ABOUT OUR METALS

  • GOLD FILL | Gold fill is made by heat and pressure-bonding a layer of 14k gold to a brass core. This process is extrememly strong and will last decades and even centuries if taken care of properly. Gold is naturally very soft, so bonding it to brass adds strength to our designs. The wonderful thing about this process is that everything you see and touch is 14k gold and always will be, so you don't have to worry about flaking, tarnishing, allergies, or turning your skin green! It also helps use less gold, which decreases the demand for new mines (a bonus for the world!) and decreases the cost.

Gold fill is not the same as gold plate or gold-plated. Plated metal is made by dipping any kind of metal in a very thin coating of gold. This is what you will find at the mall and it flakes and wears off quickly. Normal wear and tear won't impact your gold fill. 

Gold fill is naturally tarnish resistant; however it can get dirty or smudged. To keep your gold shiny and glowing, wipe it with a soft cloth. Gold doesn't normally tarnish unless it's around very harsh chemicals. In the unlikely case that happens, just use a jeweler's polishing cloth to wipe it off. The biggest threats to gold fill are abrasives. So avoid scratching the surface with harsh polishers, baking soda, or sandpaper. 

  • STERLING SILVER | We use 100% recycled sterling silver that is milled in the American Southwest. Natural silver does darken with time which can be very beautiful. But if you prefer your silver bright and shiny (as we do!) you can use a polishing cloth to gently buff it clean. If you're in a pinch, a bit of baking soda and a soft cloth will also work. Leaving your silver in a humid environment or at the bottom of a jewelry box is one of the quickest ways to make your silver tarnish. Lucky for us, wearing silver jewelry often actually slows down the rate of tarnish and oxidation!
