We use either 10K gold or 14K gold, each piece is marked or stamped noting the specific karat. Please refer to the product page where the gold karat is noted for items too small to stamp (such as safety pin earrings or other tiny styles). Both 10k and 14K gold are beautiful and durable for everyday wear, it scratches less and lives your life with you—be it at the gym, in the shower or on a date.
Although our jewelry is fabricated in Los Angeles and Italy, the metals themselves, recycled and newly-mined, may originate from different parts of the world. We invest in manufacturers and suppliers who communicate with us about their operations and supply chain, so that we have assurances that our metals are consciously sourced. Whenever possible, we try to get verification that the metals are traceable to suppliers who are certified against international best practices such as the Responsible Jewelry Council.
Our genuine precious and semi-precious gems are sourced from a family-owned lapidary in Jaipur, India as well as from a downtown Los Angeles supplier who are members of the American Gem Trade Association.
