Love & Care
We use Fine Italian Brass that is specifically created for Jewellery and has a golden lustre. Brass is made from copper and zinc and like silver a natural patina will develop over time giving it a matte finish. To restore the highly bright, polished finish follow the easy care instructions that come with every ORA piece, which applies to the cleaning for your silver and gold jewellery too.
The more you love & care for your Jewellery, the more it will sparkle for you!
Jewellery by nature is delicate and general wear and tear can happen. If your ORA piece needs repairing it will be our pleasure to repair it for you. If the damage is from general wear and tear within 6 Months of Purchase, upon our inspection and determination, we may repair your piece at no charge. After this however there will be a repair fee charged to the customer. This amount will only be determined after inspection of your ORA piece.
Please note you will be responsible for all courier fee’s involved in the repair process.
If you have lost or damaged a piece of your ORA Jewellery, please contact us and we will try our best to help!
