Atelier Té’s jewelry is made of .925 sterling silver.
The jewelry has been treated against tarnishing: These surface treatments will fade over time because of contact with clothes, hard surfaces, sweat, perfume, hairspray, air pollution and others.
Frequent wear may speed up this process, especially on items like rings and bracelets, which have more frequent contact with surfaces.
Gold plated pieces are coated with a standard 3 micron layers to build up thickness. Plating should last depending on the frequency the jewelry is worn.
Rings wear the quickest, because they get touched/banged constantly, while earrings can last much longer.
