Gold jewelry, whether solid gold or gold-plated, really shouldn’t be worn in the water. Luckily, Hey Harper makes waterproof and sweatproof jewelry — so you can always live your life with your accessories on without worrying about them tarnishing or fading.

Yes, solid gold is inherently waterproof compared to other metals like silver or brass, but it’s also pretty soft, delicate and expensive — why run the risk of ruining it? On the other hand, water, natural minerals and chemicals (like those found in a pool) could cause gold-plating to wear out or chip off.

According to the brand, Hey Harper’s gold jewelry is all crafted with durable stainless steel and a special gold coating process called Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) that’s 10 times stronger than the standard process.

“Physical Vapor Deposition is a dramatically different coating process compared to a gold or silver plating,” its website explains. “Any plated jewelry will tarnish sooner or later, there’s no way to avoid it. The industry speaks for itself: There are several jewelry replating businesses. Our jewelry cannot be replated, but you’ll never have to. This coating is what makes our pieces daily-life resistant, you can sweat, shower and spend your summer at the beach, the color won’t fade.”

In fact, the brand is so confident that they offer a lifetime color warranty. Over the last four years, the brand shares that 99.6% of its jewelry kept its color, according to its customers. Therefore, if, for some reason, your piece is in the .04% that fades, email the brand’s customer support with a picture of your piece, and it will take care of it for you.

In addition to its color guarantee, Hey Harper’s jewelry is affordable and gorgeous. Its goal is to “democratize” quality jewelry and make it accessible to all. It has earrings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, anklets and more. (It also has separate watch and athleisure lines.) Most things cost under $200, but the majority range between $50–$80. You can save on jewelry bundles, too.
