Our Jewelry

Our jewelry is made with high quality Gold Fill and/or high quality 18k gold plating. All of our rings are Gold Fill, which will give you a lifelong wear guarantee when when treated with proper care. 

With gold plated pieces, avoid using oils/creams on the area of where your jewelry sits. If needed, wait until creams or oils dry until applying jewelry. Nail polish, chlorine, sweat and polish remover are all substances that will interact with the jewelry. Remove any jewelry when working out or swimming. Do try as often to wipe jewelry with a clean cotton ball or gentle cloth as this will keep your jewelry shiny and remove any dirt or oils. If jewelry is in need of a deeper clean, dont go to a jewelry cleaner as gold plated jewelry is different from other finishes. You can use water and soap (make sure your soap is NOT antibacterial.)

With gold filled pieces, they are tarnish free, waterproof and last a lifetime when treated with care. When gold filled pieces look dim and dull, or start to show signs of tarnish due to improper care, you may bring the jewelry to a cleaner, or do this at home with an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. You can also clean the piece with mild soapy water and a toothbrush. 

14k Gold Fill

Gold Filled jewelry is constructed in a few layers. The core metal is High quality jewelers brass, with a Solid Gold outer sleeve- pressure bonded to the core. All of our jewelry bases (chain, jump rings, clasps) is either Gold Filled or Stainless Steel, with our charms and pendants being either gold plated or stainless steel.

Quality: Gold Filled jewelry has a longer wear life than gold vermeil and gold plated.

Cost: When deciding what finish to go with, we always wanted quality over cost, however also wanting to stay at an affordable price range. Gold Filled provides that high quality, but also fits under an affordable price range. 

Recycle: Gold Filled jewelry can be recycled, YAY! Our goal is to create pieces that do last so you can avoid disposing of super cheap jewelry that fades fast, however if wanting to dispose of Gold Filled jewelry, it is 100% recyclable. 

Sensitive Skin

When wearing Gold Filled Jewelry, the chances of it irritating  those who have jewelry allergies are very slim. Our pieces are all lead and nickel free. However, with earrings the chance of irritation does go up, so we decided to go from our previous finish to a Hypoallergenic option, that being gold plated Stainless Steel.

Stainless Steel jewelry is Hypoallergenic, Non tarnish, Fade free, and has no discoloration.
