Poshlocket jewelry is electroplated with brass, gold, rhodium, rose gold, and gunmetal finish. Some are combinations of two or more of the above listed. Most of our items are handcrafted and/or hand-assembled, so each individual pieces may vary slightly in size, color, and dimensions. Please remember that this is costume/fashion jewelry. Keep your jewelry away from any kind of moisture, for moisture may cause tarnishing. Do not use harsh jewelry cleaners that contain chemicals to clean the jewelry. Use a natural cleaner (we recommend wiping with a soft cloth) and do not leave soaking in water. We advise that you do not spray your perfume or hairspray on yourself after the jewelry has been put on. Hairspray and perfume can cause damage to even fine jewelry. Jewelry made of lucite or inclusive of lucite pieces should be handled with extra care, for it is more delicate. Jewelry that includes crystals and cubic stones should avoid collision and improper use to avoid any damage or falling off of crystals and stones. Do not expose leather to water and any kind of non-leather cleaning liquid. Store all jewelry in a dry place. If the jewelry proves to be defective in workmanship under considerable "normal" usage within 45 days of original date of purchase, we will provide a replacement item.
