Takobia jewelry is made using a variety of metals and finishes. Nearly all the earrings are made with lightweight iron. Chains and other components are made with brass or zinc alloy. All metals, plating, and coating finishes are lead, nickel, and cadmium free. During the first part of the manufacturing process, the etching is done by hand. The second step is the silver and/or gold plating. The precious metal finish is then electro coated (e-coated) as a sealant.
Cleaning or polishing is NOT recommended.
Unlike fashion jewelry, Takobia uses precious metal earwires exclusively. Takobia ear wires and posts are made from sterling silver or 14k gold filled material. We add rubber stoppers to all earwires. May the wearer be happy! (and not lose her earrings!) Please twist (not push) rubber stoppers to prevent the bending of earwires.
