Our jewelry is handmade by owner Sheri Kira. She only uses 14k Gold Fill, 14k Rose Gold Fill and Sterling silver.
Gold Filled is a thick layer of real gold bonded onto a base metal, such as brass or copper. It does not wear off as quickly as gold plated, however, over time can wear down to the base metal.
Gold Plated is a layer of gold applied to a base metal, usually by electroplating. This is usually a very thin layer, which is likely to wear quicker than gold filled.
Argentium Silver is real Sterling Silver, as it contains 92.5% silver. The addition of germanium causes it to not tarnish like traditional Sterling Silver, and it contains no nickel. It stays bright and beautiful for weeks, months, or years. It requires only an occasional wipe with a soft cloth to remove a smudge or finger mark. Tarnish is a discoloration of the surface caused by oxygen and sulfur. Argentium Silver forms a clear oxide reducing the tarnishing.
Using a jewelry shine cloth, you can easily rub away darkened areas on your sterling silver and gold jewelry. We sell these for $3. You can also soak your jewelry piece in soapy warm water and let it sit for 5-10 minutes, then gently rub your jewelry piece.
