Jewelry Materials & Care


Our jewelry is crafted with highly durable Stainless Steel or 925 Sterling Silver with 18k PVD Gold Plating. The PVD coating increases the lifespan of our jewelry, making it waterproof and longer lasting.

What is PVD Coating? It’s a cutting-edge, eco-friendly process that bonds with the base metal at the molecular level. It is much more durable and longer lasting than regular gold plating. This is a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) process and the jewelry is plated with at least 0.1 micron of 18k Gold.

Gold plating over stainless steel offers superior tarnish resistance. Why is this? Stainless steel is known for its exceptional corrosion resistance. When gold is electroplated onto stainless steel, the result is a product that combines the elegance of gold with the durability of stainless steel. The stainless steel base provides a strong and stable foundation, preventing the gold layer from reacting with external elements like moisture, air, or chemicals, which can cause tarnishing in other materials. 


  • Use a jewelry cloth to clean off everyday oils
  • Avoid contact with chemicals such as lotions & perfumes
  • Rinse your pieces with cold water especially after prolonged exposure to chlorinated or salt water and dry with a soft cloth
  • Keep jewelry stored in your Isola pouch

If you wear our jewelry every day in the shower for example, then you'll find that the color will not fade for at least six months. We do however recommend removing your jewelry when you shower and keeping it away from water and lotion only to ensure that the color of the plating does not fade over time. It is fashion jewelry and not solid gold, therefor the color can fade over time.
