“As Our Lady spoke these last words, she opened her hands and for the second time, she communicated to us the rays of that same immense light. We saw ourselves in this light, as it were, immersed in God. … In front of the palm of Our Lady’s right hand was a heart encircled by thorns which pierced it. We understood that this was the Immaculate Heart of Mary, outraged by the sins of humanity, and seeking reparation.” – Lúcia of Fátima

What is Gold Filled jewelry? How is it different from Gold Plated?
Gold Filled jewelry is made by sandwiching a core alloy in between two layers of gold. Gold plated however is a core alloy that is dipped in gold. This leads to a thinner (and lesser) amount of actual gold in the piece. Gold filled pieces will last a lifetime so long as they are well maintained. Gold plated however, doesn’t have this luxury. It can easily be affected by heat, water, or wear.
Why use gold filled when gold plated is cheaper?
Quality. Just that simple. We wanted to create pieces that will last. Pieces that can be worn and day in and day out without fear of wear.
Why source in the USA?
While it is true that you can easily source pieces cheaper from China, India, or other countries that produce wholesale jewelry components; here at Lillian Jude we strive to support the mom and pop shop. By supporting these smaller businesses, and insuring that all pieces are made in the USA, we can rest assured that we are not only helping maintain jobs, but that the conditions in which those laborers work is a clean and safe environment! So help us support the “little guy” and let’s celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit!
The devotion of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is not unlike that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Yet while the Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us of His love for us, the Immaculate Heart of Mary reminds us of her love for Him. No person loved Jesus more than His own mother and it is through her intercession that we grow closer to Him.
