Each piece ofLittle Glamjewelry is hand-finished with high-quality materials and designed ideally for everyday wear. Most of our jewelry pieces are made from 925 sterling silver, plated with 14k yellow gold or 14k rose gold, or solid gold adorned with natural gemstones. With proper care and maintenance, your jewelry can last for a lifetime or beyond.
925 Sterling Silver
925 sterling silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Unlike pure silver, which is quite soft and difficult to shape properly, sterling silver is harder and more suitable for jewelry making.
Gold-plated Sterling Silver
Our gold-plated sterling silver jewelry is coated with at least 3 layers of 14K gold or rose gold on the top of a sterling silver base, which makes our delicate jewelry more durable and gives it that long-lasting color and shine.
Pure gold (24k) is too soft to work with. To make it more structurally sound and easier to work with, alloys are added. The combination of pure gold and alloys create solid gold (10k and 14k gold available at Little Glam) that makes your active life easier as this metal is less prone to scratching and long-lasting!
A gemstone is not just a piece of mineral crystal, each type has its own unique characteristics, providing different benefits and properties to your life. We offer jewelry with natural gemstones in different shades of the colors and sizes, highly valued for their beauty, longevity and rarity.
Care Tips for Natural Gemstones
• To maintain the beauty and sparkle of your natural gemstones and gem-studded jewelry, scrub them gently using a soft-bristled brush and warm water mixed with a few drops of detergent-free soap, then rinse them in a bowl of warm water in avoid taking a risk of losing any gems, them dry them with a soft microfiber cloth.
• Keep your gem-studded jewelry away from chemicals, not only strong acid chemicals but even things you use every day including perfumes, hairsprays, cosmetics, lotions, etc.
• As not all the natural gems have the same degree of hardness, store your gem-studded jewelry separately in a dark and dry place, it is best to put in an airtight container with fabric lining when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure.
Remove your silver jewelry before washing hands, swimming or showering. Although pure water does not damage sterling silver, most water we come into contact may contain chemicals that cause oxidation on sterling silver.
Remove jewelry when putting on makeup, applying lotion, perfumes or hair care products as chemicals damage jewelry. Put on the jewelry last when getting dressed.
Remove jewelry when exercising, or any other demanding physical work, as sweating causes the silver jewelry to tarnish.
Don’t Sleep with Jewelry
Jewelry is delicate, remove the jewelry before sleeping.
Use a soft dry microfiber cloth to buff your jewelry without scratching after every use. To remove dust and body oil, mix warm water with a few drops of detergent-free soap, soap it in for a minute and scrub it gently with a soft-bristled brush, then rinse it with warm water and dry it with a soft microfiber cloth. To clean tarnished sterling silver jewelry, polish gently with a silver cloth. Do not use chemical cleaners to clean gold plated jewelry, as it is likely to remove the gold plating.
Store your silver jewelry in a dark and dry place when not worn to protect them from the elements of daily exposure. Put sterling silver jewelry in an airtight container such as an airtight jewelry box, tarnish-resistant pouch or plastic zip lock bag to slow down tarnishing.
