Alysa & Joelle

Sisters Alysa and Joelle come from a family of entrepreneurs and jewelers. Their father owned a gold jewelry business in Carmel and they grew up playing with their mother's jewelry. They both didn't wear much jewelry before daintie but when they did, they preferred it to be dainty. Hence where the play on the word daintie came from! They both don't have much time to put on and take off jewelry, let alone be careful when wearing it. Nor do they always have someone there to help them clasp such jewelry. Joelle's husband is a Captain with Cal Fire and Alysa is usually single! They also both work hard- Joelle on her farm caring for animals and the land, and Alysa with her flower business Bella Nozze- so they also needed something hearty. daintie permanent jewelry was their (and your!) perfect solution.

100% Gold This is the highest karat, and the purest form of gold jewelry. 24k gold is all parts gold without traces of other metals. Because of this, it has a uniquely rich, bright yellow hue. This pureness and rare color make 24k gold highly desirable, the most expensive, and most often used in fine jewelry. Because 24k gold does not have traces of other metals, the pieces are known for being ‘softer.’ However, it does not make them any less durable, as 24k gold pieces are forged to last a lifetime. 


18 Parts Gold, 6 Parts Other Metals — 75% Gold 18k gold is where you start seeing how mixing in other metals, like copper or silver, affects the color. While 18k gold still has that warm yellow color, it is not as vibrant as 24k gold jewelry. However, having a quarter of the jewelry made with other alloys does make the piece harder. 18k gold is a great choice for people who want high-quality gold jewelry at a lower price point. 


14 Parts Gold, 10 Parts Other Metals — 58% Gold 14k gold is the highest karat of gold that is still considered good for use in fine jewelry. But, because nearly 40 percent of the weight of the piece is made up of different alloys, you can see a significant difference in the gold hue, shine, and saturation. That being said, some people prefer this often cooler hue of gold and opt for it purposefully. 14k is also a great choice for people who desire to own gold jewelry but don’t want to spend as much as they would on 18k or 24k.


Anything less than 14k really starts to blur the line between fine and costume jewelry. While this jewelry does indeed have some small parts of gold, the rest is made up of other alloys that greatly affect the color, luster, and natural quality of the gold itself. This is the least expensive kind of gold jewelry you can buy. It’s also important to note that anything 10k and above must be marked with a stamp, so if you cannot find one, be wary about how much gold is actually in it.
