Gold-Filled Info + Care

Gold-filled jewelry wears like solid gold because the outer surface IS solid gold. Gold-Filled materials are created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of gold to a base metal. The bond produced is a permanent one. Unlike plated (aka electroplated or "dipped") metals, Gold-Filled jewelry does not change color, turn your skin green, or peel. This makes it ideal for people with sensitive skin.

Our Gold-Filled items are 14 karat gold-filled, usually lasting an average of 15 years, depending on the wear and care. Many owners find that they never have to clean their gold-filled items at all, however, from time to time your jewelry may become dirty from everyday love. To clean gold-filled jewelry, it is best to use mild soap and water.

Sterling Silver Info + Care

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals. Silver needs to be combined with other metals because it is very difficult to make great designs with pure silver, which is very soft and malleable. This is why jewelers are capable of making the most intricate and sturdy designs with 925 Sterling Silver.

CARE:
You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often! The natural oils in your skin actually help protect and clean the silver. If tarnishing occurs, there are many ways to clean your sterling silver jewelry using ingredients found in your kitchen.
