14 carat solid gold - valuable fine jewelry for every occasion
Sustainable solid gold - one thing leads to another: responsibility meets value meets beauty meets class. At fejn, we rely on 14K solid gold with a high purity factor. But what does that actually mean for gold jewellery? And what makes 14k solid gold so special? What does this statement even mean? The number in front of the word "karat" stands for the gold alloy, i.e. for the mixture of gold. Since pure gold would be too soft for jewelry processing and wearing the pieces, it is melted together with other metals. The designation "14 Karat Gold" refers to the so-called fineness of the gold. This is 58.5 percent for 14 carats. You will also find the corresponding stamp for the 585 gold value on our fejn solid gold jewelry. These are not only 14 carat, but also made from recycled gold As with all our jewelry, we attach great importance to sustainability with our gold jewelry with 585 value .
Solid Gold: 585, 725 etc. – Which number says what?
As explained above, the number printed on the jewelry describes the purity of the gold. Gold jewelery with a value of 585 corresponds to 14 karat gold fused with precious metals such as copper and silver. The 14-karat gold price here is around €31/g. 375 or 333 gold, i.e. 8 or 9 carats, is a little cheaper, harder, but also paler in color because there is less gold. In addition to copper and silver, zinc and tin are often melted here. 18 carat gold corresponds to 75 percent fine gold and 25 percent silver or copper. 916 (22 karat) and 999 (24 karat) gold are too soft for jewelry and are used in investment gold such as bars and coins. By the way: Strictly speaking, 333 gold jewelery cannot be called gold jewelery at all. According to the law, a minimum fineness of at least 375 is required to be allowed to speak of gold jewelry.
Gold jewelry 585: We rely on 14 carat gold
Solid gold jewelry with 14 carat is not only beautiful, but also has an advantage: gold jewelry with a value of 585 looks just as high-quality as higher-carat gold, but is much more resistant and at the same time more affordable than jewelry with more metals due to the higher percentage of other metals added Carat. This makes it particularly suitable for everyday use. So you can wear your favorite pieces for every occasion without hesitation. Even sunbathing or sports cannot harm the 14 carat solid gold real jewelery from fejn. In any case, it is worth buying timeless, valuable pieces of gold (585) instead of fashion jewellery. Unlike fashion jewellery, sustainable jewelery made of precious metals such as solid gold does not lose its shine as quickly, does not irretrievably tarnish or break and then has to be disposed of. Our 14 K solid gold jewelery is an investment for ever and therefore an absolutely sustainable purchase.
Gold jewellery: Ladies love 585 gold
14-carat solid gold or yellow gold alloys typically consist of copper and silver in addition to 58.5% fine gold. The exact shade of gold can vary slightly depending on the manufacturer, degree of hardness, or the exact color nuance and processing selected by the respective goldsmith. 585 red gold alloys also consist of 58.5% fine gold. However, the copper content is higher than the silver content. Sometimes there is even no silver included. Copper is naturally reddish, giving the alloy its typical reddish tone. Here, too, the red gold color can vary depending on the manufacturer, degree of hardness and the like. Rose gold is light rose 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! You should always ask here! Except for us - because of course we don't use nickel!) or palladium. The same applies here: The white gold color can vary slightly. White gold jewelry is often plated with rhodium after manufacture. This creates an even shine.

To do this, simply place your 14 K solid gold jewelery in the warm bath for 15 minutes and let it soak in. Dirt particles can easily be removed from your favorite items with a soft toothbrush. For smaller and particularly filigree pieces of jewelry, such as rings, you should swirl the water around a bit. This is how you loosen the dirt from small indentations. After cleaning , you should rinse the 14k solid gold jewelry under clear water and dry it. Solid Gold achieves a special shine with a soft jewelry cleaning cloth. For the daily cleaning of your favorite 14 K solid gold jewelry, just cleaning with a soft cloth or a gold cleaning cloth is enough. After wearing, gently rub your solid gold jewelry with a cloth. The timeless pieces stay at their most beautiful when they are stowed in a closed jewelry box so that it is as airtight as possible.
Tips for caring for 14k solid gold in everyday life
In everyday life, keep your jewelry away from the water. Take it off when you take a shower, swim your laps in salt or chlorine water. In general, the jewelry is put on last and taken off first. 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 protected from light, stored dry and individually. Velvety small bags in a dark box are particularly suitable. In our online shop you will also find a very special way to store your precious 14 carat solid gold jewelry: our Furoshikis. A furoshiki is a 25x25cm square cloth. It is mainly used in Japan as traditional packaging and as a carrying bag - for gifts or clothes, for example. In our online shop or in our store in Cologne you will find many different designs. The towels 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 sarees.
