Gold-plated earrings are safe if you take proper care of them. More regarding that, we talk in our other blogs about how to clean your gold-plated earrings and prolong their life.

To share a bit more insight into our process of creation and how our gold-plated earrings are ok for sensitive ears, let’s dive deeper into what we do.

  • First, we gather inspiration. We research compelling ancient designs, architecture, and art and combine them into our gold-plated jewelry. 
  • Once the 3D modeling process is done, our craftsmen gild each piece until it reaches its perfect state. It is cleaned with ultrasound and washed and degreased, it is prepared to be layered with a thick layer of gold.
  • After each piece receives its noble treatment with gold, we galvanize it to make sure the gold adapts to every single surface. This way, the thick gold layer protects the brass from the external elements and ensures longevity. 
  • At Agapé, we use a 3-micron gold layer. That is a lot thicker than the standard 0.5 or 1 micron of gold which is why we are confident in our jewelry’s quality and offer a 2-year warranty. 
  • To give brass its consistency, just before the gold plating, our jewelry is immersed in an alkaline tube. The gold then gives the jewelry its irresistible shine and a water-resistant finish.

As a result of our high-quality work, we confidently offer a two-year warranty against oxidation and gilding defects for our entire line of jewelry. You can buy with the assurance that you will fully enjoy and appreciate the true worth of our pieces.
