Almost all of our jewelry is made with 14k gold filled materials and our stones are set in 24k gold vermeil (24k gold over sterling silver base). Gold vermeil and gold filled is a high quality alternative to solid gold.
Gold filled is a thin layer of gold that is bonded to brass through heat and high pressure. Gold filled is much higher quality than gold plating and it is tarnish resistant, if you take proper care of your jewelry. It is more affordable and also safe for most people with sensitive skin.
To maintain the quality of your C.Henry jewelry, please be sure to avoid water, perfumes, and any other harsh chemicals from coming in direct contact with your jewelry. It's also best to store your jewelry in a cool, dry place.
