Caring for Your Jewels
Our experience with jewels
For a long long time, adornment by way of jewels has been a creative and therapeutic outlet for Gwen. She is fascinated with the big impact that small things such as jewelry has on your mood and your look. You might have come across the post “It’s A Love Affair” on her lifestyle site.
Gwen has a particular affinity for luxe fashion jewelry, which makes for the perfect complement to our apparel. Fashion jewelry (sometimes referenced as costume jewelry, but we prefer fashion) affords you so many options. Because of accessibility, in large due to price point, you can enjoy a wide assortment of designs.
What we carry
A collection of sourced and Gwen Beloti designed pieces. Most of our pieces are gold filled or dipped 14K gold and have a base metal of brass or sterling. Details about each individual piece can be found on the product page. Before making our jewels available for sale we wear them and get to know them, become familiar with how they wear. We only carry pieces that we believe in.
We invite you to shop and enjoy our assortment of accessories. Please note that everyone’s skin can react differently to various metals like brass, gold-filled, vermeil or plated finishes. It is best to know if you have any allergies to metals prior to purchasing your items, as Gwen Beloti Collection is not liable for miscellaneous skin reactions.
Over time, certain metals and plating can fade / tarnish (specifically gold plated) with exposure to chemicals, moisture, and sometimes due to an individual’s natural skin pH levels. This can happen sooner or later depending on various factors.
We want you to enjoy your pieces long-term so we’ve shared some care tips below that you can employ. When we talk about caring for your jewels it’s from both a long-term consumer perspective and that of a jewelry designer'.
Overall, the goal is to have stylish fun with our jewels and we want you to have a long-term relationship with them, not just a fling. To foster this healthy relationship, we need to be attentive to their needs. Okay maybe that metaphor was a bit much,.. but you should care for the things that you care about, right?... So here are some of those care tips:
Caring for your pieces
1. Don’t get them wet (water, perfume, chlorine, sunscreen, any other harsh chemicals).
2. Keep them away from oils, lotions, and soaps.
3. Try putting your jewelry on last to minimize contact with the chemicals listed above.
1. Take them off at night and store them away.
2. Store your GB jewels in a cool, dry place to avoid oxidation. Don’t store them in humid areas.
3. Put them in the jewelry box.
4. For your dainty and delicate pieces, store appropriately to avoid tangling or damage.
Anklets are delicate bracelets, careful to avoid tugging when dressing, don't wear to bed or in the shower. Store them away and enjoy them when you want to add a little glam to your ankle.
*Measure your ankle before ordering. Add a 1/2" to your ankle circumference and order the size closest to that measurement, rounding up.
With all of that said, wearing your luxe accessories is meant to be fun and carefree, as should tending to them. So simply put, don’t shower, swim, sleep or treadmill with them. Treat them with care and they should bring you joy for a while.
