Store your jewellery individually in an air-tight container to prevent tarnishing and chipping. Your H&B box is a great place to store it too. Keep your jewellery sparkling bright by cleaning or buffing with an untreated or dry polishing cloth. Keep your jewellery away from the bathroom, heating vents or window sills, as damp and hot conditions can cause the jewellery to tarnish faster. Protect your jewellery by avoiding contact with soaps, perfumes, lotions, makeup and hair products etc.

You can visit any of our retail locations or reach out to our client care team to begin the warranty process. If you’re visiting a retail location, remember to bring your proof of purchase (ie. receipt) and the jewelry item. Please bring both earrings if you need an earring replacement.

Loss and natural wear and tear are not covered by H&B warranty. But if you lose one earring, reach out to us and we’ll be happy to assist you in finding a replacement!
We’ve been continually improving the water resistance of our designs so that you can wear and share your H&B with confidence.
You asked; we listened! Innovating our Sparkle pieces to balance beauty, durability, versatility, and affordability has been an ongoing initiative. Some of our designs have always been water resistant, and we wanted to ensure all pieces carried this same promise. Please note that our pieces are not built for prolonged water submergence (ie. swimming), but will not be damaged by occasional exposure.
Designs from January 2021 and beyond carry the water friendly guarantee. This guarantee is part of our standard warranty, and as such, cannot be retroactively applied.
No. To extend the life of your products, we recommend minimizing exposure to liquids including beauty products, oils, and lotions. Our Sparkle pieces are made with a clay base that is coated to resist damage from true water exposure. Liquids with chemicals and fragrances can penetrate this protective covering and cause damage to the clay.
Yes! H&B warranty covers manufacturing defects related to the types of water exposure outlined above.
Please note, other liquids, such as cosmetic products, typically cause discolouration to Sparkle pieces. This discolouration is not covered by H&B warranty and will not result from acceptable levels of water-specific exposure.
925 Sterling Silver
Because you were made to shine. Our products are designed with sterling silver: a high quality metal, safe for sensitive skin. Other materials include 14k, gemstones, and crystals.
925 sterling silver is the primary metal used in our designs. It can often be identified with the .925 stamp, as found on the caps of Sparkle studs. 925 sterling silver means that the metal is 92.5% silver. The remaining composition includes other metals that add features such as durability and lustre.
Using 925 sterling silver as our base metal allows us to balance beauty, quality, and affordability in our designs.
925 sterling silver does not mean the metal is 100% hypoallergenic, but sterling silver is safe for most sensitivities. All of our earrings are also guaranteed to be nickel free, which is the most common irritant for sensitive ears.
Come see us in-store or online if you experience an unexpected reaction. We’ll be happy to find a solution that works for you!
Sometimes, skin PH reacts with a metal and results in mild, temporary skin discolouration. Skin PH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline your skin is.
Yes! Sterling silver is a soft metal. Bending is normal, not an indicator of poor quality, and can be corrected by gently bending the post back into place with your fingers. Our client ambassadors are happy to assist if you wish to bring earrings in-store for assessment.
Your H&B favourites should be stored in an airtight container or jewelry storage box for optimal care.
Exposure to air will cause metals, like sterling silver, to tarnish. For this reason, we do not recommend jewelry trays, hanging storage solutions, or keeping your pieces in humid environments.
Tarnishing is a natural occurrence for sterling silver pieces, and can be cleaned. Jewelry cleaners and soft polishing cloths are recommended to keep your pieces looking shiny and new.
To prevent tarnishing, follow our recommendations for care and storage by avoiding exposure to liquids and keeping your pieces in an airtight storage space.
Our gold and rose gold pieces also use a base of sterling silver—referred to as plated sterling silver. The 925 sterling silver base is covered by a layer of 14K gold or rose gold. The thickness of this layer is measured in microns, and our designs typically use 2-2.5 microns of 14K in these applications.
We use plating to provide different colour and style options while maintaining an affordable price point.
