Our Materials

 

14k Gold-Filled

A practical balance between cost and quality, our gold-filled pieces have a thick layer of 14k gold, heat and pressure bonded to a high-quality brass core. They contain much more real gold than regular gold-plating.

14k Rose Gold-Filled

Similar to yellow gold-filled, rose gold filled has a bit of copper added to the alloy to give it a rosy hue.

Sterling Silver

Solid, precious metal that lasts forever. It darkens with time, but can be polished up. Oils from your skin help prevent silver tarnish... so wear it often!

14k Gold

Some of our designs are offered in solid 14k gold (585). Traditional precious metals for your special jewelry pieces. Available in Yellow, Rose and White colors.

If you want your jewelry in specific material isn't listed, please send us a message.

 

What’s the difference between Gold-FIlled, Gold-Plated and Solid gold?

Solid Gold

Pure gold, alloyed with stronger metals, all the way through. Traditional expensive Gold alloy.

Gold Filled

Thick gold layer pressure bonded to a core of high-quality brass.

Gold Plated

Thin gold layer “flashed” onto metal core with electrical current. Any plated piece is gold vermeil which has a much thicker gold layer. Not used in Boutique Baltique pieces.
