Questions and answers about gold jewelry - from boops
by Sonja Zuckerstätter·
Gold jewelry is one of the absolute classics among accessories: from trendy gold creoles to meaningful gold rings and precious gold chains. But as sure as we are that gold is one of the absolute must-haves in the jewelry collection, we get asked a lot of questions on a regular basis. That's why we've made it our business to give you some answers and insights. So that you can soon wear your first pieces of jewelry made of real gold.
Who can wear gold jewelry?
If you still doubt and wonder whether you can wear gold jewelry, we have a very clear answer for you: Yes, you can! Because we are firmly convinced that really everyone can wear gold jewelry. Whether our delicate shiny babies or the herringbone chain II as a statement piece suits you depends on your style and how eye-catching you want your jewelry to be. But we are sure that you will find what you are looking for in our store and that you can wear gold with confidence!
Which gold jewelry is fashionable?
For us, it is clear that gold jewelry itself is always trendy - and will remain so. With boops, our goal is to ensure that your jewelry stays modern for a long time and adapts to every current fashion trend. That's why we focus on basics like our classy hoops, which really round off any outfit. Because we want you to be able to wear your jewelry for years and decades. We also think that more daring it-pieces like our trilogy ring will always stay on trend - because gold is simply a timeless material.
Which gold jewelry does not discolor?
You're probably familiar with the discoloration of gold costume jewelry or even the marks it leaves on your skin when you wear it frequently. Especially when it gets wet, jewelry unfortunately loses its shine and color quickly - if it is only gold-plated. That's why our boops earrings, necklaces and rings are made of 100% real gold: so you can be sure that the jewelry will never fade, discolor or even rub off. It will last a lifetime and will always look as if you were wearing it for the first time. That's what we love about pure gold.
Which gold jewelry is valuable?
Basically, this question can be answered in the same way as the previous one: gold jewelry is really valuable when it is made of 100% pure real gold. With our boops jewelry, you can also tell the value by the engraving - because it's 14-karat 585 gold, which can even be melted down. So in a financial emergency, you could pawn, sell, or even melt down your boops and trade them in. Of course, we hope you never find yourself in such a situation - but we think it's even more important for women to be able to wear some of their financial protection on their bodies. By the way, the classy hoops XL as well as the drippy hoops are among the most valuable boops besides the herringbone chain II. But every single piece of jewelry in our store has a real value.
How can you clean and store gold jewelry?
Because they are real gold jewelry, you never have to take your boops off. But you should still clean them from time to time. And as your collection grows, you'll need to store your gold jewelry somewhere. For particularly valuable jewelry, it might be worth buying a safe or - if you only wear it on very special occasions - storing it somewhere safe, like a bank safety deposit box. We advise you to do this especially if an important part of your assets is invested in gold jewelry.
You should clean your jewelry, on the one hand, because it could attract many bacteria if worn constantly, especially in the ear. And secondly, because gold jewelry can look worn over time due to creams, dust, dirt and the like. You can use washing-up liquid, baking soda or toothpaste for cleaning and don't need your own cleaning agent - because you can't destroy real gold anyway.
What should gold jewelry cost?
Gold is a material with real value - and accordingly, jewelry made of real gold is often quite expensive. Moreover, prices often fluctuate according to the current price of gold on the market. Especially as a young woman, it can then be a big step to afford jewelry made of pure real gold. This is exactly where the idea behind boops came from: Our founder Rana was looking for affordable basics made of pure real gold - and didn't find them in Austria. From the beginning it was important to her that our boops jewelry pieces are affordable for every budget. Because that way, even as young women, we can put together our own collection of valuable gold jewelry that will stay with us for a lifetime and can even be passed on. That's why at boops we forgo high profit margins and make gold affordable as an accessory.
Where can I buy gold jewelry?
You can buy gold jewelry at your local jeweler, for example. However, the prices there are often particularly high. When buying on the Internet, you should always make sure that it really is real gold jewelry - because often it is only written very small or far down in the product description that it is only gold-plated jewelry. This means that the jewelry is made of silver, for example, and is only surrounded by a thin layer of gold. Also, "vermeil" is a term for jewelry that isn't really made of gold inside at all. It's best to take good care not to overlook such details. Because it's often costume jewelry that is way overpriced - and has no real value.
