MATERIAL USED





18k Gold Vermeil (pronouced ‘ver-may’)


Gold vermeil jewelry is made by a process of electroplating.
It consists of depositing and bonding a thick layer of gold, which is no less than 2.5 microns over high quality sterling silver.

Vermeil is hypoallergenic and safer for sensitive skin.
It is durable and resistant because the silver is wrapped in a thick layer of gold which prevents it from tarnishing.


Stamps Of Quality: All our gold vermeil jewelry designs are stamped with "S925" or "925 Silver" mark to certify the sterling silver authenticity and purity.


Note: Although gold vermeil will not tarnish like other gold plated jewelry, it might become dirty and fade slightly with time.
Please follow our care instructions to make your jewelry last longer.



925 Sterling Silver

Sterling silver jewelry is made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy metals.
The added alloy metals make the silver much more durable, helping the jewelry last and stay shiny.

All our sterling silver pieces are polished and dipped in Rhodium, which is one of the costliest precious metals.
This provides a tough and protective layer against tarnishing and an extra bright finishing.


Stamps Of Quality: All our sterling silver jewelry designs are stamped with "S925" or "925 Silver" mark to certify the sterling silver authenticity and purity.


Note: Sterling silver might become dirty and fade slightly with the exposure to air.
You can remove the dirt with a silver polishing cloth.

Please follow our care instructions to make your jewelry last longer.









18k Gold Plated Brass


18k gold plated brass jewelry designs are electroplated with a layer of 18k gold in a 2 micron thickness.
On top of it, there is a layer of anti-tarnish for longer durability and
which prevents it from tarnishing.


Note:
The downside of gold plating jewelry is that the plated layer might fade and tarnish over time.

The reason being that molecules of the base metals slowly transfer into the thin layer of gold causing it to break down.
Please follow our care instructions to make your jewelry last longer.


Sterling Silver Plated Brass


Sterling silver plated brass jewelry have a layer of anti-tarnish on top.
These pieces are still incredibly durable and plated with exactly the same process as our sterling silver.
However will not be marked with a 925 stamp as they are not 92.5% pure silver.


Note: The downside of gold plating jewelry is that the plated layer might fade and tarnish over time.
The reason being that molecules of the base metals slowly transfer into the thin layer of gold causing it to break down.
Please follow our care instructions to make your jewelry last longer.








Stainless Steel / 316L


Stainless steel is a highly durable and hard metal.
All our stainless steel jewelry resists scratches and corrosion thanks to an invisible layer of chromium that prevents from oxidation.

They also have a PVD ( “physical vapor deposition” ) coating,
which is a high-temperature vacuum coating process that provides a shining finishing and better resistance.

Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and safer for sensitive skin. It doesn’t tarnish, rust or oxidize.




Cubic Zirconia


This synthetic crystalline substance is created by melting powered zirconium and powered zirconium dioxide together.


We only use 4A superior quality cubic zircons.
We'll notice the differences in quality, clarity, durability, and brilliance of the finished stones.






Freshwater Pearls


Freshwater pearls come from freshwater mussels and oysters.
Every cultured pearl is unique and varies in color and shape from baroque to near-round.
They have a very thick nacre layer, which gives them a beautiful luster and shine.



Note:

Pearl jewelry should be the last thing you put on before going out and the first thing you take off when you come home.
Do not wipe culture pearls with silver polishing cloth! Use a soft and clean cotton cloth after each wear.
Avoid direct contact with chemicals found in perfume or other cosmetics.
Store individually in a dry place when not worn.




Nacre


Nacre, also known as mother-of-pearls is an organic composite material.⁠
They are organically produced by some molluscs such as pearl oysters, freshwater mussels and  abalone as an inner shell layer.

Strong and resilient, they are iridescent and shine from different angles.


Notes: Do not wipe nacre jewelry with silver polishing cloth! Use a soft and clean cotton cloth after each wear and store individually in a dry place when not worn. Avoid direct contact with chemicals found in perfume or other cosmetics.
