About LeChaim

Sales 58,853
On Etsy since 2010

LeChaim Handmade Jewelry & accessory

LeChaim/L`Chaim is a single Hebrew word simply means "To life!” not to a happy life, a prosperous life, but just To Life. Life isn`t always easy, things don`t always go as expected, but no matter what difficulty life brings, no matter how hard, painful or unfair life sometimes may seem, life itself is holy and worthy of celebration. Most time, we pray for the things we don't have and forget that life itself is a blessing……

With great gratitude for life, we design and make each piece of jewelry from our hearts. Every single piece is a reflection of our inner feelings, imagination, creativity, spirituality, and state of mind. Whether you are living the happiest life one can possibly imagine or experiencing some kind of difficulties in your life, I hope the jewelries that I designed and created will bring a little joy and sweetness to your life…… :)

Thank you so much for stopping by our Etsy shop. LeChaim!

From LeChaim Team
With Love & Gratitude

How to take care of plated jewelry

All our jewelry are plated jewelry not made of solid pure gold and here are some tips on how to take care and extend the life of plated jewelry .

1. Wash your hands before putting on or taking off plated jewelry.
2. Put on plated jewelry after you’ve applied your perfume, lotion, hair spray or makeup
3. Keep plated jewelry away from water. Don’t shower, bath or swim etc while wearing your plated jewelry
4. Don’t wear your plated jewelry while working out or sweating profusely
5. Avoid rubbing plated jewelry against each other or tough surfaces.
6. Store your gold plated jewelry in a pouch or soft cloth separate from other jewelry

Why jewelry tarnishes or changes color

All jewelry tarnish over time unless it is made of pure solid gold. Jewelry tarnish is caused when the surface of the metal comes into contact with body oils, makeup, lotion, water, sweat, perfumes, hair spray, lotions etc and other external substances. Any substance that isn’t PH neutral can potentially affect your plated jewelry even one’s own body chemistry. Some people are more acidic and sweat more than others. Tarnish varies from looking slightly dull or totally black, depending on the metal and how you wear your jewelry. It’s not uncommon for chemicals perspired through the pores of the skin to cause plated jewelry to tarnish/discolor.
