About Our Products 


Proudly Australian Made

Of the products we supply, the majority are manufactured in our Melbourne based factory with Australian metals. We source Australian gold and silver for all in house manufactured items. This includes our whole range of bangles, and 95% of our chains, plus a range of clasps, findings etc which are all made in Melbourne. We have a limited range of imported products, but we ensure we select the highest quality to match our high Australian standards. 




 

Our Ranges & Manufacturing Processes

Not only manufacturers of bangles and chains, we also import a range of fashionable earrings, pendants and hard to manufacture fine chains from leading suppliers in Europe. We always ensure we stock only the highest of quality products, as we know that the better the quality, the happier your customers are in the long term.

9ct Silver Filled - the thickest gold layer on the market

 

Over 20 years ago, Golden Mile were looking for a way to make hollow jewellery more durable, without the price of solid gold, and this is where we came up with our Silver Filled manufacturing processes.
We designed machinery to give us the best manufacturing processes available to us, which made us leaders in producing our Silver Filled jewellery, and for a very long time, the only ones in Australia (or maybe even the world), to be making it. Over time, manufacturers caught on to the idea, and started to mimic our products, but to a different standard to the strict ones we adhere ourselves to.

How is our Silver Filled jewellery different to what else is on the market?
Our production process uses a hollow gold tube, which is then inserted with a solid sterling silver core. This is bonded together in an oven, which glues the gold and silver together, to prevent any air gaps appearing during the next stage of manufacturing. This is then drawn down to size, and bent into shape based on the product that you order. The final product does not have a 'sleeve' over the join, as we produce a seamless, high polish finish. 

When we make our Silver Filled products, we work to have the same gold thickness as the hollow equivalent that we produce (which is also a thicker layer - see more details below). 
For example, a 4mm golf bangle in hollow that we make, is virtually the same gold content and same price as a 4mm golf bangle in Silver Filled.

Our standard gold thickness is 0.30 - 0.35mm thick on our Silver Filled.

The average product made in other countries has a gold layer of approximately 0.01 - 0.03mm thick, which is less than 1/10th of what we produce at Golden Mile. This is then generally layered over a hollow silver tube, which has an average combined total thickness of gold and silver at 0.3mm thick.
The term 1/10th or 1/20th gold over silver is used a lot for imported products, however this can be misleading, as the actual quantity of gold is quite minimal in comparison. 


We understand that the imported variations of 'filled' or 'bonded' products have turned people off filled jewellery, but please know that we stand by our product 100%. 

To offer peace of mind to you and to your end consumer, we offer a 10 year warranty on all silver filled bangles, and a 5 year warranty on all silver filled chains. 

 


Hollow - Thick and durable

 

Over 25 years ago, Golden Mile started producing hollow gold jewellery. We ordered state of the art machinery from Italy to help us make a quality of hollow jewellery that was not yet seen on the Australian market.

With our machines, we refined and refined until we got the process right. 

We make sure our gold thickness on our tubing is durable enough to withstand everyday wear, and doesn't have the 'tinny' feel that some hollow jewellery may have. Our standard gold thickness is 0.30 - 0.35mm thick, and approx 0.45mm thick on our silver tube.

Our production process uses a hollow gold tube, which is then drawn down to size, and bent into shape based on the product that you order. The final product is a high polish finish. 

Our hollow bangles are fully sealed, all the way around.

Our hollow chains are made with a slight, but hidden opening, to help us during manufacturing, and assists in providing the 'chunky' feel. 

 


Solid

Solid gold jewellery is our bread and butter. Our business started in manufacturing quality solid jewellery, and over the years we have built up other aspects of our business around this. 

We always use Australian gold and silver suppliers who source their metal from Australian mines. All the metals that we use in our alloys are sourced locally, and alloyed in house with meticulous notes and records. We alloy our gold in different karats and colours, then allocate these to the product styles that we require.

Solid jewellery is our favourite to work with, as we can draw down to any size, width, style and melt and remelt as needed.

Any design you see in hollow or silver filled is available to be made in solid gold.
