Gold huggie earrings are designed to be worn comfortably all day long. They are lightweight and sit close to the earlobe, so you won't even feel like you're wearing them. Of course, there are many factors to consider when finding the perfect pair of earrings.

What is the Difference Between Gold-plated (vermeil) & Solid Gold Huggies? 

When choosing the perfect pair of Huggies, it's essential to understand the difference between gold-plated and solid gold. Gold-plated Huggies are made from a base metal like silver or brass that is then coated with a thin layer of gold. 18ct Solid gold Huggies, on the other hand, are made entirely from pure gold. The 'CT' represents the percentage of solid gold in the alloy - 18ct solid gold has 75% pure gold, whereas 18ct Gold Vermeil has less than 0.0025% solid gold.

Solid gold is the way to go if you're looking for a pair of Huggies that will stand the test of time. Not only is it more durable, but it also has a luxurious feel that will make you feel confident and stylish every time you put them on.

While gold-plated Huggies may be less expensive, they are not as durable as solid gold and will eventually wear away, exposing the metal underneath. On the other hand, solid gold Huggies are made to last a lifetime.

We only use the highest quality 18ct solid gold in our jewellery. This means that your jewellery will never fade or tarnish and can be passed down for generations to come.
