:: 14K Gold-filled
It is the next best thing to solid gold. 14K Gold-filled wire is a tube of 14K Gold that is filled with a base metal, usually brass. It is 10 times thicker than gold plate. There is absolutely no nickel or lead in it so it doesn't cause allergic reactions. Only 14K Gold touches the ear. It will not tarnish, and it will not discolor the ear.
14K Gold-filled sheet is a sandwich of sheets of 14K Gold soldered to each side of a sheet of base metal, usually brass. It is 10 times thicker than gold plate. There is absolutely no nickel or lead in it so it doesn't cause allergic reactions. Only 14K Gold touches the ear. It will not tarnish, and it will not discolor the ear.
(14K Gold filled, is nothing like plated gold. Most people confuse Gold-plate or Gold-tone with Gold-filled.
14K Gold-filled will not tarnish or bother your ears.) Clean it with warm soapy water or windex to remove body oils and/or hair spray.
We have 14K Yellow Gold-filled and 14K Rose Gold-filled.
:: 14K Rose Gold-filled
It is the same as 14K Gold-filled which is the usual yellow gold color. 14K Rose Gold-filled is a warm rosy color gold.The color
comes from the addition of a small amount of copper to the alloy. Like 14K Gold-filled, it is safe for your ears..
Clean it with warm soapy water or windex to remove body oils and/or hair spray.
:: Sterling Silver
Pure silver, also known as fine silver is generally too soft for jewelry. Sterling Silver is the standard for fine jewelry. It is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper, which hardens the silver to make it last a lifetime. Sterling Silver is the whitest metal, much whiter than white gold or platinum. All silver must be polished. It turns black and must be polished with a silver polish like Wrights Silver Cream or a silver dip. Sterling Silver is safe for most people, there is no nickel or lead in it. (Do not confuse silver from Mexico or Bali with Sterling Silver. Often Mexican and Balinese Silver contains nickel. Jewelry from China sometimes contains lead)
Vermeil is a heavy 14K Gold plate over Sterling Silver. It is used when the fabricating processes do not allow the use of 14K Gold-filled. It is the next best thing to 14K Gold-filled
Niobium is a pure precious metal, like gold or silver and can be worked with hand tools by artist designers. It's natural color is silver-gray. We color it with electricity. Each color is produced by a different voltage of electricity. The color is permanent and will not wash or wear off. By carefully varying the voltage we are able to produce different colors. Color is the vibration of light. The color of niobium is produced by light passing through a thin transparent layer that bends the light and creates the vivid, vibrant colors.
Niobium is hypo-allergenic. It is used in surgery for hip replacements. It is a pure element. There is no nickel or lead in it, and there are no other alloys in it, either. Even people who are allergic to gold can wear it. We guarantee that. (There may be a few hyper allergenic people who can not wear it) It's also very easy to clean. You just wash it with warm soapy water.
:: 14K Gold
14K Gold (also known as 14K Solid Gold) is the standard for fine jewelry. Pure 24K Gold is usually too soft to use for most jewelry so it is alloyed with silver, copper and other metals to harden and color it and make it last a lifetime. 14K Gold is 57.5% Pure Gold and the rest is alloys. We have 14K Yellow Gold, 14K White Gold and 14K Rose Gold.
:: 18K Gold
1K Gold (also known as 18K Solid Gold) is used when a warmer color is desired or when someone is more sensitive to metals. It has a higher percentage of Pure Gold, 75% than 14K Gold.
:: 24K Gold
24K Gold (also known as Pure Gold) Pure 24K Gold is usually too soft to use for most jewelry but a California inventor has created a way to harden it and still have it be 999 fine, i.e. Pure Gold. Our 24K Pure Gold is as durable as 14K Gold, but it has the rich warm color of Pure Gold. And no alloys in it so it's safe for the most sensitive ears.
Pewter is an alloy of Tin and Copper. It is Nickel and Lead free.
We use genuine Fresh Water Pearls and Cultured Pearls and Cultured Fresh Water Pearls. We select them for color and lustre.
We use genuine laboratory grown Opal, which insures consistency and intense color and fire. They are coated with Lucite to protect them from drying or cracking.
