The Klassics Collection
The Klassics gold jewelry collection is designed to be just the way it sounds: classic. All pieces included in this collection are pure 10k gold – they are not filled, plated or dipped. Jewelry manufactured from 10k gold does not react with other elements to create tarnish, resulting in a lustrous finish day-in and day-out.
This precious metal is lustrous and never goes out of style. It is suited for everyday use because 10k gold is more durable and less likely to bend than higher-karat gold jewelry, and is more affordable. The Klassics collection offers pieces in both traditional 10k yellow gold as well as 10k white gold for a more modern and relevant look, and specializes in classic hoop earrings and basic chains.
The 10k gold Klassics earring collection includes hoops in all sizes, millimeters and diameters. From the most affordable endless hoop earring to the more fashionable larger earrings, all are made for pierced ears and finished with strong 10k gold closures. They are the perfect gift for anyone, and they are the building blocks of a basic jewelry wardrobe. Smaller hoop earrings can be worn for a more subtle look, or throw on a pair of bigger hoops when you feel like being noticed – and complimented. Regardless of age, occasion, or decade, a hoop earring is always appropriate. Feel secure knowing that you are wearing real karat gold jewelry in a time-honored design.
The 10k gold Klassics basic chain collection offers a comprehensive selection, including all of the essential and necessary styles to add to your everyday jewelry wardrobe. These chains come in a variety of lengths and millimeter sizes, and are offered in both white and yellow gold. Durable box chains are perfect for pendants or charms, and have a clean, modern look. Or opt for the delicately elegant Singapore chain, in a twisted design that never fails to catch the light. The snake chain is shiny and sleek - and strong enough to hold your heavier pieces so you don’t have to worry. Our solid diamond-cut rope chains are hand-made, sturdy, and substantial. All of the 10k gold chains in this collection are perfect to wear with your favorite collectible, yet are equally beautiful worn alone to add a subtle gleam to any outfit.
There is a piece of Klassics 10k gold jewelry for everyone. These are the pieces that you reach for every day, the gifts you receive when you’re beginning your own special gold jewelry collection, and the pieces you keep adding to your jewelry box for a selection that is timeless.
Karat Gold is a “noble metal” meaning it has very special and enduring properties. Hence, it has been long sought after through the ages and used as adornment in jewelry, coinage, and the arts.
Gold does not rust, tarnish, or corrode, and with basic care, gold “glows” for years to come. Since gold is malleable, ductile and has tenacity, it can be shaped, formed and molded into almost any design that will hold its definition. Gold is also hypoallergenic.
“Pure Gold” or “Fine Gold” is known as 24k gold, which indicates that it is entirely gold, 24 parts out of 24. However, most jewelry is made from either 18k gold, 14k gold or 10k gold. While yellow gold is the most traditional color, by mixing gold with other alloys, jewelers can create stunning shades of gold: white gold, pink gold, rose gold, orange gold and even green gold are just some of the many colors that are becoming more available.
Pure gold is “alloyed” or mixed with other metals for added strength, hardness and to produce a variety of colors. The percentage of gold to the total weight of gold plus alloy is what is referred to as gold’s “karatage” or the karat of gold. The use of the term “solid gold” always refers to an item of gold that is solidly of gold or of a gold alloy throughout. In the United States, “karat” with a “K” refers to the quality of the gold.
Karatage is one of the most important factors to consider when buying gold.
Higher karatage gold jewelry products offer heightened intrinsic value that is higher than the lower karatage equivalents. For example, one gram of 14k gold is more valuable than one gram of 10k gold. Higher karatage gold also offers a heightened emotional perceived value.
Karatage is often perceived as a seal of quality rather than a mathematical reference to percentage of gold. This is true to the extent that the U.S. laws mandate a minimum (41.7% for 10k Gold) amount of karatage in order to be legally called “gold.”
Cleaning and Caring for your Gold Jewelry
If treated carefully, a gold jewelry item can last a lifetime and even handed down to future generations. Gold is lasting and durable but can get scratched or dented if treated roughly. This is particularly true of items worn on the hands like rings and bracelets that are prone to a lot of knocks, so remove these pieces before any type of strenuous activity.
Also, beware of chemicals. Gold’s worst enemy is chlorine. Keep your gold jewelry away from chlorinated cleaning products and out of swimming pools, etc. On a related note, acids, abrasives and other harsh chemicals found in some common household cleaning solutions can weaken your jewelry or damage its finish. It is best to remove all gold jewelry when handling these types of products.
Gold can lose its luster over time if repeatedly exposed to dust, moisture, perspiration and makeup. Make sure to clean your jewelry regularly to remove these substances; you can use a cleaning solution of lukewarm water and a mild soap. After cleaning and rinsing, always dry and polish jewelry with a chamois or soft cloth to avoid scratches and to bring out its shine.
Proper storage is as important as cleaning. Protect your gold jewelry by storing it safely in a jewelry box or keeping it wrapped in a soft cloth when not being worn.
The purity of gold is measured in karats. Pure gold measures 24 karats but is too soft in this state to be used effectively in jewelry. So it is alloyed with other metals--silver, copper, nickel, and zinc--to increase its strength and durability. Common measurements once the alloy is added are 18 karat (75% gold), 14 karat (58%), and 10 karat (47.7%). In the United States, the legal karat limit for the metal to still be considered gold is 10 karats. A higher karat measurement in gold content indicates a greater value of the jewelry piece. Gold jewelry should always be stamped with the karat mark, either 18k, 750 (European marking for 18k), 14k, 585 (European marking for 14k), or 10k. In addition, to assure its quality, the piece should be stamped with the manufacturer's trademark or country of origin.
The color of gold may vary based off of the type of metal alloy included and the percentage of the metal alloy used. Most commonly, gold is available in yellow, white, and rose coloring.
Yellow gold is the most common color and is usually alloyed with silver and copper. Yellow and white gold are similar in strength and malleability, making them perfect for jewelry that is worn daily.
White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has vastly different properties.
Rose-colored gold is alloyed with copper and is often used to accent white or yellow gold. The saturation of color varies from piece to piece and according to gold content.
Caring For Your Gold Jewelry
To keep gold shining and scratch-free, avoid contact with chlorine and other harsh chemicals. Do not wear jewelry during rough work and be sure to store it in a fabric-lined jewelry box or pouch. To clean gold jewelry, use warm water, a mild soap, and a soft bristled brush, if needed.
