Are your products made of real gold and silver?

Some of our pieces consist of real gold and silver, while others are plated or have a gold or silver finish over a common base metal. Our custom grillz are available in gold plated, 925 sterling silver, 10K and 14k gold. Premade grillz are typically gold plated, rhodium plated or have a gold or silver finish -with the exception of the 10K gold and 925 silver premade grillz. Our fashion jewelry may look like real gold and silver pieces, but they are actually NOT fine jewelry. Some of our offerings may include 925 sterling silver and 10k and 14k solid gold - check the description for the full details.

Depending on the piece, costume jewelry consists of a gold or silver plating, rhodium plating, or a gold or silver tone finish that is applied to base metal. Our gold plated jewelry is made with a base metal (e.g. brass) that has a very thin layer of gold over it. When purchasing any gold plated jewelry, keep in mind that the gold plating is nothing more than a coloring (think aesthetic value) - there is virtually no value to the gold applied, irregardless if its 14k, 18k or 24K. Gold plated jewelry can look and feel like a real solid gold piece, but at a fraction of the cost to you. Shop smart!

Will your plated jewelry fade?

Gold plated jewelry can look like solid gold to the naked eye because it consists of a thin layer of actual gold over a base metal. However, unlike solid gold, over time, gold plated jewelry will fade. Same with gold tone, gold finish, rhodium plated or silver tone jewelry. This type of jewelry can be an affordable and sensible alternative to expensive fine jewelry. Depending on how often you wear it, fashion jewelry can last years. However, if you wear the jewelry on a daily basis over bare skin, work out with your jewelry, swim with it, shower with it and you don't clean the jewelry, the plating won't last very long.

The type of jewelry and how it is worn will affect how long it will last. A jewelry piece that is worn on bare skin or inside your mouth (such as grillz) will wear off quicker than one worn over clothing (such as chains). Cleaning the jewelry regularly and storing it in an airtight container is helpful to maximize the life of the jewelry. However, even with proper maintenance, all fashion jewelry eventually discolors and will show the base metal underneath. Only real gold and real silver jewelry will never fade and we do offer 10K gold, 14K gold and 925 silver custom grillz.

Will your .925 Silver & Solid 10K/14K Gold fade?

Solid gold and sterling silver will not fade, but it will tarnish over time. To keep it shiny, properly clean, dry and store your piece. After taking off your jewelry, (for grillz, rinse the piece under warm water to wash away saliva), then clean with a dry microfiber cloth before putting the piece back into an airtight container such as a zipper bag. If any tarnishing does begin to show, just clean it as soon as it appears using warm water with a few drops of mild dishwashing liquid, and dry with a soft microfiber cloth. Take care of your precious gold and .925 silver jewelry so that it can last a lifetime!

    How do I fit my pre-made grillz?

    Best Grillz Instructions

    We specialize in affordable teeth grillz that are designed to fit your average adult size mouth. All grillz come with illustrated fitting instructions and silicone molding.

    On the inside of the grillz, there are metal tabs. Those tabs hold a rubbery silicone bar in place. Think like a mouth guard for athletics. You heat that up and when you put it all in your mouth the silicone forms to your teeth, and the tabs hold the silicone in place.

    The molding bar is a silicone piece that softens in hot water and hardens at room temperature. Simply heat the grillz with the molding bar in hot water (refer to the included instructions for water temperature requirements), then place grillz and silicone molding on teeth. Let the grillz with molding bar harden as it cools down and in just minutes you got a custom fit.

    If you don't get the right fit on your first attempt, you can reheat the grillz with silicone molding to refit the grillz. Check out the grillz fitting videos below for easy step-by-step instructions.

    Fashion Jewelry Care Tips
    Costume Jewelry Maintenance
    Plated jewelry is much more delicate than pure metals. Clean the jewelry periodically with a damp cloth by wiping it gently, but not rubbing it. Do not use a dripping wet cloth. Use a clean towel to dry. Do not use any cleaning solvents to clean any plated jewelry. The plating can fade quickly if you use chemicals. Grillz should be rinsed under cold water and dried with a soft cloth after each use and stored. Do not eat, drink, smoke or brush your teeth with the grillz on.

    Keep the jewelry away from chemicals. Many common household chemicals such as hair spray, cologne, perfume and skin care products will damage and discolor the plating.

    Plated jewelry is especially sensitive to moisture. Do not wear plated jewelry when showering, swimming, working out, playing sports or are engaged in any strenuous physical activity that will cause you to sweat. In the event of any contact with moisture, immediately dry the jewelry with a soft cloth.

    When not in use, store your fashion jewelry in an sealed container such as a plastic container with a tight lid or an airtight zip baggie. The air can oxidize the finish and tarnish the fashion jewelry if exposed for extended periods.

    Certain medications, such as blood pressure and diabetes, can cause the plating to fade quicker, especially with rose gold plated jewelry.

    Personal PH Level
    Depending on diet, some people are more acidic than others. Chemicals perspired through the pores can cause the fashion jewelry to turn and tarnish. Some people sweat more than others, therefore premature fading can occur with these certain individuals.
