GUARANTEE AND CARE for your Nomination items



Nomination South Africa upholds the global brand warranty of Nomination Italy as outlined below. Nomination is a world leader in the jewellery market, creating fashionable jewellery for men and women designed and made primarily in Italy using artisan techniques and high quality materials. Nomination puts their name on each piece of jewellery to guarantee originality and origin.


All products sold by Nomination are covered by the 24 (twenty-four) month legal guarantee against defects in conformity, according to Title III of the legislative decree 206/2005.
The legal guarantee against conformity defects is only valid when the product is used correctly and as per its intended use, according to the usage and care instructions provided along with said product.

The defect in the product’s conformity must be communicated to Nomination within 2 (two) months of discovery. Conformity defects for items purchased on can be communicated to Nomination by emailing our Customer Service Department: 

In order to utilise the guarantee, it’s necessary to provide the receipt indicating the product’s purchase date, alongside the warranty certificate, validated with the stamp and signature of our authorised retailer in the case of a purchase made at a retail store.

If there is a defect in conformity, the Client has the right to request the repair or substitution of the product. If such a repair or replacement isn’t possible or is excessively costly, the Client has the right to a price reduction or to the dissolution of the contract of sales, according to article 130 of the Consumer Code. Once Nomination has received and verified the product under warranty, Nomination will proceed with said product’s repair or substitution as soon as possible, except when not possible or in the case of excessive costs, as per article 130 of the Consumer Code.

Jewellery purchased through Nomination SA's official online store is accompanied with a warranty certificate according to the terms outlined above. If an entire Composable (modular) bracelet is purchased, there is one warranty and it covers all of the individual parts which make up the bracelet.

The manufacturer’s guarantee does not cover rhodium-plated, gold-plated or PVD coated items, nor does it cover accidental gemstone breakage. Loss of colour due to improper use and/or items produced in coloured leather is not considered a manufacturing defect.

It is recommended to avoid contact with: cosmetics and perfumes as these may damage the finish of the jewellery; and chemicals, in particular chlorine, and to take special precautions while playing sports or when carrying out domestic tasks.

The mechanism and/or springs of the COMPOSABLE bracelet are excluded from the warranty in the case where items and/or components not sourced/produced by Nomination have been assembled or attached to the COMPOSABLE bracelet. Original Nomination COMPOSABLE jewellery is easily identified because each piece contains the Nomination logo and is therefore distinguishable from articles and/or components of different origin.


(In accordance with the legislative decree n. 206/2005)

Nomination jewellery is crafted in certified AISI 304/316L stainless steel in combination with sterling silver and/or with 18K or 9K gold and may be treated with a galvanic bath of rose gold, yellow gold, rhodium and oxide, or with a PVD coating using hypoallergenic materials. Nomination collections in silver are crafted in sterling silver; they may be combined with natural, synthetic, and/or artificial stones and may undergo an oxidation process and/or a galvanic bath of rose gold, yellow gold, or rhodium.
Nomination jewellery may also contain enamels; natural, synthetic and/or artificial stones; leather, copper, brass, rubber, silicone and cotton.


The materials used for Nomination products are in compliance with Regulation (CE) N. 1907/2006 and with Regulation (UE) N. 494/2011.

18K – 9K GOLD
Nomination uses 18k yellow gold and 9K rose gold.

Nomination uses a wide variety of precious and semi-precious gemstones as well as Cubic Zirconia, synthetic stones, Swarovski Elements and Cubic Zirconia. All our stones are carefully selected, however natural stones vary in colour and may display some of their natural characteristics: inclusions, streaks and veins. These features are to be expected in natural stones and are not to be considered imperfections.

Nomination uses only the finest quality hypo-allergenic sterling silver treated with various finishes. Rhodium is used to prevent tarnishing and maintain shine, specific collections are oxidised to achieve a vintage effect and others are made more precious with gold plating: 24K yellow gold plating and rose gold plating with a 24K yellow gold base and 22K rose gold plating.

Nomination uses only the highest quality stainless steel (304 or 316). Stainless steel is incredibly strong and resistant, is does not tarnish and it is hypo-allergenic. It was not traditionally used to create jewellery as it is not malleable like gold and silver, however once created your stainless steel jewellery is designed to resist the test of time even if you wear it every day.

Nomination uses coloured enamel to highlight and enhance decorative details. Enamel details are painted by hand. Enamel details are resistant to water but may be damaged by corrosive substances. Enamel should be regarded as a fragile material as a violent blow may cause the enamel to crack and the colour to be disturbed.

Nomination uses only high quality Italian leather. Natural leather requires special care in order to preserve its original colour, finish and softness so leather components should be removed before making contact with water, creams/oils and perfumes. Coloured leather may fade if exposed to direct sunlight for long periods. Leather has a natural elasticity so you may find that your bracelet or necklace may seem a little larger after you have been wearing it for a while.

Nomination also uses brass which is coated with 18K rose gold and/or rhodium finishing. In certain specific collections brass is used with 999 silver finishing and with vintage or aging finishings.


To avoid damaging gemstones and scratching your jewellery, store in a jewellery box with separate compartments or in soft pouches. Remember to remove your jewellery before applying perfumes, skin creams, suntan lotion or oils of any kind. Never wear your jewellery when working with detergents, bleaches, ammonia or alcohols; these chemicals will cause discolouration, and damage and loosen stone settings. To clean sterling silver or gold plated jewellery use a dry soft clean cloth to wipe them clean. Do not use brushes of any kind as these may scratch your jewellery. To clean stainless steel jewellery use warm soapy water and a soft toothbrush.
