1. 9k Gold:

9kt gold jewelry offers a nice balance between affordability and durability. Made from 37.5% pure gold alloyed with other metals, it's more scratch-resistant than higher karat gold but retains a luxurious gold look. While not quite as valuable as higher karat gold, 9kt gold is a popular choice for everyday pieces you can treasure for years to come.


2. Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver jewelry is a beautiful and affordable choice. It's made from 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% of another metal, usually copper, for added strength and durability. Silver tarnishes naturally over time, but it's easily cleaned to restore its shine. Sterling silver offers a timeless look and pairs well with various styles.


3. Micron Gold Plated:

In jewelry, micron gold plating refers to a method of applying a thin layer of real gold onto a base metal, usually brass or silver. Here's a breakdown of the terms:

  • Micron: A micron is a unit of length equal to one-thousandth of a millimeter (0.001 mm). It's a very small measurement, but it's the standard way to describe the thickness of gold plating on jewelry.

  • Micron Gold Plating: When jewelry is described as "micron gold plated," it means it has a layer of real gold applied with a thickness measured in microns. The thicker the gold layer (in microns), the more durable and valuable the plating typically is.

Here's a helpful comparison:

  • Flash Plating (less than 0.175 microns): This is an extremely thin layer of gold, just enough to give a golden color. It's the least durable option and can wear off quickly.
  • Micron Plating (above 0.5 microns): This is a more substantial layer of gold that offers better durability and can last for years with proper care.
  • In Steel Magnolia: Our pieces has a 1 Micron layer, which means they are durable and long lasting
