when washing your hands, bathing, doing household tasks, sleeping, tanning, going to the beach or doing sports.

How to store and protect your jewelry

The best way to protect and store your jewelry when not in use is in an airtight bag or jewelry box, like the one you receive with your Joseph Copenhagen order. Keep it away from sunlight and humid spaces like a bathroom and store it in a dark drawer if not in the box.
