Our Gold and Jewelry
The “k” stands for karat, a unit used to measure the purity of gold. It indicates the percentage of pure gold in the jewelry. For instance, 14k gold contains 58.5% gold, while 18k gold has 75% gold.
Store your gold jewelry in individual soft pouches or separate compartments in a jewelry box to avoid scratches and tangles. Keep it away from harder metals that could cause abrasions.
Pure gold doesn’t tarnish, but gold alloys with other metals may. However, with proper care, gold jewelry should maintain its luster for years. If discoloration occurs, a professional jeweler can restore its original shine.
It is best to avoid wearing gold jewelry while swimming in chlorinated water or taking a shower. Harsh chemicals and soaps can potentially damage the jewelry’s surface and lead to discoloration.
Yes, most gold rings can be resized by a skilled jeweler. However, resizing may be limited based on the design and intricacy of the ring.
Gold is generally hypoallergenic, but some alloys used in gold jewelry may cause skin reactions in some individuals. Consider choosing higher-karat gold (e.g., 18k or 24k) as they contain fewer allergenic metals.
