Drop Crystal Thread Through Earrings - 14K Gold Filled
Gold-filled jewelry surpasses the value of gold-plated pieces by a significant margin. Remarkably, gold-filled items contain nearly 100 percent more actual gold content than their gold-plated counterparts. This results in gold-filled jewelry possessing the same coveted properties and appearance as solid gold. Moreover, it boasts exceptional resistance to tarnishing and is water safe. For individuals with metal sensitivities, gold-filled jewelry offers a worry-free option, as it can be worn without concerns of triggering allergic reactions.
PVD, short for Physical Vapor Deposition, is a vacuum coating method used to apply a gold layer to the base metal, used by luxury brands like Rolex and Cartier. G&J uses an extra thick PVD coating well above the industry standard. Compared to gold plating, PVD coatings offer superior resistance to corrosion caused by sweat and everyday use. This process results in a dazzling, functional finish, particularly effective when used with Stainless Steel as a base metal, ensuring it remains hypoallergenic. For those who prefer to keep their jewelry on at all times, PVD is an excellent choice due to its vibrancy and exceptional durability, lasting for many years.
Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% alloy. This 7.5% is usually made of copper or zinc. The addition of these other metals makes sterling silver significantly stronger and more durable. All of our silver pieces are made with '925 Sterling Silver', never 'silver-plated'. They are hypoallergenic, tarnish-resistant, and made to last!
