A really lovely and cheerful seller, however my hairpin was initially lost in the mail (tracking showed only that a label had been generated) and when one finally arrived I found the sticks far too thick and blunt to get into my hair without tearing it. Communication tended to take a while with this seller and overall everything moved quite slowly.

Additional policies and FAQs
JEWELRY CARE
Certain metals will naturally age and patina over time. All pieces arrive wrapped in white anti-tarnish paper and on our CN cardstock. We recommend storing your piece in an airtight bag with the anti-tarnish paper when not wearing them. If you're wondering about jewelry care for your Christina Nicole pieces, we recommend the following:


GOLD + GOLD FILL
Gold and gold-fill jewelry will not tarnish or turn your skin unless you have an allergy to gold. Over time, wear and tear might burnish your piece, leaving it shiny or a different finish than when it arrived. If you'd like to return the piece to it's original finish, simply use a gently polishing cloth and wash with cool water and baking soda.


BRONZE + BRASS *
Bronze + brass are copper alloys, meaning the metal will naturally patina and darken with age. Water and heat hasten the formation of patina on the metal so showering or swimming in your piece will almost immediately discolor it. Slight discoloration of the skin may happen from time to time. All skin types are different so variance of patina's will depend on the skin type. We personally embrace the beautiful aging process of bronze + brass, but if you'd like to return the piece to it's original finish, simply use a 'Sunshine' polishing cloth or any traditional brass/bronze cleaners. Brass + bronze will always tarnish due to the mineral makeup, caring for your piece well by not wearing it in water or with lotions and perfumes will help maintain it's original finish.
*Bronze/Brass pieces purchased prior to 1/1/16 are eligible for 1 complimentary cleaning service (shipping is buyers responsibility). For details: Christina [!at] ChristinaNicole.com with subject: 'Complimentary Cleaning", please include your order number.


STERLING SILVER
When silver is not worn regularly, it will darken and tarnish. We recommend regular wear and keeping the piece out of water to avoid this. To return pieces to their original finish, buff with a polishing cloth and keep stored in an airtight bags.


*Do not use baking soda or chemicals of any sort on stones, ESPECIALLY turquoise as it's a softer stone.
