Jewelry Care Guide

Our pieces are made to withstand real life, and with proper jewelry cleaning, they will continue to shine. Scroll down to view our jewelry care tips.

925 Sterling Silver Jewelry

Sterling Silver is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper by weight. We plate our silver jewelry in rhodium (one of the costliest precious metals because of its stability), which gives it extra shine and durability. All of TTT sterling silver pieces are stamped with “S925”.

How to care for sterling silver jewelry:

• Remove your silver jewelry before exercising, washing your hands, or showering. Sterling silver jewelry oxidizes when exposed to the elements.

• Always apply perfumes, creams, and hair care products before wearing your sterling silver pieces.

• To clean tarnished sterling silver jewelry, polish gently with a silver polishing cloth (for the silver pieces ordered from TTT Jewelry, please inform us if you need silver cloth included).

• When not worn, store your sterling silver piece in a safe, dry place to protect it from the elements of daily exposure.

18k Gold Vermeil Jewelry

Unlike regular gold plating, gold vermeil involves a much thicker layer of gold to give it that much more durability. For our Vermeil pieces, we apply a thick layer that is a minimum of 2.5 microns to 3 microns thick, as required by the Federal Trade Commission to classify vermeil, layered over 925 sterling silver. All of TTT 18k gold vermeil pieces are stamped with “S925”.

How to care for TTT 18K gold vermeil jewelry:

• Always remove your gold vermeil jewelry before exercising, washing your hands, or showering.

• Always apply perfumes, creams, and hair care products before wearing your vermeil pieces.

• To clean gold vermeil jewelry, buff gently with a soft and dry 100% cotton cloth or a microfiber cloth.
