All packages ordered on delika.eu are shipped by our partner bpost.

care and maintenance
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO STORE MY JEWELLERY?
We recommend storing your jewellery in a closed box or plastic bag. Silver will tarnish when left out exposed to air. Storing in a plastic bag will help keep it from tarnishing. Even gold-plated items can get slightly darker in colour if just sitting out exposed to air so we recommend storing them in closed jewellery box or bag.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO TAKE CARE OF MY JEWELLERY?
Every piece of jewellery is handmade and delicate. To enjoy your jewellery for a long time, please use the appropriate care. The most important step you can take to insure a long lasting gold finish is to avoid direct contact with water (salt or fresh), excessive perspiration, and chemicals such as chlorine, sulphur, perfume, detergent and lotion. Excessive light, heat or moisture will deteriorate the quality of plating on the metal. Exposing plated jewellery to prolonged periods of water will cause the plating to disintegrate, peel off, and or lose its matte finish. Delika’s collections primarily consist of jewellery made of gold plated brass or gold vermeil, which are pieces made from brass or sterling silver and dipped in gold. We also sell sterling silver and gold-filled jewellery.
All of our jewellery can be cleaned in the same manner. We recommend using a mild soap, water and a soft cloth. Rinse with clean water and pat dry. Jewellery cleaners can be too harsh and may contain abrasives. Excessive polishing will rub off the plating and is not recommended. Note that some gemstones do not stand the force of cleaning agents, polishing cloths or ultrasonic cleaners. Make sure any cleaners you use are safe for use on pearls or gemstones.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GOLD-PLATED, STERLING SILVER, VERMEIL, AND GOLD-FILLED? WHAT DOES KARAT MEAN?
• Gold-plated: A base metal such as steel or brass is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution, with a lump of solid gold. When an electric current is applied, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the metal.
• Sterling silver: is a mixture of pure silver and some other metal, usually copper. The resulting alloy gives the silver strength. The standard is at least 92.5% silver.
• Vermeil: is sterling silver that has been gold-plated. The difference between vermeil, and gold-filled, is in the thickness of the gold and the base metal used. In vermeil, the base is sterling silver.
• Gold-filled: also called rolled-gold. These jewellery items are not actually filled with gold. They are made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical bonding process. Effectively a thick coat of gold: the gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total weight.
• Gold Purity – Karats: The karat is a very old measure of how much gold is in a gold-blend. A measure of 1 Karat is where there is 1 part of pure gold and 23 parts of metal alloy - or 4% gold. So 24K is 100% pure gold. 9K is 37%, 14K is 58%, 18K is 75%.
Gold jewelry reacts with chlorine. Never take your gold jewelry into a pool or spa.
