Solid 14k Gold
We make our solid gold jewelry with 14k gold. Why? 18k or 24k gold is softer and will show signs of wear more easily. Our customers tend to wear their Goddess pieces every day; 14k provides superior durability and a more desirable color.
To maintain your solid gold’s luster, gently clean your pieces after wear with your Awe polishing cloth and store in your Awe velvet pouch.
14k Yellow Gold Vermeil
We’ve perfected our vermeil technique for superior durability with an innovative oxygen bathing technique that improves vermeil adherence 3x. In this process, we coat a 925 sterling silver base with 3 microns of our signature 14k Hamilton yellow gold. The 2 microns used by other jewelers is not enough for our standards.
Remove vermeil pieces before exercising, showering, or swimming. Gently clean your pieces after wear with your Awe polishing cloth and store in your Awe velvet pouch.
Our 925 sterling silver is free of nickel and other allergenic metals. We coat our silver in rhodium — among the rarest of precious metals — which gives a superior luster and durability.
Avoid water when wearing sterling silver, which can cause it to oxidize. Gently clean your pieces after wear with your Awe polishing cloth and store in your Awe velvet pouch.
Diamonds and Gemstones
We demand that our diamond and gemstone suppliers adhere to the Kimberley Process and the World Diamond Council’s System of Warranties, which prevents the distribution of conflict gemstones and blood diamonds. Our diamonds and gemstones are ones you can trust.
To keep your gemstones brilliant, clean gently in warm water with a soft brush.
