We offer a variety of semi-precious stones, gemstones, crystals and beads in creating our designs. Stones may vary in color, size and availability but we do our best to ensure we use the highest quality of stones. We purchase all of our stones locally.
The metals we feature in our designs are purchased only in the United States and include 14 Karat Gold-Filled and Sterling Silver. We use these metals because they provide the highest quality at the most affordable price.
14K Gold-filled is a durable gold product affording the look of solid gold at a fraction of the cost. It is made by bonding a layer of 14K Gold to a base metal, usually brass, through heat and pressure. It is sturdier than gold plate—which has an ultra-thin coating and can turn colors and eventually chip off—or vermeil, which can rub off through normal wear. 14/20 Gold-Filled materials are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission and must contain 1/20th of 14K Gold.
If you can wear gold, you can wear gold-filled without worries of an allergic reaction as all of our jewelry is nickel-free.
