14K Gold-filled: * Gold fill is permanent layers of gold pressure bonded to another metal, usually brass or copper. It is hundreds of times thicker than “gold-plated”, more valuable, and will not flake off, rub off, or turn colors! It will last as long as 14K gold! * Anyone who can wear gold can also wear gold-filled without worries of an allergic reaction. * Use polishing cloths to shine up your beautiful gold-filled jewelry. Please do not use chemical cleaners, as they will remove the oxidization that darkens your lettering.
Rose Gold-filled: * Rose Gold fill is permanent layers of rose gold pressure bonded to another metal, usually brass or copper. It is hundreds of times thicker than “gold-plated”, more valuable, and will not flake off, rub off, or turn colors! It will last as long as rose gold! * Anyone who can wear Rose Gold can also wear Rose Gold-filled without worries of an allergic reaction. * Use polishing cloths to shine up your beautiful Rose Gold-filled jewelry. Please do not use chemical cleaners, as they will remove the oxidization that darkens your lettering.

Aluminum is a great economical and kid-friendly way to get the look of a high-end piece! * Aluminum is tarnish resistant and allergy friendly! * Design shapes feature guitar picks, hearts and dog tags…perfect for that special boy or girl!
Tarnish Information: * Please understand that quality metals such as Sterling Silver, Brass, and Pewter naturally tarnish over time, but there are some ways to keep your heirloom quality pieces looking like new! * Never use chemical jewelry cleaners, especially with hand-stamped oxidized pieces. It is too harsh and will remove the darkened lettering. * Instead, Pro Polish pads, available here: http://www.ticklebugjewelry.com/store/p301/Pro_Polish_Pads-_Add_to_your_order_to_keep_your_Sterling_Silver_shining_like_new%21.html are the best way to rub off that surface tarnish. * Tarnish is caused by air, oils, makeup, perfume, and moisture. Jewelry should be the first thing you take off at night and the last thing you put on in the morning. The more you wear your jewelry, the more your body naturally polishes and prevents tarnish from forming! * Your Tickle Bug Jewelry comes with a beautiful gift box and purple jewelry cleaning cloth. Wipe your piece to clean before storing jewelry in an airtight bag. Use the Pro-Polish pads available for purchase to remove any tarnish and small scratches.
