    What’s the deal with different types of gold in Jewelry?

     

    Hi Ladies!

    Have you ever had a piece of jewelry that you were so excited to wear, and a few days later it had tarnished and no longer had its luxurious gold look?

    Today I wanted to talk to you a little bit about types of gold! The most common question we receive is “can I wear this piece of jewelry in the water?” or “will this tarnish if I wear it every day?” The answer completely depends on what the piece is made out of, so I thought I would share some gold education with you all in order to help maintain the beauty of all of your pieces.

     

    Gold plated Jewelry:

    Gold plated jewelry has a thin layer of solid gold that is applied to a base of brass which is estimated to be 0.05% or less of the metal product. Gold plating is strong a durable, however it will generally wear off more quickly because of this we recommend always taking gold plated items off to swim, shower, and even be careful around perfume with these gorgeous pieces. Gold plated jewelry tends to be more affordable due to containing smaller amounts of gold, but it is still a gorgeous option if you’re on a budget, just make sure to take proper precaution in order to make it last!

    Vermeil Jewelry:

    Vermeil jewelry is made of sterling silver which has been gilded (similar to plating) with gold. Vermeil jewelry is higher quality than gold plated jewelry because the layer of gold is slightly thicker, and the base is sterling silver as opposed to brass. Although it has a thicker layer, in order to keep the gold color of your vermeil jewelry it is still essential to take off when you’re in water, because it can tarnish

    Gold-filled Jewelry:

    Gold-filled jewelry is jewelry composed of a solid layer of gold. Most high-quality gold-filled pieces have the same appearance as high carat gold. The core metal is brass and gold-filled is legally required to contain 5% or 1/20 gold by weight, to get specific. Most jewelry that is gold-filled made this way can last 10 to 30 years though the layer of gold will eventually wear off. Gold-filled jewelry is pricier than gold plated or vermeil jewelry, however it can be worn in the shower as well as most conditions and you don’t have to worry about it tarnishing, at least not for a long time!

    Solid gold Jewelry:

    Solid gold jewelry’s price comes from its value in the amount of solid gold you are getting in these pieces. Often gold is made into an alloy by mixing it with other metals in order to create a stronger metal than pure gold. Solid gold jewelry is the highest in price and purity.

    I hope this helped everyone, and now you can shop at ease knowing that you have the proper education on how to keep your jewelry beautiful and prevent the nasty green tarnish color.

  • 7 Outdated Jewelry Trends in 2020

    7 Outdated Jewelry Trends in 2020
    Outdated jewelry trends have got to go. A new year means new jewelry trends and collections for 2020. But in order to make room for new bling, we’re here to help you decide on what you should keep and what has to go. 

    Out: Bib Necklace

    In: Chain Necklace

    Bib necklaces have been around for some time and it's time to let them go. We welcome chain necklaces, think dainty and chunky. We love both! New is the paper clip inspired chains, check them out in our shop!


    Out: Huggie Hoops (dainty minimal hoops)

    In: Chunky Hoops

    Earrings are the big thing this year, think big and bold. We especially love the chunky hoops if you’re more of a classic gal.


    Out: 90s Choker

    In: Symbolic Necklaces

    Say goodbye to velvet or satin chokers, for now. And say hello to custom jewelry. Think astrology, dates, and more! We love necklaces with meaning to you, think symbolical.


    Out: Colorless Rings

    In: Colorful Bling

    Think turquoise, bright pastel tones. Fuschia is also going to be big. We love multicolored jewelry too, a great way to transition from Spring to Summer in 2020 too.


    Out: Minimal Earrings

    In: Statement Earrings

    Go bold, go long or dramatic. You can even wear just one darling statement earring (so 2020). 


    Out: Simple Minimal Necklaces

    In: Unique, Statement Layered sets

    Don’t be afraid to incorporate different layered necklaces with different styles. We love mixing coin, link chain, or unique chains together for a standout vibe.


    Out: Heart Lockets

    In: Baguettes

    Any jewelry with baguettes will be trending. Think multi-colored baguettes or baguette filled earrings. The options are endless!


    What to do with your old bling?

    We recommend keeping jewelry you may not wear, in a safe place as trends can come and go or DIY’ing them into something new. If you’re ready to just say goodbye, donating is a great way to go. We never recommend throwing something away unless it’s truly unwearable. 


    PS We have plenty of these trend-forward statement pieces, feel free to browse the shop. Happy shopping :)
