Gold, platinum, and silver are used regularly in our fine jewelry.

Gold: Pure gold is too soft for everyday wear, so it is alloyed with other metals. Karatage, denoted by a number followed by "k" indicates purity, or how much of the metal in a piece of jewelry is gold. 24 karat is 100% gold. 18 karat is 75% gold. 14 karat is 58.3% gold. 10 karat is 41.7% gold.

Platinum: The rarest of all precious metals, platinum is an extremely popular metal for jewelry. It's durable, resists tarnishing and is hypo-allergenic.

Silver: Sterling silver is one of the most popular, affordable, and durable metals. While natural silver is harder than natural gold, silver needs to be alloyed to create jewelry. Our silver is nickel-free.
