Generally, handcrafted jewelry should only be put on after washing or applying any makeup, hair spray, gels, lotions or perfume. Keep away from extreme temperatures and over-exposure to direct sunlight. It is not recommended to wear your jewelry while swimming, showering, or washing hands.

Is it OK to never take off your handcrafted jewelry?
According to Marina Peredo, M.D., F.A.A.D, Associate Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and founder of Marina I. Peredo, M.D., P.C. Dermatology and Spatique Medical Spa in Smithtown, N.Y., continuously wearing jewelry really isn't a big deal -- as long as you clean it regularly and the materials don't irritate your skin. "You can potentially damage your jewelry by constantly wearing it, but there are no major health risks to wearing jewelry every day, which includes sleeping and showering," she says. Although "metals that are added to gold and silver such as nickel can be extremely irritating to the skin," says Dr. Peredo. We suggest removing your jewelry for sleeping to avoid any inconvenience.
Why buy handcrafted jewelry?

Why is handcrafted jewelry better?
Gifting handcrafted jewelry can often make a better impression. As these pieces are one of a kind, the wearer will never have to worry about originality. You’ll be able to say “there aren’t 2 of the same one”. Handcrafted is unique.
What is the difference between plated and filled?
Plating is a process of electroforming that deposits gold on the surface of a base material. In terms of durability, gold plating needs more care. Generally wears off quickly and can’t stand up to wear, water, or heat over time. Gold-filled is produced through a unique bonding process of distinct material layers of brass and gold alloy using both heat and pressure. The process creates a more permanent bond. Gold plated pieces, for example, are a better option for “in the moment” occasions. Because they don’t cost a lot, you can buy them without having to waste sweat and tears second-guessing whether your purchase was worth it. Gold plated jewelry is great for trendy pieces, blingy party pieces, and simple accessories for work or play. Gold filled jewelry, on the other hand, is best used where durability and return on investment are top priorities. It makes for great gifts for graduations, anniversaries, and other similar events. Gold filled jewelry is also an excellent choice for classic pieces that you wear daily or novelty pieces that you can flaunt for the rest of your life.
