Ethical solid gold from conflict-free suppliers

We only use real, solid 14K and 18K gold, sourced from verified conflict-free suppliers. The number of karats tells you how many 24ths of the total piece is pure gold (so 18 karats is 18/24 parts, or 75%, pure gold).

Our vermeil is made of 14K gold with a thickness of over 2.5 microns when officially, vermeil requires at least 10K gold with a thickness of 1.5 microns — v fancy.
