18k Gold Vermeil
All of our fine jewellery is handcrafted in Gold Vermeil. Never heard of Gold Vermeil (pronounced ‘Ver-May’)!? Simply, to be considered Gold Vermeil, the piece of jewellery must have a very thick layer of Gold over high-quality Sterling Silver. This has nothing to do with regular gold plating, which consists of a thin layer that often wears off fast. We layer our base of Sterling Silver with 18k Gold to make it even more durable, which allows us to create premium pieces of jewellery without the premium price tags of solid gold. Additionally, for those who fear metal allergies, Gold Vermeil is the perfect solution as there is no unknown core metal other than a thick layer of solid Gold and the base of high-quality Sterling Silver.
925 Sterling Silver
For all our Silver items we only use the highest quality, durable 925 Sterling Silver, which is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. We even plate our Silver jewellery in rhodium, to make it extra shiny and durable. Rhodium belongs to the costliest precious metals due to its rarity. All our Sterling Silver pieces are stamped with the 925 mark, which indicates the purity of the metal.
