What Materials Do You Use?
Our jewelry is made of sterling silver, 14k gold vermeil, 14k gold filled and natural gemstones. All crystal and gemstone inventory is personally selected and checked for authenticity. As with any business, my list of suppliers is proprietary information, however, gemstone and crystal country of origin information is shared when available.
What is Gold Vermeil?
Gold vermeil, also known as "silver gilt", originated in the 19th century and refers to sterling silver jewelry plated with gold. In order to be considered gold vermeil, it must meet the following criteria:
- Sterling silver base
- 10k gold or higher (we use 14k)
- at least 2.5 microns thick (vs gold plated very thin)
Gold vermeil allows us to use our same sterling silver casting process to provide you high quality gold jewelry without the high price tag! Gold vermeil is marked using the 925 sterling silver stamp.
What is Gold Filled?
Gold filled is a process that involves pressure bonding layers of 14k gold with extreme heat over brass or other base metal. Gold filled jewelry must have a minimum of 1/20th (5%) gold by weight. Gold filled pieces are marked 14/20 GF or 14k GF. As gold filled can't be used in castings, we use this high quality option for our chains and clasps.

How Do I Clean and Care for My Jewelry?
Sterling silver naturally tarnishes when exposed to air, chlorine, sulfur, humidity, perspiration, cosmetics, bleach and other chemicals. Fun tip: wearing your sterling silver jewelry regularly can help prevent tarnishing!
- To remove tarnish, we recommend regularly wiping your sterling silver jewelry with a non abrasive jewelry polish cloth.
- Any remaining tarnish may be cleaned with mild diluted soap and an ultra soft bristle toothbrush.
Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly before wearing or storing in an air tight container or baggie.
Gemstones may attract oils, lotions, and dirt, which can cause them to appear dull.
- To clean your gemstone jewelry, we recommend using a non-abrasive lint-free cloth to wipe clean. If needed, remove any remaining dirt behind the stone with mild diluted soap and an ultra-soft bristle toothbrush.
Rinse with warm water and thoroughly drying with a lint-free cloth before wearing or storing in an airtight container or baggie.
*Opaque gemstones should only be wiped clean with a damp cloth.
- Avoid contact with hair sprays, lotions, or perfumes since the chemicals can be absorbed over time and cause discoloration.
We highly recommend you remove jewelry before exercising, swimming, showering, gardening, and certain household chores (What a great excuse to get out of cleaning! You're welcome). When not wearing, store your silver jewelry in an airtight container or baggie.
