Materials

The jewellery of Pernille Corydon is made of pure sterling recycled silver with a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. Some products have semi-precious stones added. In order to protect our customers the quality of our precious metals are tested by the Danish Assay Office at a regular basis. We care about the health of our customers and our products contain no nickel.

Design in two different colors are available - gold-plated and recycled silver.

Gold-plated and Recycled Silver

Our gold-plated jewellery consists of sterling recycled silver with a fine layer of gold of at least 18 carats. Our silver jewellery consists of recycled sterling silver with a natural untreated surface.

 

The last letters of each product number indicates the color. (e.g. r-490-gp is the product number of our Brick Ring with a gold plated surface).

 

gp = gold plated
s = silver

How to care for your jewellery

We want you to enjoy your Pernille Corydon jewellery for many years to come. We have made this guide on how to care for your jewellery, thereby prolonging the life of your jewellery.

 

How to store your jewellery

All our jewellery is made with certified recycled silver and gold plated certified recycled silver. The jewellery will eventually wear down, the plating will wear off, and the colour will fade, turn dark, and start to tarnish. This is unavoidable, since precious metals and plating react with the oxygen in the air. To reduce this process, you should store your jewellery in an airtight bag or a lined jewellery box. Try to keep the jewellery apart when storing it to prevent scratching.

 

What to avoid

Avoid wearing jewellery when showering, washing your hands, sunbathing, cleaning, gardening, performing sports activities etc. Protect your jewellery from sharp blows, scratching, sunlight, and extreme heat or cold.

 

Do not let your jewellery come into contact with lotions, hand sanitiser, soap, perfume, hairspray, cosmetics, detergents, and other chemicals. A good tip is to put on your jewellery last, as well as to remove your rings when washing your hands etc.

 

Other influences

A range of individual factors play a role regarding the durability of your jewellery – including how often the jewellery is worn. The body’s natural pH, warmth, sweat, and acid can also affect durability.

 

Important: Always keep jewellery out of reach of small children.

When jewellery discolours the skin

Some will experience that silver jewellery can stain or discolour the area of the skin that the jewellery comes into contact with. This often happens due to the body’s natural pH, warmth, and perspiration. The body excretes salts and sulphur, which can settle in a ring’s fine pores, causing staining of the fingers. Some people excrete more than others, and therefore may experience a higher degree of discolouration.

 

In some cases, the cause of such discolouration is if you are working with fluids and the like. that contain salts and that come into contact with the skin and/or the ring.

 

Another cause could be the consumption of foods high in sulphur, such as eggs, vinegar, and lemon. If you are taking any medication or dietary supplements that emit through the skin, this could have the same effect as explained above.

 

If you are going through a period where your body is out of balance, this could also entail that the body perspires more than usually. This can be a contributing factor as to why a piece of jewellery suddenly begins to stain the skin.

 

Often, the explanation can be found in the contact with lotions, hand sanitiser, soap, perfume, hairspray, cosmetics, detergents, and other chemicals that can have an adverse effect on the durability of your jewellery and cause the jewellery to stain your skin.
