Fibi & Co.'s jewelry pieces are made of stainless steel coated with either 14K or 18K Gold through a process called PVD coatingPhysical Vapor Deposition, or PVD, is a vacuum coating process that produces a brilliant decorative and functional finish. PVD utilizes a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating. Famous luxury brands turn to this process in order to achieve gorgeous finishes on everything from watches to bags. Incredibly resistant against corrosion and wear, the PVD coating allows our pieces to be waterproof and tarnish-resistant - even in adverse conditions like rain or sweat. However, since it’s not made of pure gold, gold plated jewelry will not last forever.

Here are tips and tricks that will make your jewelry last as long as possible:

  • As much as possible, avoid direct contact with perfume, body lotion, or makeup
  • For safety purposes, remove jewelry before going to bed
  • Whilst waterproof, it is still recommended to remove jewelry when swimming, bathing, and exercising
  • Avoid harsh chemicals such as household cleaning supplies
  • If possible, regularly clean with a jewelry care cloth
  • Store your jewelry in its original pouch to prevent scratching and tangling
  • If your jewelry does come into contact with any of the above products, give it a gentle clean with warm soapy water and wipe away any residue, then dry it. Make sure to use mild soap. Do not leave any visible substance on your jewelry as it may cause damage and discoloration
