Additional policies and FAQs
“The Ancient Mystique of Solderless Jewelry”
Jewelry made without solder dates back 3,000 years to the Egyptians and Phoenicians. These peoples developed natural methods of shaping objects and fitting them together so that they would last for ages. This is evidenced by the pyramids, sphinx, and other timeless treasures.

Like those ancient artifacts, this jewelry is hand-crafted using techniques that originated in Egypt. Each piece is artistically shaped, carefully fitted, and fastened together without any soldering, gluing, or melting of metal.

Simple to elaborate, ancient to modern, this jewelry remains as fascinating as it is beautiful.

Most bracelets are offered in standard sizes with variations available. Please let me know if the size you prefer needs to be smaller or larger than average.

Most of the items created by MilburnDesign are totally original. Additional pieces represent my artistic interpretation of more standardized concepts. To reduce costs and operate efficiently, some of the more popular designs are produced in sets of nearly identical pieces. I guarantee that the photographs truly represent each item. Please keep in mind that all designs, products, photos and text are protected by copyrights.

Wholesale purchases are encouraged for qualified accounts and orders of sufficient quantities.

What others have said about my jewelry:
“The order was exactly what I wanted. I especially enjoy sharing your jewelry with others, and they really like it.” - B. Ligotti, frequent buyer, Eastpointe, MI

“I love it! Favorable comments seem to always come my way when I wear the jewelry you made for me. Many thanks.” - J. A. Frankel, customer, and store manager

Jewelry Materials
14 Karat Gold Filled: Think of 14 KGF as a tube or pipe of actual 14 Karat Gold that has been Filled with a less expensive base metal such as brass. The relatively thick outer layer of gold gives it the look, feel, and wear-ability of 14 K Gold without such a high price. By law, 14 KGF material must be at least 5% gold by weight. By sharp contrast, gold-plated material has no legal requirements. Gold-plating can be a microscopically thin coating and can flake off like spray paint, which is why I never make anything gold-plated.

Silver is a naturally occurring precious metal. In its purest form (like pure gold) it is too soft to be used for practical purposes such as in jewelry. To make it more functional, some percentage of another metal, usually copper, is mixed in with pure silver. A combination of metals such as this is called an “alloy”.

Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver, with the other 7.5% being comprised of other metals, mostly copper.

Argentium Sterling Silver is 93% pure silver, but a portion of the remaining 7% of metal is “germanium”, instead of all copper. Argentium silver can eventually oxidize (turn darker) like regular Sterling, but the reduced amount of copper it contains significantly reduces the rate of oxidation. Argentium Sterling costs a little bit more, but it remains bright and shiny up to 4 times longer than regular Sterling.

Copper used by MilburnDesign is 99.9% pure copper. Copper is a major component of many popular metal alloys, such as brass and nickel. Smaller portions of copper are frequently used in silver and gold too. As copper is exposed to normal air, it oxidizes. (Read below about “patina”.) When copper jewelry is worn next to the skin, such as a bracelet, it frequently turns skin green at the point of contact. The green color is harmless and washes off easily. Some believe this metal, and the reaction with the skin, produces a chemical which naturally reduces the effects of joint pain.

Brass is a metal alloy which is made of 85% copper and 15% zinc. Since it contains a large percentage of copper, it shares many of the same characteristics. It is sometimes referred to as Jeweler’s Bronze or Merlin’s Gold, but it does not contain any gold.

Nickel Alloy is 65% copper, 17% zinc, and 18% nickel. It has a silvery gray color, which gives it an appearance similar to stainless steel. It is commonly called ‘nickel silver’ or ‘German silver’, but it contains no silver.

Patina is a change in the surface characteristics of metal that occurs due to exposure to oxygen or other elements. Copper develops a patina ranging from brown to green. Silver can darken to black. Patina can develop naturally over time, or the effect can be accelerated if desired.

Some people prefer jewelry that remains bright and shiny. Others appreciate the added character displayed by a piece that has developed some patina. Copper or silver that is worn frequently will typically maintain its shine on the outer portions of the surface. If there are indentions, engraving, or other details within the surface, those areas will normally turn darker due to oxidation. The increased contrast between the shiny vs. oxidized areas can add significant interest and appeal to a piece of jewelry.

Polishing / Cleaning
Most metal jewelry can be gently cleaned with a soft cloth or an old toothbrush and a mild, non-abrasive soap. Removing a significant amount of tarnish may require a more aggressive method of cleaning, ranging from using a special polishing cloth to a mild acid dip. If the piece of jewelry is made of more than one type of metal (like 14 KGF and Sterling together) or contains a gemstone (especially like pearl, opal, or cameo) a local jewelry professional should be consulted.
