Mañana will not offer any refund or exchange due to wear and tear or the discoluration of your jewellery.
All jewellery unless stated otherwise, is gold plated. We have different types of base metals (brass, stainless steel and sterling silver) and this can affect the longevity of the plating and colour. It is important to remember that all plated jewels will turn colour and fade to expose the base metal. The time it takes to turn is totally dependent on the wear, storage and the way the metals interact with your skin.
There are other factors that affect the inevitable colour change. The largest factors are air and the oils on your skin. We suggest you keep your jewellery in an air tight plastic bag and whilst wearing, away from water, sweat, soap, perfume, and lotions.
If you have previously reacted to brass, stainless steel it or sterling silver we strongly advise you not to purchase for your safety and rather look 9ct gold options.
Sterling silver with gold plating
The base metal of these pieces are sterling silver. A thin gold plating is applied through a method called vacuum plating. This plating will fade with wear and tear but will last longer than non gold plated.
Stainless steel with gold plating
The base metal of these pieces are stainless steel which is the most durable option. The gold plating will fade with wear and tear but tends to be the most resistant to water and will last longer than non gold plated.
Brass with gold plating
Also resistant to water and durable with a far longer life span than non plated jewels.
We ultimately don't suggest getting your jewels wet in an effort to prolong its life span and keep them looking shiny and new.
