Materials & Care


Gold Filled

Gold filled jewelry is an affordable, quality alternative to solid gold jewelry. It carries the same durable quality as solid gold because an actual layer of pure gold is pressure bonded to a base metal. It’s required by U.S. law that the layer of gold consists of at least 5% of the total weight, which is considerably more than gold plated items. With proper care, gold filled jewelry won’t tarnish and can last up to 30 years! We source all of our gold filled materials from the U.S. to provide you with quality pieces.

Clean your gold filled jewelry regularly with a little warm water and a soft cotton cloth. Make sure to stay away from any chemical cleaners.


Gold Plated

Gold plated jewelry has a thin layer of solid gold electroplated to a base metal, which provides a nice, shiny gold finish. Since solid gold can be soft and easily damaged, gold plated jewelry can be a sturdy alternative. Unfortunately, gold plated jewelry can begin to fade and tarnish over time.

Make sure to take your jewelry off when doing any activities, particularly cleaning. You can use a little warm water and a soft cotton cloth to clean your gold plated pieces, but try to keep that to a minimum as well.


Gold Vermeil

Gold vermeil (pronounced ver-MAY) jewelry has a thin layer of solid gold electroplated to sterling silver. The base metal and a thicker layer of gold is what differs gold vermeil from gold plated jewelry. Gold vermeil is more durable than gold plated, but it will eventually fade.

Make sure to remove jewelry when applying perfume or lotions. You can use a little warm water and a soft cotton cloth to clean your gold vermeil pieces.


Rose Gold Filled

The pink tone in rose gold jewelry is achieved by mixing pure gold with copper. Gold filled jewelry is an affordable, quality alternative to solid gold jewelry. It carries the same durable quality as solid gold because an actual layer of pure gold is pressure bonded to a base metal. It’s required by U.S. law that the layer of gold consists of at least 5% of the total weight, which is considerably more than gold plated items. With proper care, gold filled jewelry won’t tarnish and can last up to 30 years! We source all of our gold filled materials from the U.S. to provide you with quality pieces.

Clean your gold filled jewelry regularly with a little warm water and a soft cotton cloth. Make sure to stay away from any chemical cleaners.


Sterling Silver

Pure silver is extremely soft and prone to damage, so it’s often mixed with other metals for durability. Natural dulling occurs because silver reacts to particles in the air. You can use a polishing cloth to remove tarnish and maintain the brightness of your sterling silver jewelry.


Rhodium Plated

Rhodium is a silver-white precious metal. A thin layer of rhodium is typically electroplated to a base metal, which provides a durable, shiny finish. Unfortunately, rhodium plated jewelry can eventually fade and tarnish over time.

Clean your jewelry with a polishing cloth or with mild detergent and warm water.
