WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT OUR BAR NECKLACES?
Each Mint & Birch bar necklace is cut by hand in our studio. Each one starts out as a large sheet of extra thick, premium, high quality, 14k gold fill or sterling silver from reputable mills in North America and is stamped using hand tools, and polished in our studio using professional materials. We promise that our necklaces are worth the price! We do NOT use gold plated materials. Instead, we use heavy gold fill, which contains more gold than gold plated, and is also permanent and will not wear off or tarnish.
Most importantly, gold fill jewelry must contain a certain percentage of gold in order to be able to be legally called gold fill. This percentage is based on the weight of the piece. Here at Mint & Birch, we use extra thick and heavy bars for your necklaces so that the percentage of gold that you are getting per necklace is higher. This ensures a luxurious, long lasting piece that you can treasure for years to come.
We also source thicker than average sheets of gold fill and sterling made in North American mills! Mint & Birch also works hard to create unique designs to hand stamp your necklaces with. In fact, some of our designs are even created specifically for us and cannot be found elsewhere!
