Ellie Vail jewelry is made from hypoallergenic metals such as stainless steel and copper, which are plated in 18k gold. These materials can be exposed to a normal amount of water/sweat.
The main cause of rusting, corroding, skin irritation and discoloration is the underlying metal. Our metals will not corrode, rust, or irritate the skin.
Overtime, even the highest quality plated jewelry will need to be re plated as plating natural wears down overtime.
*Avoid all contact with lotions and perfumes as both will contribute to fading the plating a lot faster.
