When designing The Willow Necklace, I was reminded of just what it takes to create a pearl.  Through no fault of its own,  the pearl’s beauty is formed though uncomfortable and gritty intrusions. For me, when faith surrounds the unwelcome and uncomfortable, painful things can transform into something of great value. 
 
True to the meaning of its name, The Willow is slender and graceful. Perfect for layering or a beautiful, dainty addition on its own.  

Quality is one of our core values, which is why at Frances + Dean we use brass, bronze, sterling silver, fine silver & gold-filled metals. Filled metals far outlast silver or gold plated jewelry, as the metal is bonded to the core and does not chip or wear away. Gold-filled jewelry contains almost 100% more gold than gold plated. Gold-filled is not only more valuable, but is tarnish resistant as well as an economical alternative to solid gold. 


So when you are shopping for pieces with longevity, always make sure you you are purchasing, at a minimum, gold-filled or fine/sterling silver. In today’s market, the cost of sterling silver and gold-filled is more affordable, allowing you to invest more in the quality of your pieces. Overall you will be paying more than you would for gold or silver plated (usually), but the cost is so worth it!
