MATERIAL & CARE GUIDE
We have put together some information about what our collections are made of and how to take care of your pieces to get the most out of them. All Ella Palm jewellery is carefully handcrafted from the finest tarnish resistant precious metals and is sensitive skin friendly.
Our material of choice - beauty, durability and affordability in one. Made with a thick layer of real 14k karat gold mechanically bonded with heat and pressure over high quality jeweller's brass.
Since gold-filled is mechanically bonded onto the base metal instead of plated, the gold doesn't fade with wear. Gold-filled is the closest alternative to solid gold and has up to 100x more gold than gold plated and gold vermeil.
Gold-filled is tarnish resistant and perfect for everyday wear; you can go to the gym, shower, and sleep in it. It’s also hypoallergenic, so it’s great for people who have sensitive skin.
14k gold-filled offers a subtle, soft gold tone which we find compliments all skin types and works exquisitely alongside our freshwater pearl and gemstone designs.

18K GOLD PLATED
Our gold plated designs use a technique of a luxurious coating of 18k gold plated onto a recylced sterling silver or brass base.
An affordable option when you’re looking for a pair of everyday hoops or a gift that doesn’t break the bank. We use high quality gold plating for all our plated designs to ensure long lasting wear.

9K SOLID GOLD
We offer a selection of 9k solid gold designs for those that are looking for affordable, minimal timeless heirloom pieces that will last a lifetime.
Just like Gold-filled, solid gold is tarnish resistant and perfect for everyday wear; you can go to the gym, shower, and sleep in it. It’s also hypoallergenic, so it’s great for people who have sensitive skin.

CARING FOR YOUR JEWELLERY
To keep your pieces shining bright for years to come we recommend the below for all Ella Palm designs.
Ella palm jewellery is handmade with tarnish resistant precious metals. Our jewellery is safe to get wet but we recommend avoiding contact with soaps, sun creams, perfumes, make up and skin care products and this can cause damage to pearls, gemstones and precious metals.
Remove your jewellery before doing any practical activities or any type of work out.
Avoid wearing your jewellery when using household cleaners or bleach, as some chemicals can react with metals.
Do not use chemicals to clean your jewellery as this may damage or discolour the metal.
To maintain shine, jewellery can be polished with a microfibre cloth when required.
To remove stubborn dirt we recommend using an old soft toothbrush and warm mild soapy water.
Store pieces separately in soft, padded compartments or pouches, this will prevent scratches and tangling of chains.
Keep jewellery away from extreme temperatures, humidity and direct sunlight as these can all cause discolouration and increase tarnishing.
