At Guldviva, gold symbolizes endurance and value. All gold that is to be shaped into jewellery must be alloyed with other metals to achieve sufficient strength. In our workshop, we always work with 18 carats, which contains 75 percent gold, instead of 14 carats where the gold content is 58.5 percent. Both are considered pure gold, but one would rather be more genuine than less, right?
A sustainable gold
Recycling old jewellery requires less energy and resources and significantly reduces emissions into the air, soil and water compared to mining new precious metals. We strive for fully sustainable production and currently use 100% recycled gold, which we buy ourselves from our customers. All gold submitted to us is purified from impurities and then alloyed with 25% copper and silver.
Free cleaning and polishing
18K gold does not normally discolor, but jewellery you wear often will still show signs of frequent use. That's why we offer free professional polishing of all Guldviva jewellery. We can, for example, roll the jewellery in a drum with polishing beads or redo the surface finish by hand. Your jewellery will be like new again.
