To guarantee the quality of our 18K gold-plated jewelry, Blessed uses the electroplating technique in its production process - which gives the jewelry a finish similar to solid gold and greater durability. All our parts are nickel and lead free, which means they do not cause allergic dermatitis, a reaction that causes itching and redness on the skin. The amount of gold, combined with high technology and craftsmanship, ensure that the quality of Blessed jewelry is superior to the market average. Each jewel receives 10 thousandths of gold and undergoes a thorough analysis to meet our quality standard. Our fine jewels have a 5 year gold plated warranty.
