MATERIALS + CARE
Every Hydez piece is crafted with the highest quality precious metals and curated to be interchangeably worn and layered with each other. We have aspired to create jewelry with authentic quality in an effort to diminish disposable products and their long term effects on the environment. We source our materials from the Diamond District of New York City, to ensure the highest quality craftsmanship so your pieces are loved for years to come.
Sterling Silver: Silver with a fineness of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Sterling silver is known for its durability, hardness and high shine.
14K Gold-filled: A thick gold layer (100 times more gold than gold plating) is bonded to an inner core of jeweler’s brass. Gold filled with 1/20th 14 karat gold, means the gold content is 5% 14 karat gold by weight. With care, 14K Gold-filled could last a lifetime without showing signs of wear.
18K Gold Vermeil: 3 microns of 18K Gold over Sterling Silver. Vermeil is far more durable to wear than traditional gold-plating due to standards required by the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations.
To ensure the longevity of your jewelry, we recommend avoiding contact with beauty products, lotions and other chemicals and removing your jewelry before bathing, swimming, sleeping, and exercising. Store jewelry in an airtight plastic bag or Hydez jewelry bag.
To clean your jewelry, gently wipe with a very soft jewelry cleaning cloth and do not use any jewelry polishing cleaners, dips or products.
