what is gold filled?
Gold filled consists of a base metal bonded with a layer of gold over top. gold filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. All the gold filled jewelry that we carry is 14k yellow or rose gold filled. meaning, all the gold that is bonded was 14k solid gold to be gin with. This can be described as either 12/20 gold filled, or 14k gold filled. Please see the diagram below to get a better idea of what we mean. Also note that it isn’t to scale, just an example to explain the idea.
what is the difference between gold filled and gold plated?
Gold filled has almost 100 times more gold than gold plated jewelry. Gold filled is much more durable and will not chip away like gold plated does.
what is the difference between 10k and 14k solid gold?
10k gold contains 41.7% gold and 14k contains 58.3% pure gold. 10k gold is stronger than 14k gold. Other metals have been added to pure gold to strengthen it.
what is the difference between white, yellow, and rose gold?
Pure gold is pure yellow. Other alloys are mixed with gold to change is colour and strength. White gold usually contains 25% nickel and zinc. To make rose gold copper is added.
will this jewelry leave green marks on my skin?
On very rare occasions gold, gold filled, and sterling silver can leave green marks on the skin. This is not because it isn’t real, it’s because the alloy added to these metals can sometimes discolour the skin, usually because of the copper that is added. Everyone is different and everyone reacts to metals differently. It can also depend on moisture, sweat, and lotions used that will cause a reaction with the metals on the skin.
why don’t you make everything in rose gold?
We have a select amount of studs and rings in rose gold filled. All these pieces have solder marks that are hidden so we use yellow gold solder in these instances. We have an out of house manufacturer where we get our rose gold filled endless hoops and simple stacking rings. The reason we don’t use rose gold solder is that we haven’t been able to find one that doesn’t contain cadmium. Cadmium is a carcinogen similar to lead which has been linked to cancer, damage to the lungs and kidneys and weaken bones. We choose not to solder with cadmium as the fumes are toxic.
how do I care for my jewelry?
Keep your jewelry in a box or bag to keep it from discolouring or tarnishing. If your jewelry does change you can wash it with dish soap and water by gently scrubbing with a toothbrush. Please steer clear of applying moisturizers and lotions when wearing rings, bracelets, and necklaces. IT is best to refrain from wearing jewelry while bathing and swimming.

| CARE + THANK YOU |
We do our best to create excellent quality hand crafted pieces, which can sometimes be delicate. Be sure to keep it in a safe place (the box or bag it came in will do) and try not to wear it when swimming or bathing. Don't wear jewelry while swimming, bathing, and keep away from moisturizers and lotions.
Keeping your jewels in a box will keep them from tarnishing and remain their brightest. Sterling silver can tarnish over time, but you can clean your jewelry by washing it gently with dish soap and a toothbrush. Make sure to rinse thoroughly and dry with a clean towel.
We want you to LOVE your new piece of jewelry so if for any reason there are any issues please don't hesitate to contact us.
