Yellow Gold, Rose Gold or White Gold Earrings
The Gold Earrings available in our online store are made of 14 or 18 carat gold. In 14 carat gold, the proportion of fine gold is 58.5 percent, in which case it is stamped with the mark 585, and in 18 carat gold, the proportion of fine gold is 75 percent, in which case it is stamped with the mark 750. Fine gold as such is too soft to make jewelry and is therefore hardened by mixing other metals into it.
By adding different metals to gold, different shades of gold are also made: yellow, white and rose gold. Yellow gold is obtained by mixing silver and copper with gold. The gold alloy called rose gold, red gold and rose gold, on the other hand, is obtained by increasing the copper content of the mixture. White gold, on the other hand, is obtained by mixing, for example, palladium with gold. The shade of white gold is gray or yellowish and sometimes white gold jewelry is rhodium plated to create a light surface. Rhodium plating means coating white gold or other metal with rhodium metal electrolytically.
Gold Earrings from the Silván Collection
In the range of Silván gold earrings, you can find a wide variety of gold earrings. We make all Silván earrings and other jewelry in our collection by hand in Laatukoru's own jewelry workshop in Hyvinkää, Finland. A dozen professional goldsmiths work at the workshop, each of whom has their own specialized area of expertise. All Silván earrings are made to the customer's order, and our ready-made jewelry models can also be modified to your liking. We also make completely unique diamond earrings based on our customers' wishes.
Silván gold earrings are always made from the best materials: 14 or 18 carat yellow, white and rose gold. The gold we use is 100 percent recycled and thanks to careful processing and cleaning, it is always free from the taxes of new gold. By using recycled gold, the valuable material is recovered and reused. This reduces the environmental impact of gold production and the need for new gold mining. The diamonds in our jewelry are also selected with exact criteria. We buy diamonds from large, European diamond exchanges that are committed to complying with industry standards. Diamonds are conflict-free and we require responsibility, such as observing human rights in the various stages of production, taking environmental impacts into account, maintaining safe and responsible work practices and supporting local communities. The diamond trade also does not support the financing of rebel movements. We always require a written certificate from our suppliers about the origin and ethics of the diamonds. The Silván diamond earrings come with a certificate of authenticity for the customer, which shows the quality and authenticity of the diamonds.
The Silván jewelry collection is named after Keijo Silván, the founder of Laatukoru, who started making jewelry in the basement of his home in 1972. Now in its third generation, the family business manufactures Silván diamond earrings and other diamond jewelry in the footsteps of its founder Keijo Silván.
Cleaning and Maintenance of Gold Earrings
Gold is an ideal material for earrings: it is easy to work with, has a beautiful color and luster, and does not change color much over time. Gold is also a safe material for the wearer of earrings, because gold jewelry is well tolerated and rarely causes allergic reactions. Although gold jewelry does not darken like, for example, silver jewelry, it can still get dirty and lose its shine. With the right maintenance interval and home care, you will keep your gold and diamond earrings sparkling for a long time. Gold earrings should be regularly serviced by a professional.
Gold jewelry brought to the Lautakoru store is sent to our workshop, where it is serviced by a professional goldsmith. At the workshop, the jewelry is cleaned, polished and possible gemstones are checked. Gold earrings are cleaned with detergents intended for cleaning jewelry and with an ultrasonic cleaner. The ultrasonic cleaner precisely cleans dirt even from those earrings that are difficult or impossible to clean by hand. In the processing of our goldsmiths, the earrings become almost as good as new.
In between maintenance, you should also regularly clean the gold earrings yourself. Gold earrings can be cleaned and polished with cleaning cloths intended for gold jewelry. The cloth can be used dry or moistened in mild soapy water. There are also detergents intended for gold jewelry, but home cleaning can also be done with ordinary dishwashing detergent. Always use mild soapy water and clean the jewelry after soaking for a while with a soft sponge or brush. When cleaning gold jewelry at home, it is important not to use abrasive substances or too hard brushes or sponges. After cleaning and rinsing, gold jewelry should be dried with a soft cloth.
Gold earrings are eternal and remain beautiful for a long time with regular cleaning and maintenance. Also pay attention to the correct storage of jewelry and avoid exposing them to excessive chemicals or temperature fluctuations. Always keep gold and diamond earrings separate from other jewelry and take them off when you go swimming or sauna
