Nani shells jewelry is solely handmade by the brand creator, natasha, who is endlessly searching for ways to limit both her personal and business carbon footprint. With that being said, natasha has perfected each step of the production process to eliminate harmful, wasteful ingredients (she even makes her own non-toxic jewelry cleaners) our vision is to lead the way in the fashion industry by showing others that they too can switch to eco-friendly, biodegradable packaging, and materials that have the least impact on our atmosphere and oceans. We want our customers to be able to shop and treat themselves knowing that from start to finish, we have exhausted all efforts to provide handmade jewelry that's ethically made with aloha. All others including custom pieces take 1-2 weeks (depending on if i need to get special supplies). The pollution of the planet is only an outward reflection of inner psychic pollution: millions of unconscious individuals not taking responsibility for their inner space. Gold-fill jewelry is an upgrade to gold plated and vermeil (which fades and leaves your skin green). Gold filled jewelry supplies are legally required to be 5% gold by weight vs the sheer.
05% layer with plated jewelry. Gold-filled jewelry is a great economical alternative to solid gold, offering gold's characteristic warm yellow tone at a fraction of the cost. The value of gold-filled is greater than gold-plated because gold-filled has an actual layer of karat gold, not just a microscopic film, as is the case with gold-plated items. The karat gold covering also significantly increases the tarnish- resistance of the base metal substrate. If taken care of, it can last as long as solid gold and won't tarnish or rub off.Gold-fill and sterling can definitely get wet. I surf and free dive in most of my jewelry. I usually take thin chains off before going into the ocean, however, because the layer of gold on a thin gf chain vs. A thick gf chain is less (based per weight). You can wash your hands, shower, and swim in the ocean with your nani shells. We do recommend steering clear of harsh chemicals (chlorine), oils, beauty products, make-up, and cleaners. Do not ever spray chemicals or perfume directly onto your jewelry. Always freshwater rinse after ocean dips & completely dry with lint-free linen. Other handmade jewelry you might love. This item is made of gold.
