All Leo + Lumi pieces are made with 14k gold. We chose to use 14k gold as it has a higher percentage of alloyed metals, which means it's durable for everyday wear.
Even with an active lifestyle, 14k gold will be resistant to dents, scratches, and band warping. We want our pieces to integrate into your every day wear and never lose their shine.
The diamonds we use are lab grown diamonds - we think they're so special we've written a whole post on them here.
Other than being mindful of not catching the fine chains on anything (sweater season poses a great threat) 14k gold needs very little polishing. You're even okay to wear your pieces in the shower!
