About our Jewellery
NICKEL AND LEAD FREE JEWELLERY
All jewellery from Dansk Smykkekunst is nickel and lead free and conforms to the regulations as laid out in the EU directive. We always manufacture our jewellery to the highest of standards. The base material used is copper or brass; this is then plated with 14-carat gold, sterling silver or rhodium. Rhodium is a fine precious metal such as silver but the advantage of rhodium is that it unlike silver does not oxidize. In addition our jewellery are made of semi precious stones, beads, glass - or fresh water pearls, Mother of Pearl and enamels all selected from the best quality available. All sticks at our earrings are made of surgical steel.
HOW TO TREAT YOUR JEWELLERY
The more careful you are with your jewellery, the longer it will last. The plating of the jewellery is affected by cosmetics, perfume, alcohol and medicine consumption, sweat, water and body imbalance. These factors provoke a chemical reaction in the metal resulting in oxidizing. Therefore we recommend that you remove your jewellery when bathing, exercising or sleeping. If you find it necessary to clean your jewellery, e.g. if you have been in contact with chlorine, perfume or hairspray, you should only use lukewarm water and a soft cloth.
