our metals

We designed OXB for people just like us — always on the go. I.e. our jewelry is made to be worn. We only use 14K gold filled and sterling silver metals. These metals uphold their quality and color, even against sweat and time; their colors won’t rub off, and they won’t turn you green. We understand metal sensitivities. In order to limit allergens, we use metals free from zinc and chromium. Run, dance, and sweat in your OXB - we are made to move.

14k Gold Filled:

Gold filled is a layer of gold that is bonded to a base metal.  Unlike gold plating, the gold will not rub or wear off in time. All gold components will be gold filled, because it withstands everyday wear & workout. 14K GF is free of major allergens - Zinc and chromium free because it is an excellent material for sensitive skin.

Sterling Silver:

Sterling silver is great for everyday wear and will polish easily. Unlike silver plating, the silver will not rub or wear off in time. All silver components will be sterling silver, because it withstands everyday wear & workout. Additionally, earring posts and studs may be sterling silver, because it is an excellent material for sensitive skin.

Zinc & Chromium free

We are sensitive to your sensitivities - our metals do not have the number one metal allergens, zinc & chromium.
