Things to know
MY PERFECT WORLD OF IMPERFECTIONS
Each and every piece of jewellery is crafted by me and by hand. As such there may be slight differences and variations between pieces. This makes your jewellery unique. Alot of the measurements on the site are approximate to the nearest millimetre or centimetre.
All Alison Fern Jewellery is handcrafted to order for you, therefore there is usually a limited stock or a piece is made when an order is received. You will be personally notified with 24 hours of placing your order of the lead time. Please contact me, prior to placing your order if it is urgent and I will do my upmost to work to your deadline!
I also do gift vouchers and at the moment they are available for any amount for any denomination, please get in touch via the contact page to order.
My focus is on quality so, ALL the silver used is sterling silver and ALL the gold is 14k gold filled.
Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This gives the silver more strength and high precious metal content, ideal for jewellery.
Gold filled is an actual layer of gold, pressure bonded to another metal, usually jewellers brass. The Gold used is usually 14 carat.
Gold-filled is made from solid ‘Gold’ and ‘filled’ with other alloys such a jewellers brass. It wears like solid gold because its outer surface is solid gold. Gold-filled is created by using heat and pressure to fuse a layer of Karat Gold to a copper, brass or other base metal and the bond produced is a permanent one.
Gold-filled offers all the same physical characteristics as solid Gold such as beauty, durability, and strength, but at a fraction of the cost. With reasonable care is will last a lifetime. It is more valuable than gold plated and tarnish resistant. It is a reasonably priced, quality alternative to solid gold.
If you can wear gold, you can wear gold filled without any allergic reaction.
Caring for sterling silver and gold filled items is the same as caring for any precious and semi-precious metal jewellery. Simply keep away from chemicals, clean regularly with mildly sudsy water, rinse well and pat dry with a non-scratching cloth.
