They are really delicate and thin. So elegant. The first shipment got lost in the mail but Allison was super helpful and she sent me another pair. That second pair just arrived in my mailbox and I'm happy it worked out.

About

Handmade, with love, in Chicago...

Handmade, with love, in Chicago.

I am a jewelry designer from Chicago, Illinois with a recent focus on modern, minimalist metal work. I love unique yet simple designs with an edge that I hope you will want to keep collecting.

I have been making jewelry for a long time, but it has been my full-time work for the last 11 years. It started with my line being picked up by Nordstrom stores in 2005.

I'm a mom of two beautiful daughters, Tallulah and Imogene, and business is now on a smaller scale, but it is just as enjoyable and I love the challenges of metal smithing.

I work with sterling silver, gold fill and rose gold fill predominately, and I love to play with oxidizing sterling for ombre effects.

Custom orders, collaborations and wholesale inquiries are welcome!

Welcome to Allison Mooney Design Jewelry. All of my pieces are hand made, by me, in Chicago. I am a designer who likes things unique yet simple - timeless pieces that you'll wear over and over. I hope you like what you see!

Iinformation on Gold Fill and Gold Plated Jewelry from Rings & Things and eHow:
What's the Difference between Gold Plate and Gold Fill?
Gold fill is 50 to 100,000 times thicker than regular gold plating, and about 17 to 25,000 times thicker than heavy gold electroplate.

Wear - Gold-plated and gold-filled jewelry also differ in terms of wear and tear. The coloring on gold-plated jewelry tends to wear off more easily than gold-filled jewelry. Gold-plated jewelry reacts to salts in human skin and pollutants in the air, breaking down more quickly than its filled counterparts.

Gold Vermeil? Gold Filled? Gold Plated?
Gold-plated: A base metal such as steel or brass is dipped into a bath of electroplating solution, with a lump of solid gold. When an electric current is applied, a thin layer of gold is deposited on the metal. Since the plating is quite thin, the plate (and hence the colour) on findings can wear off.

Sterling Silver: is a mixture of pure silver and some other metal, usually copper. The resulting alloy gives the silver strength. The standard is at least 92.5% silver. Hence the .925 stamp you see on some sterling silver items.

Vermeil: (Pronounced: Vermay) is sterling silver that has been gold-plated. Most of our vermeil is plated with 22K-24K gold. This is a good combination for those with allergy to normal, plated jewelry items. The difference between vermeil, and gold-filled, is in the thickness of the gold and the base metal used. In vermeil, the base is sterling silver.

Gold-filled: also called rolled-gold. These jewelry items are not actually filled with gold. They are made of a base metal (usually brass or copper) covered by sheets of gold in a mechanical bonding process. Effectively a thick coat of gold: the gold content is 5% or 1/20 of the total weight. Use gold-filled items for your top-of-the-line jewelry. Usually made with 14k gold, it is hard wearing. With reasonable care it will not peel or flake, and should last as long as solid 14k gold jewelry. It is safe for most people with sensitive skin

Gold jewelry reacts with chlorine. Never take your gold jewelry into a pool or spa.
