About our Jewelry
Gold: Because of the softness of pure (24 karat) gold, most jewelry is made from 14 karat gold, and sometimes 18 karat gold. If a piece of jewelry on our website is listed as 14K Gold or similar, than you will know it is solid 14K gold, not gold-plated or gold-filled.
Sterling Silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5 by weight of silver and 7.5 by weight of other metals, usually copper. Fine silver, for example 99.9% pure silver, is generally too soft for producing functional objects; therefore, our silver jewelry is made of Sterling Silver.
Gold-Filled is an actual layer of gold that is pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating as gold-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.
Rhodium is a rare, silvery-white, hard member of the platinum group. Naturally occurring rhodium is one of the rarest and most valuable precious metals. Rhodium is a noble metal, resistant to corrosion, found in platinum or nickel ores together with the other members of the platinum group metals.
Pewter is a malleable metal alloy, traditionally 85–99% tin, with the remainder consisting of copper, antimony, bismuth and sometimes, less commonly today, lead. Silver is also sometimes used.
