What is PVD? Physical Vapour Deposition - this is a high end coating process in which a layer of 18k Gold is applied using a vacuum coating technique, creating a beautiful finish to a base metal. Stainless Steel is the most hypoallergenic base metal for jewellery.
PVD coated jewellery withstands most daily activities without sustaining corrosion and scratches, as the high quality coating resists tarnishing and continues to look great with minimal maintenance.
PVD 18k Gold plating is usually between 1-2 microns thick, making it extremely durable and long lasting, where as standard 14k or 18k gold plating is usually less than 0.5 microns.

'Slow Ocean' Jewellery Care
Our ‘Slow Ocean’ jewellery is made to be loved and worn every day. To prolong the life of your jewellery we suggest the following;
Avoid swimming in your jewellery pieces. It is crucial to be cautious around water, especially saltwater, as stainless steel can occasionally rust over time when exposed to such environments.
Avoid contact with all cosmetics, lotions, perfumes and remove your jewellery before sleeping, exercising, or engaging in physical tasks to prevent accidental damage.
Look after your pearls, shells and gemstones as these are delicate and may chip. Since most pearls and gemstones are quite delicate, hot water, harsh chemicals and cleaners should be avoided at all times.
Gold & Silver Jewellery Care
Our Gold & Silver jewellery is made to be loved and worn everyday. To prolong the life of your jewellery, we suggest the following;
We highly recommend removing all jewellery before swimming, showering and exercising. Avoid contact with all cosmetics, lotions and perfumes. These all may effect the lifespan of your jewellery.
Gold plated jewellery is not solid gold and will fade over time. When not wearing your jewels, please place them in a jewellery box. The way they are looked after can determine how well the gold plating will last.
We hope you love your jewellery as much as we do.
