What is Gold Filled?
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors. As a matter of fact, anyone who can wear gold can wear gold filled without worries of an allergic reaction to the jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is an economical alternative to solid gold.
Argentium silver is 100% recycled and purer, brighter and whiter than platinum, white gold or traditional sterling. It's hypo-allergenic, antibacterial and the perfect choice for those who are sensitive to metals and traditional sterling or white gold. Argentium silver is highly tarnish resistant, low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean.
How do I keep my jewelry shiny and new?
Since I use high-quality metals all you should need is a quick polish now and then. I recommend sunshine polishing cloths.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes! I love working with customers to bring their visions to life, contact me so we can discuss it!
