About Our Metals
Beaucoup de Beads uses Sterling Silver also known as 925 Sterling Silver.
Sterling Silver is is an alloy of pure silver containing 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper or other alloy which increases its hardness and strength. Metals containing less than 92.5 percent silver are not sterling silver.
14K Gold Filled
Beaucoup de Beads uses 14K Gold filled for our pieces.
14K Gold filled (sometimes labeled "GF" by jewelers) is a metal composed of a thick solid layer of 14K Gold that is bonded to a core base metal through heat and pressure. Gold filled jewelry will not wear off over time and if taken care of properly it can last a lifetime.
14K Rose Gold Filled
Beaucoup de Beads uses 14K Rose Gold filled for our pieces.
Rose gold is a type of coloured gold that has a distinctive pinkish hue. The pink comes from mixing pure gold with copper. The process of creating rose gold filled is the same as gold filled. 14K rose gold is bonded to the surface of the core metal with heat and pressure. This means our jewelry is very easy to care for and will maintain its golden shine for a lifetime.
