Gold Plated Jewelry:
All Studio Grun gold plated jewelry is 100% brass with sterling silver ear posts beneath the gold plate. We use a much thicker gold plate than the industry standard, and once the pieces are plated, a clear protective finish is added to increase its longevity.
Studio Grun is proudly nickel free and our gold plated jewelry should hold it’s plating for years if the wearer takes proper care of the piece.
Gold Filled Jewelry:
Studio Grun uses gold filled chain on all necklace styles and earring threaders. Gold filled is an actual layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. Gold filled is not to be confused with gold plating and for that reason it is slightly more expensive than plated or vermeil jewelry, but should not be confused with solid gold jewelry.
