MvdT designs are handmade of brass, sterling 925 silver or gold. Pure metals are used out of a conscious, sustainable perspective. Brass is a nickel free alloy of copper and zinc. It has been used for centuries as a semi-precious alternative to gold.
Every piece will tarnish and age differently as it is exposed to a range of factors. Areas with a higher level of humidity will see a more rapid transformation in comparison to those that are colder and drier. Depending on the pH level of your skin the metals can shine or oxidize. In some cases the oxidation can leave a mark on your skin.
To return your jewel into its original raw brass or silver color use the magic care set. Please refer to the instructions below.
Solid gold is handmade on demand in the atelier in the Netherlands. All gold from The Netherlands comes from recycled sources.
