I believe that you already have enough to worry about in your day, taking care of your jewelry shouldn't be one of them.
We believe Bask jewelry should be able to put up with the unexpected just like you.
Most Bask pieces use stainless steel as the base metal which is PVD plated with 14k or 18k gold.
Why Stainless Steel
It is an affordable material, water-resistant, will not tarnish or turn your skin green. Makes it a great choice for everyday jewelry.
Benefits of Stainless Steel:
Low maintenance - corrosion-free, tarnish-free
Comfort - light metal. Hypoallergenic so great for sensitive skin
Value - affordable. But has a similar look to platinum
Eco-friendly - In the production process, the amount of energy used and waste produced is dramatically less than in the production of all other metals for jewelry. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable
Why PVD plating
Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is an environmentally friendly vacuum coating process that actually permeates and bonds with the base metal. This provides a brilliant finish and an extremely tough, durable, long-lasting coating which is also suitable for sensitive skin.
The PVD coating allows Bask jewelry to be waterproof, tarnish, sweat, and regular wear resistant compared to standard gold plating. The PVD coating will stay longer, even when scratched, while a gold-plated product when scratched will reveal the base material. Over time plated jewelry will naturally fade.(Gold plated jewelry or the PVD jewelry…it isn’t clear which)
To extend the life of the plating, try to avoid scratching the surface of Bask jewelry and keep it away from perfumes and lotions. To clean Bask jewelry, gently wash with water and soap, and pat dry with a soft cotton cloth.
