Minigems Monthly #FreeTheBling Jewelry Give Away

freethebling

Everyone is literally giving things away these days to promote and of course we don’t like to be behind the times. So, we’ve constructed our own give away promo program and the details are below. We’ll be rolling this program out to other platforms to. For now, click here to find it on our Instagram. Hope you enjoy!

To enter here’s what you need to do.

1) Follow @myminigems 

2) Every pic that you like and tag a friend on within a month’s time counts as an entry into a drawing for that month’s giveaways. The more items you like and tag people on, the more entries you have and more chances you have to win.

***Second & Third Drawing!***
So what’s our purpose here. Simply stated, we have an awesome product. We know it, our consumers know it. But we’d like to get a little more serious about recording the advantages of our line over others in the field.

Minigems wants feedback from users on their experience with the jewelry, thoughts on design and what you would like to see more of in the future. Most importantly we want to begin developing a database of information regarding how many consumers find they are comfortable with wearing gold filled without skin irritation.

You’ll give us your email when we send out the jewelry you one and a follow up email will be sent to you in 3 months and 6 months.

All you have to do is give your opinion on the product and whether you/your child experienced any irritation associated with use, and you’re entered into a second and third round respectively.

Don’t miss a great chance to get great jewelry and provide your thoughts on an innovative product.

Drawings will take place once a month with 5-10 pieces being given away depending on availability. Items being given away can include earrings bracelets, necklaces from across the kids and adult lines for Minigems 1420 and Precious 1420.

What is 14/20 Gold Filled Jewelry? Is it Similar to Gold Plated?

Simply put, 14/20 gold filled jewelry is similar to gold plated jewelry in that both are made of metal. But that’s about where their similarities end in any consequential sense of the word. Actually the manufacturing process of gold filled and gold plated metal varies completely.

What is gold filled jewelry

 

According to the FTC, In order to permit using the terminology of “Gold Filled” you must ‘mechanically bond’ a ‘solid’ sheet of gold to an inner base metal. The total gold content must be 1/20 of the overall composition of the end product. Meaning, the item must be 5% gold in order to be called gold filled.

 

Now, since most people are not melting down their jewelry in order to smelt out the gold, we’d have to ask ourselves, why is there this product that requires a 5% gold content? We’ll deal with that more in dept in another post. But long story short, gold filled products retain their shine and don’t tarnish like even the heaviest gold plated base metal or sterling. Having a thick gold layer also acts as a stronger barrier between the inner base metal that ‘fills’ the gold. For people with sensitive ears or skin, this is a big plus. The thicker gold layer usually helps minimize irritation for those who are able to tolerate the 14k outer layer.
