STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN
Inspired by the beautiful rich history of our own families, and our continual curiosity of the insides of our grandma's jewellery box, the Magnolia + Iris Collection is a dedication to our mothers and grandmothers. With reminiscent designs incorporating our love for all things vintage, we hope this collection sparks happiness and joy within your own journey with your loved ones.
Gold-filled is the closest alternative to solid gold. Gold filled jewelry has a thick layer of solid gold bonded onto the base layer, usually brass or sterling silver. Compared to gold plated which uses a process of electroplating that quickly dips your jewelry in gold, resulting in a miniscule layer of gold, gold-filled is much more durable and long lasting.
There are 3 basic levels of gold jewelry. Solid gold, gold-filled, and gold plated.
- Solid gold contains the most gold, with 24 karat gold containing 100% gold. Gold-filled jewelry typically contains 5% solid gold in weight, while gold plated contains about 0.001% solid gold in weight.
- The process of making gold filled jewelry is much different to gold plated jewelry. Gold plated uses an electroplating process that quickly dips your jewelry in gold. With gold-filled, the thick layer of gold is pressure bonded onto the base metal, resulting in a very strong and durable ‘plating’.
- Gold-filled lasts 10x more than gold plated, making it hypoallergenic for those who cannot wear gold plated. Longer life times mean you are also producing less waste and saving money over time from having to buy more cheap jewelry.

So beautiful and comfortable! They are perfect everyday earrings
Just received my pair - I love them! Super comfortable to wear, such a simple but pretty earring, perfect size, looking forward to wearing these everyday! Thank you!
These huggies are smaller than I envisioned but they are oh so cute!! Look super delicate and dressy. I wear them in my seconds with a bigger hoop and charms on both sets. Absolutely stunning
I’m absolutely in love with these earrings, such great quality and look absolutely stunning!!
First they are small. Depending on your piercing they are considered huggies. I love the idea but in person they do not have much impact. The stone doesn’t sparkle. They have a mildly cloudy look. They are also very very small. Also the gold is very yellow almost dark yellow gold. I like the color on its own but with my other stuff it doesn’t fit. That being said my other stuff is dainty and tiny and gold. Also they do not open very wide at all so if you have thicker lobes it’ll be hard to put on and remove. Lastly my ears are sensitive so they do not like the harsh deep divot in the clasp or the curve of the hoop. Since it’s a small hoop the curve is harsh and I need to squeeze my ear in. I would return if I could just because they have not lived up to my expectations
