What is Gold fill?
Gold fill is is made with an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating.Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It will not flake or rub off, or turn colours.

Lunarsea designs are made for salty souls and can withstand use in water with due care.
This said please always rinse your jewels in fresh water & pat dry.
Prolonged exposure to water may dull all metals even the purest of golds.
So moderation and maintenance are key.
Jewels just like clothing need to be cleaned from time to time.
Sterling Silver can be polished with a jewellery cloth.
Gold Fill with a soft toothbrush and water (I have personally used a little eco dish detergent for stubborn areas for example body oils darkening the clasp.)

If your repair is an old design and I no longer have the materials required to fix the item, I am happy to discuss a custom remake with you.

If out of warranty we suggest having the item repaired by a local jeweller.
In addition I will supply you with some store credit towards your next keepsake.
