All of your GK Jewelry is made from Sterling Silver and/or 14K Gold. Properly protecting and caring for your jewelry will help keep it looking beautiful through years of use. All of our Sterling Silver has been electroplated with Rhodium. Rhodium is a chemical element that is a rare, silvery-white, hard, and chemically inert transition metal and a member of the platinum group. It is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals. Rhodium is a so-called noble metal, resistant to corrosion, found in platinum- or nickel ores together with the other members of the platinum group metals. White gold is often plated with a thin rhodium layer to improve its appearance while sterling silver is often rhodium plated for tarnish resistance. Rhodium plated silver may be put in an ultrasonic cleaner with a mild soap solution for cleaning, or cleaned in any mild household soap solution. It is safe to steam clean as well. It should not be subjected to Silver Cleaning solutions however. These solutions are acidic in content, and will wear away the rhodium plating. They are designed to eat away tarnish from unprotected Silver products. Over a period of time dependent on wear and care patterns, rhodium will wear away. Pieces can always be replated at a local jeweler or sent back to our factory for refinishing. Contact customer service for more information about this service. Other general jewelry care guidelines below come from the Jewelers of America (JA): General Tips Store your jewelry in a clean, dry place. Keep your jewelry in a fabric-lined jewelry case, or in a box with compartments and dividers. If you prefer to use ordinary boxes, wrap each piece individually in soft tissue paper. Don't jumble your jewelry pieces in a drawer or jewelry case. Pieces can scratch each other.
