THE ROPE CHAIN
All we’re going to say: prepare to sparkle and shine, especially in the sunlight. Our laser cut rope chains are not beginners when it comes to the shine factor. Gold is wrapped in twists, mimicking a rope, while the laser cuts offer flat surfaces that reflect, creating ultimate brilliance.
Made hollow while still feeling entirely substantial, you reap the look and prosperity of 14k gold, while keeping it lightweight, comfortable and cost-effective, making it a sparkly addition to any stack while holding it’s own solo as well. Available in our smaller size here.
14K GOLD + NATURAL DIAMONDS
ÖUGIE uses only 14k gold and natural diamonds. Our gold is not plated, not filled, and not vermeil because we believe jewelry is an investment and should never have an expiration date by tarnishing or fading over time. We are proud to only use diamonds that are conflict-free, fair trade, and abide by The Kimberly Process. We take pride in working with suppliers that are honest, ethical, and operate using safe and fair labor practices.
QUALITY + EDUCATION
WHAT IS 14K GOLD?
A karat (k) is the measurement of purity. Pure gold is 24k gold, which is generally too soft to use in most types of jewelry as it can lose shape and wear down. Any number below 24k means that there are other metals mixed in with the gold to form what is called an alloy. This alloy gives us our final material that is durable enough to sustain a lifetime of daily wear by you and beyond.
14k gold is durable, hypoallergenic, anti-tarnish, and does not include harsh chemicals. To be certified as 14k, the amount of gold must always remain at 58%. Our pieces are always pridefully stamped with the seal of 14k.
