FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY ONE HOUSE BEADS JEWELRY & KEEPSAKES?
In order to extend the vibrancy of your OHB jewelry, don't wear when showering and swimming. Avoid contact with perfume & chemicals. Never use chemical jewelry cleaners as these will do more harm than good. For light cleaning, gently polish with a soft, lint-free cloth to avoid scratching. Sterling silver, pewter, & copper will tarnish over time, so we recommend a product called Sunshine Cloths to polish those metals. Store in a cool, dry place.
HOW DO I SIZE MY CUFF BRACELET?
Our aluminum cuff bracelets should be adjusted to size the first time you wear it. They should not be pulled apart each time that you take it on and off. This will cause stress on the metal and can break over time. To properly put on your cuff, find the narrowest part of your wrist and place the opening of the cuff on the thumb side of your wrist. Slide it on while turning your arm into the bracelet until it is correctly positioned. Reverse this process to remove the cuff. If you have any questions about this process, please don't hesitate to contact us.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOLD PLATED & GOLD FILLED?
Gold plated and Gold Filled metals both use a core of base metals. Gold Plated metal has a plating essentially painted onto it. On gold filled metals, the gold layer is bonded to the base metal. The outer layer of gold on a gold filled piece will last much longer and is the next best thing to solid gold. Plating will wear off over time, OHB uses quality gold plated materials.
