Know your materials
There are certain things to know before buying gold jewelry which will make shopping for jewelry online easier. All our jewelry is made using vermeil gold and real silver, for the finest quality finish. Below, we will break down the details of what you should look for before making a purchase.
Gold Vermeil Jewelry
This is a high-quality version of gold plating that provides both long-lasting durability and affordability. If solid gold is out of your budget, then invest in some gold vermeil jewelry. To be called "vermeil", The gold must be at least 10K and it’s much higher quality than gold plating. Higher-end brands like us at Filippo Loreti use this technique as it keeps prices low but ensures the quality is high. It’s also one of the most long-lasting options. The gold will stay radiant and you’ll be able to enjoy your jewelry for years to come.
Sterling silver jewelry
If you see the words sterling silver when you’re shopping for jewelry, you can guarantee that the quality will be good. It is the standard for beautiful high-quality silver jewelry. At over 90% pure silver, it won’t wear down with age and will stand the test of time. Pure silver, on the other hand, is soft, malleable, and easily damaged, which is why sterling silver is much more covetable than solid silver.
Go straight to the source
The brilliant thing about shopping for jewelry online is that you’re often going straight to the source. You won’t need to pay markups for shop assistants and the cost of renting a physical store. So you’ll often be getting a better deal. At Filippo Loreti we use the finest materials and the most experienced jewelers, but we sell directly to you, so we don’t add unnecessary markups.
