WHAT IS 14k GOLD FILL? 14k gold fill is a high quality yet affordable alternative to solid gold. 14k gold fill is a strictly regulated process by the federal trade commission that involves pressure bonding layers of solid gold to a core of high quality jewelers brass. Gold fill has 100x more gold than gold plated which makes gold fill significantly longer lasting and more tarnish resistant than gold plating. 

 

WILL MY JEWELRY TARNISH OR TURN MY FINGER GREEN? Derive Jewelry uses 14k gold fill, 14k rose gold fill and sterling silver. All fine metals can tarnish in time- so it is recommended to avoid having your jewelry come in contact with harsh chemicals such as chlorine which can cause tarnish. As far as turning your skin green, 14k gold fill and sterling silver are not known to cause this. However, your personal body chemistry and PH levels could cause oxidation in some cases. Lotions, makeup, body sweat and natural body oils can also be a factor if this happens with your jewelry. 

 

JEWELRY CARE: We recommend to store your jewelry in a dry place. Your pieces can be cleaned using warm sudsy water and a soft cloth. You can also use polishing cloths on your jewelry to clean and shine them up. 

 

STONES: We use a variety of natural stones and no two will be identical. Every piece is made to order, including stone selection which means your piece will be unique in its own way and may not match the product photography photos exactly.
