  • MADE TO ORDER

All our pieces are made to order, this takes time! Depending on the design and the complexity of your piece, it may take up to 4 weeks to be constructed and further to be delivered depending on your location (outside of Europe). We will do our utmost to have your parcels made and delivered as soon as possible, in some cases your order may arrive within a 2 week period depending on our suppliers. We aim to be environmentally responsible with our sourcing and this, therefore, means we buy our metal and gems in smaller quantities. 

If you have any other issues concerning your item, please email us - we'll do our best to respond asap.

 

  •  JEWELLERY CARE

Metals used:
925 Sterling Silver
Gold Vermeil (approx. over 2.5 microns of thick gold plated onto Sterling Silver- usually 18ct unless otherwise stated).
Solid Brass (usually plated with 18ct/24ct gold or pure platinum).
Environmental Brass (nickle free brass plated in 18ct gold).
High grade Stainless Steel (plated or coloured).

Every metal is plated to be long lasting and corrosion resistant, but to ensure the best for your purchase - we recommend that you avoid direct contact with water, intense heat, rough surfaces, cologne, lotions, sprays and perfumes. Please avoid chemical cleaners - use soft polishing cloths and gently wipe your jewellery clean. When not in use, store your pieces away in the boxes provided.

Plated metals, however, do wear away and tarnish over time, careful product care and wear will ensure the maximum longevity of each piece.

What metals turn your skin green? Most of them do. Yes, even gold and silver. This sometimes has to do with body chemistry - if you're low on iron or your PH is too acidic (hence when acidic sweat comes into contact with various metals) it's likely to cause a chemical reaction such as 'greening' or 'blackening' of the skin. Solid Gold usually has to be above 14ct's (without copper/alloy) to avoid 'greening'. 

How can I avoid this? By following the care instructions... In some cases, a PVD coating can be applied to the metal - we handmake our pieces in small batches to be more environmentally responsible vs ordering cheaper batches from wholesale factories and so a PVD coating isn't something that we currently offer.

Adorn 42 20 is not responsible for the maintenance or improper care of your jewellery.

 

  • ALLERGIES

Some of our chains can contain traces of nickel (this is to prevent corrosion when exposed to humidity/water and hardening). Our environmental brass pieces are all nickel-free and will be marked as so for your convenience. 

We advise that if you suffer from any serious allergies to fashion/costume jewellery that you avoid purchasing.

Adorn 42 20 are not responsible for irresponsible purchases regarding allergies.

 

  • PACKAGING
