Retro Blanc | 80s Pearl Pendant Figure 8 Bracelet
We were super thrilled while designing this--gave myself the challenge of giving an old-fashioned chain a fresh, young look.
This piece was inspired by a 70s Nina Ricci necklace my mother wore one recent day (last pic). It popped, my eyes popped... and then I said "I'm gonna remake that look for the 2020s!"

1/20 14K Gold-Filled
Known as the "next best thing to solid gold", 1/20 14K gold-filled is superior to gold-plated and gold vermeil in quality and price. It wears like solid gold. There is at least 5% of 14K gold by weight (or 1/20) permanently bonded to the base metal.
Not all gold-filled are created equal: for example most 18K Gold-filled, though higher in Karats, has a much thinner layer of softer gold (< 3%), making it more vulnerable to wear. This makes it - ironically - cheaper than high quality 14K Gold-filled.
High quality 1/20 14K gold-filled is fade-resistant and tarnish-resistant, lasting 10-30 years even with daily wear. This makes it very sustainable. It is safe for sensitive skin, and safe to keep on while you exercise, shower and sleep. Read about it here
