Some F.Y.I you'd need to know about costume jewelry...
Gold-filled products are a great alternative to the more expensive solid karat gold. It's high in quality & with proper care and storage, you will have affordable jewelry that lasts. Gold-filled is an actual layer of gold pressure bonded to another metal such as brass. It’s not to be confused with gold-plating as filled literally has 100% more gold than gold-plating. Gold-filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant if taken care properly.
Most people who can wear gold can wear gold-filled without worries of any allergic reaction to the jewelry. Solid gold is of course an exquisite piece of jewelry, but gold-filled is an amazing (and affordable!), quality alternative.
We also use raw brass, bronze, plated, oxidized, or pewter metals in our jewelry designs. These metals have a tendency to naturally patina over time, which gives each piece a unique character. To prevent this, simply store in an airtight container and apply the care tips given.
