Our gold and rose gold jewelry are 14kt gold filled. This can give jewelry a lifespan of up to 30 years with average care, and a lifetime with great care. Gold filled jewelry does not tarnish or make skin turn green like gold plated jewelry. Buying gold fill means you're doing a great service to the environment without having to destroy our planet further. With gold filled jewelry, you can get the favored properties of solid gold, like durability, and appearance, without having to mine new gold.
Mining new gold negatively affects our environment. A single ounce of minded gold can produce 20 tons of solid waste, containing toxins like mercury and cyanide. This can poison drinking water, destroy thousands of acres of wetlands and fisheries, reduce habitat populations in a variety of ecosystems, as well as other detriments to our environment.
Here at From Brooklyn With Love, we don’t just create jewelry, we source the correct materials for our guilt free body adornments, so that you never have to worry about where it came from, and who/what may have been irreversibly hurt in the process. Thank you for being on the right side of environmentally conscious fashion. <3
