Additional policies and FAQs
GBReserve/ Gaudy Baubles handcrafted jewelry:

Each custom made piece is hand fabricated out of sterling silver or 14K Yellow gold. The highly polished finish is achieved using a polishing lathe which spins at a very high speed. To preserve the depth and “bright cut” of the engraving, all polishing is done prior to engraving.


About sterling silver:
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper. Pure fine silver is a very soft metal, and is not often used for jewelry applications. Copper is added to increase the silver’s hardness and durability.

Sterling silver is a relatively soft metal and susceptibility to scratching is inherent to the nature of sterling silver.

About 14K Yellow Gold:
14K Yellow Gold is an alloy of 58% fine gold and 42% proprietary blend of silver and copper. Pure fine gold is a relatively soft metal. Copper is added to increase the gold's hardness and durability. Silver is added to affect the color.

Why sterling silver and gold alloys tarnish:
The copper in sterling silver and gold alloys make them susceptible to tarnish. Over time the alloys reacts to the sulfur, oxygen, and moisture in the air which causes oxidation to occur on the surface of the metal in the form of tarnish.



Cleaning your jewelry to prevent tarnishing:
For a quick cleaning, wash your jewelry periodically with a mild dish soap and warm water to prevent tarnishing. Rinse jewelry well and pat dry completely with a soft 100% cotton cloth before storing in an airtight container or ziplock bag. Do not use any type of brush to clean, as it may be too abrasive.

Do not clean your jewelry with toothpaste and a toothbrush as this is too abrasive and will scratch the metal. Avoid paste cleaners, as they may also be too abrasive. Avoid “dip” cleaning solutions even though they may say that they are for jewelry, as they may cause discoloration.



Preventing tarnishing:
1) Wear your jewelry. Bodily oils help prevent tarnishing so jewelry that is worn often won’t have to be cleaned as often. Wearing and handling will slow the oxidation process and keep your jewelry polished, shiny and beautiful. It will eventually develop a beautiful patina.

2) Avoid contact with chemicals such as hairspray, make-up, perfume, deodorant, body lotion, bleach, etc, as well as acidic foods.

3) Do not wear jewelry in the shower, swimming pool or hot tub. Humidity and chemicals in the water can speed up the oxidation process that produces tarnish.

4) After taking off jewelry, clean with a mild dish soap and warm water. Rinse well and pat dry with a soft 100% cotton cloth prior to storing.



Storing correctly to minimize tarnish and scratches:
1) Store clean, dry jewelry in an airtight container, like a ziplock bag, along with an “anti-tarnish strip” (like the 3M Anti-Tarnish tab provided) to help prevent tarnish.

2) Store your jewelry separately to prevent scratching and marring from contact with other items. Avoid rubbing against harder items.

3) Do not leave jewelry in the bathroom. Humidity can speed up the oxidation process that produces tarnish.

4) Avoid storing your jewelry directly on wood surfaces, because wood usually contains acids that can mar the finish.


Privacy:
Your information will not be shared.

All payment transactions are completed through Paypal's secure payment gateway. No financial Information is collected or stored within this shop.
