Focus on skin friendly jewellery
Different metals can have a different impact on people’s skin. At Slani we focus primarily on using sterling silver and gold on any pieces which have skin contact.
These include rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. In this way, it is less likely that people with sensitive skin will have a reaction to the metal.
Often other companies will sell jewellery primarily made of inferior metals such as zinc, copper, nickel and tin to keep their costs down.
However, these metals can cause skin issues whilst also permanently tarnishing both the jewellery and the user’s skin.
Please note that whilst we focus on using high quality materials such as silver and gold which decrease the chance of a reaction, every person is different.
If you do have a reaction, please consult your doctor.
We always use at least 18K with our Gold Plating
Gold plating is where layers of gold are attached to an underlying layer of base metal. With Slani the base metal we use is sterling silver.
We also ensure that all gold plating is at least 18K to produce a better-looking item which is kinder to your skin.
It is important to note that gold plating uses a thin later of gold and is not solid gold.
As such it is important to take care of your items to prevent this layer from being damaged.
In order to do this, you would avoid exposure to moisture and chemicals as well as abrasion.
Quality pieces for an affordable price
At Slani our goal is to bring to you quality pieces made from quality metals whilst also giving you access to affordable prices.
While it would be possible to sell cheaper jewellery using inferior metals,
we feel it is important that you get an item which is safe for you and which you can be proud of.
One of the ways in which we bring cost down is through trying to be as efficient as possible and using as little unnecessary packaging as we can.
Whilst glamourus packaging looks great, ultimately you are paying something which is increasing the cost of your items
and is quickly thrown away and has a negative impact on the environment and your wallet. In this way we find ourselves often
being significantly better priced than our competitors for items of the same quality.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR NEW JEWELS
Note that in general, jewellery wears different for every individual, there are many factors based on your pH levels, sweat acidity, oiliness and humidity that affects jewellery.Avoid contact with chemicals/harsh ingredients and highly fragrant products it can affect the wear of your piece. Take your jewellery off once a month and clean them under warm water - once they are dry, a good polish with a non-abrasive tarnishing cloth will restore the shine back to most sterling silver- and gold-plated pieces.
Sweat is very acidic and can harm your jewellery. To make them last longer, always take off jewellery when doing any form of physical exercise.
Salt water can affect the wear of your jewellery, so be sure to give them a good rinse with normal water after having a dip in the ocean. If you going for a quick dip in a pool with chlorine it can greatly affect the wear time of your jewellery; we recommend taking your jewellery off when entering a chlorine pool.
Store them out of the sun and away from any dirty or moist environments like bathrooms. Note that exposure to moisture and dirt in the air, and the sun can make them go dull over time, but a good polish will restore their shine.Please note that this is only a guide of how to take care of your jewels so they can last longer.
