all nishi jewelry pieces are made by hand in new york city. due to their hand made nature of each piece, there is a unique quality to each piece and no piece is the same.
nishi jewelry uses the following metals to fabricate jewelry:
*sterling silver – 92.5 fine silver and copper alloy
*18k yellow and 18k pink gold vermeil – 18k gold over sterling silver
*14k, 18k gold and platinum for custom pieces
to keep your jewelry in the best condition when not wearing the jewelry we recommend keeping the jewelry in an air tight environment, away from direct sunlight and hot environments.
it is natural for sterling silver to tarnish from exposure to air and daily wear. to keep your pieces in the best condition we recommend using jewelry cleaners, which can easily be purchased at your local drug store. it is also recommended to use a soft tooth brush and warm water to gently brush the jewelry to restore its luster. please only use this treatment on the metal and avoid exposing it to gemstones
with gold vermeil pieces we recommend removing the jewelry before taking a shower or swimming in the ocean/pool. sea water and chlorine along with sun exposure can damage the piece. please also avoid spraying perfume directly on the piece, as the alcohol in perfume can wear away the plating over time.
