ABOUT THE JEWELRY
Is VeraMeat jewelry eco-friendly?
Yes, we use a recycled printer called Greenerprinter in San Francisco for all our business cards and postcards. We also use a recycled caster in Manhattan for our silver jewelry. Plus, our tote bags are made from recycled material.
Is the silver sterling silver? Also, what is gold fill?
Yes, the silver is not plated, it is solid sterling silver. Our gold fill chains are silver chains dipped in 14k gold. No VeraMeat charms are plated. Our copper items are solid copper.
I'm interested in your Oxidized Silver!
Any of our sterling silver pieces can be oxidized/blackened! If you are purchasing in-store, just let the sales person know that you'd like your silver piece oxidized. If you are ordering online, please send an email immediately after ordering to email@example.com and let us know you'd like a piece oxidized!
I have some VeraMeat & I’d like to polish it, how do I do it?
For silver you can make a paste of baking soda and water and gently buff with a cloth or tooth brush. You can also use white toothpaste. Or boil with baking soda and 1 teaspoon of salt for just a few minutes and polish with soft cloth.
For red copper make paste using lemon and salt or cut a lemon in half, dip into course salt, polish and rinse. You can also place a lot of salt in a little water, add enough vinegar to cover the salt, place copper in the bowl & rinse after 5 minutes.
For gold use a little white toothpaste and polish with soft cloth.
For gold brass—believe it or not—tomato sauce works well if you rinse with water after. You can also make a lemon and baking soda solution. Also, the vinegar and salt with soft cloth method works well. Rub with olive oil after to prevent tarnishing!
Will the copper and gold brass turn my fingers green?
It depends one hundred percent on the person. Those with dry skin have less chance of fingers turning green. You can put clear nail polish inside ring which will protect it and your fingers. If you are unsure about what metal allergies you might have, sterling silver is always the safest bet.
