What materials do you use in your jewelry?
Gold-filled: This is a technique used to make jewelry by combining solid 14k solid gold with another metal. Gold filled is a pressure bonded layer of gold that has 100x more gold than plated jewelry. It is durable, won't chip or flake, is tarnish resistant, and is a great alternative to solid gold jewelry at an affordable price. It looks beautiful, and has a finish that will last years if cared for properly.
Sterling Silver: 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. It's the other metals, primarily copper, that cause sterling silver to tarnish. The copper reacts to moisture and sulfur in the air, causing tarnishing reaction.
Do you ever use gold plated jewelry?
We cannot engrave on gold plated jewelry because it will flake the surface. We will never use gold plated jewelry simply because it is not a high-quality option for engraving and everyday wear.

What is hand engraving and why is it different than other jewelry customization techniques?
We share this info in our blog here.
What does it mean that my "engraving with darken over time"?
If you have customized a gold-filled or sterling silver pendant, because of the nature of the way these jewelry materials are made, the engraving cuts into the surface and reveals the metal beneath. Over time, the engraving will darken as the metals oxidize. The natural darkening of your engraving will make the customization easier to read over time. Don't want the darkening? Customize one of our solid 14k gold options!
