⁂ Albertine and Henriette Collection ⁂
Perfect gift idea: a jewellery set made of a pair of teardrop hoop earrings and a bracelet.
Both handmade in my workshop using 14k Gold-Filled.
>>>>>>>>>> What is Gold-Filled ? <<<<<<<<<<
Gold-Filled comprises a solid brass core over which 14k gold is mechanically bonded using heat and pressure.
The difference between Gold-Filled and Gold-Plated is the amount of gold used over the brass core. Gold-filled items must contain, by law, 5% or 1/20 of gold by weight. On the contrary, Gold-Plated items usually contain only a microscopic amount of gold and therefore the gold layer on Gold-Plated items can peel or flake very easily exposing the brass core underneath.
Because the gold layer on Gold-Filled items is so much thicker it will not peel or flake and lasts for years, yay!
>>>>>>>>>> Sizing <<<<<<<<<<
Height : 1.38" / 3.5cm
Width (widest part) : 1" / 2.5cm
The bracelet is adjustable from 16cm to 20cm thanks to a 14k Gold-Filled flat cable chain. It should therefore fit pretty much all wrist size!
However, as bracelets are all made to order, if you'd prefer to have it made exactly to your wrist size, it is also possible, just drop me a message.
>>>>>>>>>> Care tips <<<<<<<<<<
Very little tarnishing will be observed in 14K gold-filled, and it may take years before discolouration occurs.
The most common causes of tarnishing are: oxidation, exposure to sulfur, differing body chemistries and exposure to perfume, hairspray, cleaning agents etc.
So... all jewellery should be taken off before showering/swimming/exercising!
Taking care of your jewellery and proper storage are the best methods to avoid tarnishing.
The jewellery set will be shipped in a Kraft gift box (see pictures) - a perfect way to give it as a gift or to store it!
