4 Reasons to Buy Solid Gold Jewelry | Elevate Your Style | Estella Collection

All that glitters is not, in fact, gold. We're going to walk you through few of the reasons solid gold jewelry outshines fast fashion jewelry styles like vermeil, gold-plated, and gold-filled jewelry.

  1. Materials
  2. Durability
  3. Versatility
  4. Sustainability

WHAT IS SOLID GOLD JEWELRY? 

Solid gold jewelry is made of a carefully blended gold alloy, a shiny and expensive metal that has been prized for its beauty and durability for thousands of years. Gold is a finite resource that increases in value over time, making it an excellent investment. On the other hand, plated or filled jewelry is made of a base metal such as brass, titanium, or copper that has a thin layer of gold on top. This type of jewelry contains very little gold, so it isn't as valuable and will not hold its value over time.

 

DURABILITY OF SOLID GOLD JEWELRY

Solid gold jewelry is more durable than plated or filled jewelry. Gold is a pure and high-quality metal that resists tarnishing and corrosion. It will retain its beauty and shine for many years, even with regular wear. In contrast, plated or filled jewelry can wear away over time, exposing the base metal underneath and losing its luster.

VERSATILITY OF SOLID GOLD JEWELRY

When it comes to versatility, solid gold jewelry is the way to go. While you can wear solid gold with any outfit, plated and filled jewelry have a more limited range of styles. That's because they're not pure or high-quality metals and can't be molded into different designs like solid gold. You can wear solid gold jewelry on any occasion, whether it's a special event or just another day at the office. Plated and filled jewelry may be out of place at certain functions, so if you're looking for something that will work for just about any situation, go with a solid gold piece.

SUSTAINABILITY OF SOLID GOLD JEWELRY

Solid gold is also the more environmentally friendly jewelry option: it’s more sustainable than plated or filled jewelry, and has a range of benefits that make it a better choice for your collection. Plated and filled jewelry often contains metals such as nickel, lead, and zinc, which can be hazardous when released into the environment or your skin. 

Solid gold jewelry lasts longer and is much more valuable than plated or filled jewelry. This reduces the amount of resources that need to be used to create new jewelry, and also reduces the amount of jewelry that ends up in landfills. Solid gold stands the test of time; you’ll have beautiful pieces to wear for years to come.

 

INVEST IN SOLID GOLD  

Don’t get us wrong, plated jewelry can be cute and cost-effective, but fast fashion is simply not our style. Solid gold jewelry is the way to go for those who value beauty, sustainability, and durability in their wardrobe.
