Your guide to 14K Gold piercing jewelry

Gold has been used to craft ornamental objects and jewelry since time immemorial and remains one of the most popular jewelry materials today. Thanks to the material's flexibility and durability you can find gold versions of almost any type of jewelry from septum rings to wedding bands and chokers.

The purity of gold is measured in carats, with 24 carats (or 24K) gold being the purest but also the softest. Most everyday gold jewelry is made with gold in 10K to 14K range which means that it has been mixed with other metals such as copper or silver to strengthen it and prevent it from breaking and denting easily.

14K gold, in particular, is a popular option for everyday wear due to its durability and ability to retain its colour and lustre even with daily wear. It is also generally considered hypoallergenic and less likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to lower-karat gold or gold-plated jewelry.

Here at Ask & Embla, 14K solid gold is one of the key materials we use in crafting our demi-fine threadless ends. This ensures that our jewelry wears with unparalleled comfort and style, while still being durable and designed to last. We also offer a one-year warranty for all 14K solid gold jewelry, including our threadless ends, giving you peace of mind with every wear.


Threadless ends are a type of threadless jewelry. The benefits of threadless ends include lower risks of infection, ease and comfort of wear, and endless versatility as they ca be worn in different piercings like in the ear lobe, ear cartilage, nostril and lip. And because the jewelry is held together by tension and not the standard threads, there is no risk of it coming unscrewed from daily movements and falling apart. 

Since 14K gold is also hypoallergenic our 14K gold threadless ends are not only great for daily wear but are also perfect for anyone with sensitive skin or to wear in fresh piercings.


Jewelry care is quite simple for our 14K gold threadless ends.

You can use warm water and mild soap to get rid of any dirt or smudges. Do make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing or wearing them to prevent water damage.

Once your jewelry is fully dried you can gently buff it with a soft lint-free cloth or specialised gold buffing cloth to restore its natural shine. Discover more material care tips to keep your jewelry looking their best.
