New Gold Standard

Kandy Nation is on a mission to change the way you look at Gold Jewellery.

After countless hours of research we have decided to invest in a product that is turning the jewellery world upside down. Kandy Nation wanted to stand behind a product that matters and brings positive change to people’s lives. Sadly, more and more people discover they have some sort of allergy to foods or chemicals, or their skin is very sensitive to chemical combinations of items they come to contact with. A lot of these allergies and sensitivities are developed or discovered through the jewellery they choose to wear. 

It’s not the Gold that’s the problem 

Do you know someone who developed an allergic reaction to a gold or silver jewellery? Without consulting with a specialist they most likely assumed that they have an allergy to gold or silver itself. Although it can be the case in some rare cases, it is not Gold nor Silver that is the culprit of that itchy red rash or black marks on skin. So who is guilty? 99% chance it’s Nickel or Lead. What? Who? How? Well, if you did not know, both Gold & Silver are incredibly fragile metals on it’s own, thus to create that stunning piece of jewellery, that you will ask your husband to buy you for Christmas, they are often mixed with Nickel and/or other metals to make it tougher. Now you understand that the lower the purity of the gold alloy (the lower the karat of the jewelry), the bigger part of it is made up of non-gold metals, including nickel. So unless you have a diagnosed allergy to Gold, or silver for that matter, it is most likely Nickel, Copper or Brass that’s causing it.

New Sheriff in Town

The hottest trend in fashion jewellery, taking over by a storm is Gold Plating. Gold Plating is simply putting a thin layer of real (yes, Real) Gold on top of other metals. The quality of Gold is exactly the same as in solid Gold product, but the heart of it is different. Gold plating allows jewellery designers to make their wildest dreams come to life, because using a different base metal gives them freedom that pure gold does not allow. And what’s more important it allows their product be affordable to masses, all the while looking practically indistinguishable from solid gold pieces. Gold plated jewellery is increasing in popularity in jewellery departments with soon-to-be-married-couples desiring their wedding bands to be made from that exact material that will stand the test of time, at a fraction of a price. Stainless steel.

Not all that glitters is solid Gold

Gold plating is in use for quite many years, but only recently it has been discovered what is the best base to apply it on. After many trials and tribulations, that unfortunately caused some bad press to gold plating, jewellery makers finally have it figured out. The answer couldn’t be simpler – stainless steel. Stainless steel is a metal compound of iron, carbon, and chromium. It is used for making things from surgical tools, pans, to car parts. And jewellery! Stainless steel was originally used for freshly pierced earrings due to the extremely low rate of allergic reactions to it. And still, 316L surgical steel is the safest choice available as first contact jewellery, especially for children. It is harder to scratch, can withstand the sun, the sand, and the sea. What can make it even safer is the Gold plating on top, that helps to prevent allergic reactions. Everything for the Win! The only Achilles heel of stainless steel jewellery is its’ sensitivity to chlorine, so you simply need to remember to take it off before going into chlorine pool. Such a minor disadvantage to deal with, right?

Tarnish free God

Not convinced? Surgical steel jewellery is corrosion-free, tarnish-free, and scratch-free. It does not require as much maintenance as solid gold jewellery and is really easy to clean. It is lightweight and comfortable. It is substantially cheaper than Gold. Best of All, it binds gold extremely well in a Gold plating process – much better than Silver, actually. It is the most environmentally-friendly metal option in the jewelry world. In the production process, the amount of energy used and waste produced is dramatically less than in the production of other metals for jewelry, AND it is 100% recyclable. Stainless steel jewellery is a poor conductor of electricity – it conducts around up to 16v, while gold conducts up to 310v and silver is 429v (for those worrying about getting electric shocks from their ring or necklace). But the plating will wear off, you worry. Yes, it might. After daily wear (which by the way is not he way to go with pure Gold jewellery), the gold will eventually wear off. Luckily, because the base metal is such a high quality it will not deteriorate and can be easily and cheaply re-plated in most jewellery stores.

For the love of Gold

Kandy Nation gold plated jewellery chose to stand behind a product that is does not cause harm to Your precious health nor the environment. A product that is made from quality materials into a luxurious and durable product, costing fraction of a price of it’s pure gold equivalent. For the love of our customers.



