Everyday Heirlooms | What is Heirloom Quality | GLDN

One of our favorite metals is 14k solid gold, and it’s no surprise why — this heirloom-quality material is our favorite choice for low maintenance, fine jewelry that will last and keep its shine forever. Whether you’re just starting your collection or looking to invest in that *one* special piece, we believe in making go-to staples and commemorative heirloom jewelry accessible and affordable. That’s exactly why we designed our solid gold collection with our curated picks for personalized styles and everyday classics that will last a lifetime.

You can feel good knowing that all of our heirloom pieces are made from recycled materials using a sustainable, made-to-order process. We only use what we need during production and recycle the rest—leaving almost zero waste. So you can feel (and look) oh-so-good being fancy.


Fewer, Finer Pieces

We’re rolling out the solid gold carpet for every day.

Our 14k solid gold essentials are effortlessly elevated pieces to put on and never take off. Find go-to staples in classic styles from stacking rings to pearls, made to endure the test of daily wear and love. Whether it’s a classic hoop that makes you feel polished, your favorite ring stack, or that always reliable gold chain, it’s all about the little luxuries that brighten any, and every day. Because solid gold is so durable and won't tarnish or discolor over time, you can invest in quintessential styles once and keep them in your #OOTD rotation on repeat.
