The Care Guide
Each design is thoughtfully hand-crafted with love using semi-precious metals and organic gemstones. With your gentle care, they can bring you a lifetime of subtle luxury
With proper care...
All Aurum pieces are designed in Nova Scotia using 100% hypoallergenic precious metals. Due to their delicate surface, they should be stored separately from other jewelry.
-Pearls benefit from being worn and absorbing the natural oils of your skin. While they benefit from moisture, avoid repeated water contact, and remove jewelry before swimming, bathing, exercising and bedtime.
-Avoid substances that aren’t PH neutral (like household cleaners) contact with salt and chlorinated water & harmful chemicals such as perfumes, sunscreens, lotions, and hair spray.
-Oxidation is not tarnish or flaw, use a jewelry polishing cloth to clean the hardware as needed.
A good practice is that your jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing to take off.
All designs use quality nickel and lead-free findings. Our gold-filled and 925 sterling silver precious metals are perfect for all skin types. Exceptionally high-quality 14k gold-fill and 925 silver are made in the U.S. “Gold-Filled” is an industry-standard, legally requiring all materials to contain at least 5% of pure gold by weight. There is a thick layer of solid 14k gold that is heat bonded on the outside of a high-quality jeweller’s brass core. This process forms the gold-filled base that I adore working with. This bonding process ensures all pieces are 100% hypoallergenic and will last beautifully with gentle and proper care. Using a high-quality gold-fill base is the best option after solid gold for durability without the commitment.
Over 90% of freshwater pearls are known as baroque pearls. This means they have an irregular shape, size and lustre. Beautiful baroque pearls take many years to be created with each pearl being truly unique. Our handpicked AA/AAA freshwater pearls are the product of mussels, oysters and large mollusks that inhabit warmer southern waters. With uncompromising standards for quality, I create my designs with only the finest materials in the demi-fine jewelry market. Each pearl is different in its natural form making them truly individually yours.
