WHAT IS SOLID GOLD JEWELLERY?
Solid gold jewellery is made entirely of a gold alloy, rather than a gold plated base metal. This means it’s less likely to tarnish or discolour over time - making it the perfect material to invest in for your everyday jewellery look!
IS ASTRID & MIYU JEWELLERY SOLID GOLD?
Our jewellery is made from either 18k Gold Plated Sterling Silver or Brass, or from 14k Solid Gold. We always specify what materials are made out from, so make sure you look out for the ‘Details’ section on every product page.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOLD PLATED & SOLID GOLD?
Ever wondered the difference between gold plated and solid gold? The difference is that solid gold is gold throughout the whole piece, whereas gold plated jewellery has a base metal of brass or sterling silver. Although solid gold is more of an investment, the quality of our pieces is at the forefront of everything we create - so both solid gold and gold plated A&M jewellery is made for you to treasure and wear everyday.
Solid gold is made from a solid gold alloy, meaning it will last longer in your collection. The gold is also 100% recycled, making it a conscious choice for your jewellery box (without compromising on quality). Our Solid Gold Collection is full of timeless classics that you’ll keep for years to come, pefect for those special moments.
While solid gold is more of an investment, our Gold Plated Collection is just as special. Add personality, fun and sparkle to your jewellery box with our gold plated options. Whether that’s a Zodiac Necklace, Initial Pendant, your everyday pair of huggies or bold hoops - compliment your jewellery collection with the A&M pieces you love.
