Our jewelry collections are solid gold, and more specifically solid 14k gold or 18k gold. Customers will often ask us, what is 18k gold? Is 18k gold better than 14k gold? and how to identify what metal their jewelry is made of.
As a starting point, it helps to understand that one hundred percent pure gold is 24 karat gold. Karats are a measure to describe the percentage of gold purity in a piece of fine jewelry. Because 24k gold is soft, it is not ideally suited for everyday jewelry, and for that reason, pure gold is mixed with other alloys to create the best quality composition for your jewelry.
We design all of our pieces to be part of your life for generations. Delivering "more gold" in each piece is an important part of that lifetime quality.
What's the difference 18k and 14K gold?
The karat weights and terms used to identify gold jewelry can be new to many of us so we wanted to share some information and resources to explain more about gold purity in fine jewelry.
