Gold filled: A high quality type of gold-finish jewelry. Its base material is sterling silver and it has a super thick layer of gold plating for long-lasting colour and shine. The gold must be at least 14k and the plating at least 2.5 microns thick to be labelled “gold filled” according to US Federal Trade Commission regulations.
100% of our gold filled findings are made in the USA. Our Connecticut based team will then assemble it by hand.
Sterling silver: Sterling silver is a standard material in high quality jewelry. It is precious metal alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals. This is a wonderful base material because it is long-lasting and flexible. Did you know? Some of our silver-tone pieces are plated in rhodium, a rare, precious metal that gives the piece extra shine, lustre and durability.
