At The Blonde Chaos, we're committed to offering a diverse range of materials to cater to every style and preference. Here's a breakdown of the materials we utilize:

Brass Goldplated, with E-coating

Gold plated jewelry involves applying a thin layer of gold onto a base metal, typically ranging from 0.175 to 2.5 microns thick. Our brass pieces undergo meticulous gold plating, using 14K, 16K, or 18K gold for added brilliance. Additionally, our chains receive an extra e-coating layer, ensuring durability and resistance to tarnishing, so your jewelry maintains its shine for longer.

Silver Goldplated

For those who adore the timeless elegance of silver, our gold-plated silver pieces offer the perfect blend of sophistication and charm.

18K. Goldfilled

Gold-filled jewelry is crafted by bonding a layer of gold onto a base metal core, typically brass. Gold-filled jewelry has a thicker gold layer than Gold-plated , regulated to contain at least 5% gold, offering greater durability.

Stainless Steel PVD Goldplated
Stainless steel is an alloy of iron, carbon, chromium, and sometimes other metals. It's highly resistant to corrosion, tarnishing, and scratches, making it a popular choice for jewellery.
The plating used for our stainless-steel jewellery is PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) Gold Plating: * PVD gold plating involves a process where a thin layer of gold is bonded to the surface of stainless steel through a vacuum coating process. This results in a more durable gold coating compared to traditional electroplating, as the gold is more securely bonded to the metal. It provides a longer-lasting gold appearance and better resistance to wear and tarnishing. Advantage: doesn’t tarnish that quickly. Disadvantage of stainless steel that the jewellery is always chunky and not as delicate as brass, gold, or silver jewellery.

Allergies and Sensitivity

We understand that metal allergies can be a concern for many, which is why we prioritize using hypoallergenic materials. While "hypoallergenic" indicates a reduced likelihood of causing skin irritation, we go the extra mile by offering products completely free or the lowest % of nickel. 

Tarnish and Care

Like any metal, brass may undergo subtle color changes over time. While our gold-plated layer provides protection, proper care is essential to maintain its luster. Avoid exposing your jewelry to harsh chemicals or activities such as showering or swimming, and be mindful to remove jewelry before applying perfume or lotions. Remember, the golden rule is to adorn your gold-plated jewelry last and remove it first.

For cleaning brass pieces, a gentle solution of soap and lukewarm water is often sufficient. Alternatively, consider using a specialized brass cleaner like Brasso along with a soft polishing cloth for added shine.
