ONE SIX FIVE GOLD GUIDE

Let's Talk Gold!

Most ONE SIX FIVE jewelry is handmade with 14k gold-filled material. We know what you’re thinking… what exactly does gold-filled mean?

Our 14k gold-filled material is comprised of an inner brass core, coated with an outer sleeve of 14k gold, making gold 5% of the total item weight. Gold-filled jewelry is higher in quality and weight than gold-plated jewelry, giving each piece longer life and finer luster. 

While the majority of our handmade collection is 14k gold-filled, we also have jewelry with sterling silver, vermeil and gold-plated finishes. We utilize gold-plating finishes for some larger pieces in our collection, like the Frida earrings, to help maintain an accessible price point. As for a vermeil finish, our Adele earrings are a prime example.

We use quality materials and select the type of finish for each piece with you in mind! To help, we made this handy Gold Guide to show the difference between each type of finish in the ONE SIX FIVE Jewelry collection. Take a peek before you shop our new spring collection!

Stay golden,
Kaleigh + Claire