Essential Options regarding Fashion and More

Are you discouraged when you open the wardrobe? Here are some ideas and tips to create casual and elegant fashionable outfits characterized by personal style and good taste. Do you often see photos of celebs and fashion bloggers, think of copying their look and then falling back on the usual combinations?

Quiet: you are in good company

There is a desire to change, to dare or simply to follow fashion, but to prove the facts, creating an outfit is less simple than it seems.

Matching clothes is not an exact science and much is the (good) taste and style of every person, but there are some “tricks” to avoid epic fail and always be impeccable.

Find out here what they are and the walk-in closet won’t scare you anymore:

How to match a girl’s clothes

The first thing to do for a top outfit is to look at yourself in the mirror to see what your silhouette is. Choosing garments and accessories that enhance the physicality of each one, in fact, is essential for the success of any look. For the new fashion ideas this is a perfect deal.

If you are tall and have a sports body, opt for wide trousers, long skirts, oversized sweaters, large bags and flat shoes, while if you are thin, you will enhance with soft lines and overlapping volumes and dare the mannish style. For the little ones , go ahead for whole dresses, straight trousers and skirts and heels, for curvy instead fine shirts and tops that bring out the décolleté and hide the “pancetta”, corsets, flared skirts and dresses that emphasize the shapes.

Once you have identified your must-have items, the second step towards a tasteful outfit is the combination of colors . The two basic rules plan to never combine two of the same “category” (primary or secondary) and to avoid combinations between different shades of the same color.

How to match men’s clothes

It is often said that it is easier for men to dress, but is it really so? Certainly in the male fashion universe there is less variety than the female one, but this does not mean that there are some rules of good taste and common sense to avoid “wrong” looks or decidedly trash.

It is a general rule of bon ton, instead, that the clutch bag, or the pocket handkerchief, must never be coordinated with the tie.

How to combine clothes and colors

Matching clothes and colors seems easy, but even “worn out” fashionistas create more than a problem. In fact, fashion and style are “fluid” and it can happen (and it has happened) that what according to the classical canons is forbidden all at once becomes a must.

Smart Options for the Best Gift Deals

Gifts have been part of human culture since the dawn of time, Babylonians, Egyptians and ancient Romans used to make themselves or exchange gifts on certain occasions. Yet, despite being an ancient practice, we often find ourselves in enormous difficulty, when we have to think about the gift to be made for the birthday of a friend of ours, for Christmas to our loved ones, or to our boyfriend or our girlfriend for Valentine’s Day or for our ‘anniversary.

The True Options

If it is true that thought is enough, many times it is precisely the ideas for a gift that we miss a gift that can please, amaze and makes us think, whenever the birthday will use or think about the object we have given him.

Well, if this is the situation you are experiencing, you are on the right page. Below we will show you a series of useful gift ideas for every occasion. We will divide them into gift ideas for him and gift ideas for her, and finally we will propose a short section for DIY gift ideas, if you are good at manual work or simply want to have fun creating a personalized gift.

Gift Ideas for Him

If the person you need to give a gift to is a man, you must first think about his personality to get the right gift idea for him.

If we are in front of a boy or a sports man, a subscription to the newly opened gym in the neighborhood could greatly please him. If he is a football fan, the shirt of his favorite team or the ticket to follow the game at the stadium, he can only make him happy. If, on the other hand, you love speed and water sports, a ride on a water scooter could be an experience of which you will be forever grateful.

If the gift is for a man who is always well dressed and has a classic taste, then it will be very simple. A made-to-measure shirt costs little and makes its effect. A hand-sewn tie is the classic plus point. If he is also a lover of music, then he will appreciate vinyls very much and, if he does not have a turntable, it is time for someone to give it to him.

A special case is the messy man, especially if this man is your boyfriend or husband. Here we need to combine gift ideas with usefulness and the need for a life together. If you always forget where you put the keys, a keying is a nice and cheap gift. If he returns home and leaves everything in his pocket around, a pocket emptier could be a good object to put in the house. Finally, if you have the bike and always leave the helmet in the most absurd places, then a cute and colorful wall helmet holder could solve a big problem in the home.
