Ċikka produces jewellery in 316L stainless steel. Stainless steel is resistant and most importantly hypoallergenic. Each piece is unique to the artisan craftsmanship process, and therefore differences may occur. We strive to provide the best quality, combining resistant stainless steel with the finest gold IP plating on the market.
At the same time, the longevity IP plating on jewellery primarily depends on the care and attention that is given and to the conditions the items are worn and stored in.
• All jewellery pieces should be stored individually in order to avoid abrasion caused by items rubbing against each other.
• We also suggest fastening chains when not worn, to avoid these getting tangled.
• Extreme humidity, use of perfume, deodorant, hairspray, make up, nail polish remover, lotions, oils, antibacterial soaps, shower gels, shampoos, excessive sweating, salty water, chlorine and chemicals in washing liquids can all have an impact on the plating. Although stainless steel is strong, IP plating is very delicate and can easily be discoloured or darkened if it comes across these elements. Such damage on plating is irreparable.
Cleaning your jewellery is also essential to enjoy it for longer and preserve their shine. We suggest you use a soft, non-abrasive microfiber cloth to softly clean your jewellery pieces. The use of lukewarm water is also accepted as long as the item is then fully dried with a soft cloth. Cleaners containing harsh chemicals are to be absolutely avoided due to irreparable damage.
