But first...

What is Gold-Filled Jewelry?

Gold-filled jewelry is a unique and durable alternative to traditional gold-plated or costume jewelry. It involves a mechanical bonding process where a layer of gold is permanently affixed to the surface of a base metal, typically brass or copper. Unlike gold-plated pieces, which have a thinner layer of gold and may wear off over time, gold-filled jewelry boasts a more substantial layer, making it both high-quality and long-lasting.

The term "gold-filled" refers to the thick layer of gold mechanically bonded to the base metal. Here at Ashley Schenkein's Jewelry Design Collection, we use 14K and 18K gold, ensuring a sturdy foundation for the gold layer. This meticulous crafting process results in pieces that offer the luxurious appearance of solid gold without the hefty price tag.

Is it worth it to buy gold-filled jewelry?

Absolutely! Gold-filled jewelry offers the perfect blend of affordability and longevity. Unlike plated alternatives, our gold-filled pieces have a thicker layer of gold bonded to a base metal, ensuring durability without compromising on quality. Our commitment to excellence shines through in each meticulously crafted design, making the investment in gold-filled jewelry a wise and stylish choice.

How long does 14K gold-filled jewelry last?

One of the remarkable qualities of 14K gold-filled jewelry is its longevity. These pieces can last for years with proper care, maintaining their radiant luster. Our dedication to using high-quality materials ensures that your 14K gold-filled jewelry will withstand the test of time, becoming a cherished part of your collection and daily ensemble. As always, we recommend removing it when in water and placing it in a pouch or jewelry case when you’re not wearing it in order to maintain its luster. 

How do I choose gold stud earrings?

Choosing the perfect gold stud earrings involves a blend of personal style and practical considerations. Most of our gold-filled pieces boast a timeless classic. These versatile earrings are a staple for everyday wear, effortlessly transitioning from casual to elegant settings. 

When selecting gold stud earrings, consider your style preferences and the occasions you'll wear them. The key is to find a pair that resonates with your personality while offering the versatility to complement various looks. We personally love wearing a statement pair of earrings with a simple necklace for an elevated day time look even with a white tee shirt and jeans. 

Can gold-filled jewelry be worn all the time?

You bet! We understand that jewelry should be an extension of your style, worn seamlessly from day to night. Take, for example, our gold-filled huggies. These 18K gold-filled huggies are a classic choice for everyday wear and versatile enough for multiple piercings. Their rounded edges provide a soft touch, ensuring comfort throughout extended wear. For example, you could wear them in your main piercing for day time wear and then move them to a second or third piercing while adding a bigger pair of gold hoop earrings or a statement pair of earrings to transition into the night. Many of our earrings can truly be worn from day - to - night while switching up your clothes and other accessories. Embrace the idea that your favorite pieces should accompany you through all of life's moments.
