Pure gold is 24K which is 100% gold. I work with 14K (58% pure gold) and and 18K(75% pure gold). The remaining is an alloy metal to give the gold its durability and strength.
The gold used is sourced from certified members of the following: Responsible Jewellery Council or Fairmined.org. These bodies certify that the gold that is mined is conflict free and that fair livable wages are paid to small-scale miners.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum fineness of 925.
Argentium® silver (.935) is more pure than Sterling silver(.925), brighter, hypoallergenic, nickel free, and extremely slow to tarnish under most conditions. It's also made entirely from recycled silver making it eco-friendly. Designs made with Argentium will be noted in the Additional Information section for that design.
All silver jewelry is NICKEL FREE
