OUR NEW SOLID GOLD RANGE
OCTOBER 01, 2015 by GARY AT CHUPI
After receiving many enquiries and requests over the last 18 months, we are delighted to finally announce that we are launching a special solid gold range! A selection of our most popular pieces are now available from our fine jewellery section on chupi.com, And for those of you who prefer to shop in physical stores, our solid gold range is also available from Weir and Sons Jewellers on Grafton St. in Dublin City Centre.
For those of you who are not familiar with the differences between our current and new ranges – our pieces have always been gold plated. This process involves casting our pieces in solid sterling silver. It’s gold (or rose gold) finish is then achieved by covering the sterling silver piece in a thick layer of 18k gold before polishing.
Our new range however, is 100% solid gold. Visually there are some minor differences. While gold plated jewellery can last a long time, with enough wear it may eventually need to be replated every few years. Whereas, solid gold jewellery is the highest standard of gold and, if cared for properly, retains its value over time and can be passed down for generations. Properly caring for your solid gold jewellery is simple. All you need is a polishing cloth or else just wash with soft soapy water.
Our new solid gold range includes our classic swan feather earrings, necklace and ring, our open heart ring, as well as our ever-popular twig ring necklace. If you would prefer a piece in solid rose gold, just get in touch at email@example.com
