AMEN Jewelry: Warranty

Thank you for purchasing a piece of Amen jewelry. Below is information on the materials used to make Amen jewelry, its legal warranty.

Amen jewelry is made in Italy in compliance with Leg. Decree no. 206/2005, and in China. It is imported into the Philippines (PH) by ADAM Hermanos Ventures Inc. with registered office at Six/NEO Building, 26th street corner 5th ave., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, VAT/TIN no. 008-830-443-000. Amen jewelry is made using fine materials like Sterling Silver, 14k and 18k Gold, 316 Steel and Bronze. It contains no cadmium or lead. It may have nickel release rates in compliance with EC Regulation 1907/2012 and standard EN 1811:2011.

Sterling Silver is an alloy consisting primarily of Silver with the addition of other metals (925 parts of Pure Silver out of 1 000). Jewelry created with this Silver alloy is stamped with the number 925.

Jewelry produced using this alloy may also be rhodium-plated or burnished. To burnish jewelry, the surface is given a special treatment that oxidizes the metal, creating the desired burnished effect. This oxidation may disappear over time, and the speed of this process depends on how the jewelry is used. Sweat, acidic skin PH, perfumes, chlorine, silver polishes and creams may reduce burnishing. This loss of the intensity of the burnished finish is considered normal and not a defect, so it is not covered by the warranty. Rhodium plating is applied through a galvanic bath that adds a coating of rhodium to silver to make it brighter and whiter. Like burnishing, rhodium plating can lose its shine, allowing the silver to return to its natural color. Again, this is not considered a defect but a natural process of rhodium wear, and is not covered by the warranty. For the reasons mentioned above, Sterling silver, in particular, tends to oxidize over time. Therefore, oxidation is not a defect and is not covered by the warranty.

Rosé and yellow jewelry is made of Sterling Silver that is plated with 18k gold. Remember that plating can be lost over time due to acidic skin pH, salt, perfumes, creams, sulfur and hairspray, as well as normal use. Therefore, it is not considered a defect and is not covered by the warranty.

The leather used to make Amen jewelry is absolutely natural, strictly vegetable-tanned and is treated with products complying with current European regulation (REACH Regulation). Because the leather is natural, it may stretch and loosen over time. Color and thickness variations may also appear. We strongly advise that you avoid getting the leather wet with water or any other liquid that may cause damage or discoloration.

Amen jewelry may include natural stones, precious stones, semi-precious stones, hard stones, high-quality synthetic stones, cultured pearls, enameled faux pearls and mother of pearl.
