14 carat solid gold - valuable real jewelery for every occasion
Sustainable solid gold - one thing leads to another: Responsibility meets value meets beauty meets class. We at fejn rely on 14K solid gold with a high purity factor. But what does that actually mean for gold jewelry? And what makes 14 carat solid gold so special? What does this specification mean anyway? The number in front of the word "karat" stands for the gold alloy, i.e. the mixture of the gold. Since pure gold would be too soft for jewelry processing and wearing, it is melted together with other metals. The term "14 carat gold" refers to the so-called fineness of the gold. This amounts to 58.5 percent for 14 carat. The corresponding stamp for the 585 gold value can also be found on our fejn solid gold jewelry. By the way, these are not only 14 karat, but also made from recycled gold. As with all our jewelry, we place great value on sustainability in our 585 gold jewelry.
Solid Gold: 585, 725 etc. – Which number says what?
As explained above, the number printed on the jewelry describes the purity grade of gold. Gold jewelry with 585 value corresponds to 14 carat gold fused with precious metal, such as copper and silver. The 14-carat gold price here is about 31 €/g. Somewhat cheaper, harder, but also paler in color, as a lower gold content predominates, is 375 or 333 gold, i.e. 8 and 9 carat respectively. In addition to copper and silver, zinc and tin are often added. 18 carat gold in turn corresponds to 75 percent fine gold and 25 percent silver or copper. 916 gold (22 carat) and 999 gold (24 carat) are too soft for jewelry and are used in the field of investment gold, for example for bars and coins. By the way, strictly speaking, 333 gold jewelry cannot be called gold jewelry at all. According to the law, a minimum fineness of at least 375 is necessary to be allowed to speak of gold jewelry.
Gold jewelry 585: We rely on 14 carat gold
Solid Gold Jewelry with 14 karat is not only beautiful, but also has an advantage: gold jewelry with 585 value looks just as high quality as more high karat gold, but due to the higher percentage admixture with other metals, it is much more resistant and at the same time also more affordable than jewelry with more karat. This makes it particularly suitable for everyday use. So you can wear your favorite pieces to any occasion without hesitation. Even sunbathing or sports can not harm the 14 carat solid gold jewelry from fejn. It is therefore worthwhile in any case instead of fashion jewelry, timeless, valuable pieces of gold (585) to buy. Unlike costume jewelry, sustainable jewelry made of precious metals such as solid gold does not lose its luster as quickly, does not tarnish irretrievably or break and then have to be disposed of. Our 14 K solid gold jewelry is an investment forever and therefore an absolutely sustainable purchase.
Gold jewelry: Ladies love 585 gold
14 karat solid gold or yellow gold alloys typically consist of copper and silver in addition to 58.5% fine gold. The exact shade of gold may vary slightly depending on the manufacturer, the degree of hardness, or the exact shade and finish selected by the particular goldsmith. 585 rose gold alloys are also 58.5% fine gold. However, the copper content is higher than the silver content. Sometimes there is even no silver at all. Copper is naturally reddish in color, providing the typical reddish tone of the alloy. Again, the shade of rose gold can vary depending on the manufacturer, hardness level, and the like. Rose gold is light red gold. 585 white gold alloys also contain 58.5% fine gold. Here the silver color is created by the precious metal silver in a mixture with nickel (Attention! Here you should always ask! Except with us - because of course we don't use nickel!) or palladium. Again, the white gold hue can vary slightly. Often white gold jewelry is coated with rhodium after production. This creates an even shine.

Solid Gold: Anything that pleases is allowed
Not only is the material timeless, but the designs of our sustainable real gold pieces also have no expiration date. While the trend in the 80s was for rather opulent arm jewelry, in the 2000s, for example, people wore charm bracelets that delighted with small, discreet pendants. Just before that, in the 90s, necklaces couldn't be tight enough - a short time later, long chains replaced tight chokers in fashion. Today, anything that pleases is allowed in the jewelry world. And because we at fejn jewelry live sustainability through and through, our timeless designs are also visually your companion forever.
585 Gold: The right care for your jewelry
The good news is that real gold can be cleaned easily with a solution of warm water and dishwashing detergent or with a mild soap. To do this, simply place your 14 K solid gold jewelry in a warm bath for 15 minutes and let it soak. Using a soft toothbrush, you can easily remove dirt particles from your favorite pieces. For smaller and particularly delicate pieces of jewelry, such as rings, you should swirl the water a little. In this way, you can also remove dirt from small recesses. After cleaning, you should rinse the jewelry made of 14 carat solid gold under clear water and dry it. Solid gold can be given a special shine by using a soft jewelry cleaning cloth. For daily cleaning of your favorite 14 carat solid gold jewelry, it is even enough to clean it with a soft cloth or a gold cleaning cloth. After wearing, gently rub your Solid Gold jewelry with a cloth. These timeless pieces stay at their best when stored in a sealed jewelry box, as airtight as possible.
Tips for caring for 14 karat solid gold in everyday life
Tend to keep your jewelry away from water in everyday life. Take it off when you take a shower, swim your laps in salt or chlorinated water. As a general rule, jewelry is the last thing to be put on and the first thing to be taken off. Because: cosmetics, creams and perfume do not belong on your jewelry - so avoid contact as much as possible. Even robust 14 K solid gold should be stored away from light, dry and individually. Velvety little bags in a dark box are particularly suitable. In our online store you will also find a very special way to store your precious 14 karat solid gold jewelry: Our Furoshikis. A Furoshiki is a 25x25cm square cloth. It is mainly used in Japan as a traditional packaging and carrying bag - for example for gifts or clothes. You can find many different designs in our online store or also in our store in Cologne. The cloths are beautiful, individual and sustainable, because they can be used again and again. We source our furoshikis from a local fairtrade factory in India, sustainably made from recycled saris.
