All the glitters isn’t gold, especially if made of material that will tarnish over time.
That is the problem with jewelry, especially when worn everyday. Some can turn your neck or fingers green and other pieces can look sparkly and new, but fade to a dull brass shade after being exposed to sweat, water or even daily wear.
For those of us who don’t like to take off rings or remember to unclasp necklaces and bracelets before a shower, this article is for you as well, letting us all keep our lazy habits and helping our jewelry stay shiny and new.
We also wanted to mention the benefits of having a few staple pieces, to complement statement jewelry in your collection. These timeless gold and silver chains, rings and bracelets are easy to style and pack for vacation, matching any outfit while looking effortlessly sophisticated.
Plus, you won’t have to take it off when jumping in the pool or ocean, just don’t have a Kim Kardashian moment if you wear your priceless diamond studs.
Read on for the best brands that offer water-resistant and tarnish-proof jewels, from Gorjana to Mejuri and more.
For gorgeous everyday jewelry that holds up, head to Gorjana. The brand offers a few different types of jewelry, from 18K gold plated to their fine jewelry made of 14K or 18K gold.
“All gorjana 18k gold plated pieces are protected with an anti-tarnish barrier,” reads the site. “Our fine jewelry is made of 14k and 18k gold. These metals will not oxidize or discolor with proper care.”
Mejuri is a great site to shop to stock up on everyday pieces without the luxe price tag. The brand sells an array of items, but their 14K gold items are the best bet to stay shiny and new with continuous wear. They come in yellow gold, white gold and even a recycled option.
“With its beautiful, subtle hue, 14k gold will not oxidize or discolor, so you can wear your jewelry every day, everywhere,” reads the site. “Our ceramic jewelry is covered and protected with a waterproof glaze.”
This company understands the need for beautiful jewelry that is also low maintenance and easy to wear. That’s why their most popular beaded bracelets and other selects are tarnish-free, and can even be worn in the pool or ocean.
“Our 14K Yellow Gold and 14K Rose Gold filled beaded bracelets will not tarnish. You may wear them in the shower, while working out, in the swimming pool or ocean, as well as while sleeping,” reads the FAQ page.
This brand has a cheeky name and a great collection of jewelry, too. Bubs and Sass has a whole section of sweat proof jewelry on their site, with options in both gold and silver colors that hold up.
“Our stainless steel collection is growing every day. We recently made the switch to stainless steel chains for our entire collection, but these pieces are 100% stainless steel,” reads the page. “They are slightly darker than gold plated brass but hold up much better! Go ahead and dive in…your sweat-proof bubs & sass jewelry can handle it!”
Catbird has made a whole activity out of jewelry you don’t need to take off, as they don’t even give you the option. Get “zapped” with Catbird’s permanent jewelry, soldered on in their store.
For rings, necklaces and more made to last, Blue Steel is a great destination.
