Materials of our Jewellery

We only use the best materials for our jewellery. If you want to know more about what your jewellery piece from us will consist of, this article is for you.

Materials Used

Your jewellery can be divided in two areas. The first one being the core or base of your jewellery, which is the sum of all the material under the plating. It is responsible for most of the weight of your jewellery piece. The second one being the plating, which is only the top layer of your piece.




925 Sterling Silver

925 Sterling Silver

Silver is not only a metal, but is an element with the chemical symbol Ag. Just like gold or platinum, silver is a precious metal. Sterling silver consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper alloy. The addition of copper is necessary because silver is a very soft material and your jewellery could otherwise be damaged quickly. Jewellery and other items made of silver are often stamped 925 to indicate their composition as sterling silver. Visually, sterling silver has a softer shine than stainless steel. In terms of colour, sterling silver is more white.

In comparison with stainless steel, Sterling Silver has a stable value and looks more elegant than stainless steel. Sterling Silver is a bit softer than stainless steel, which makes it a perfect material for processing like engraving or cutting. Overall, Sterling Silver is a great pick if you like to wear high quality, durable silver coloured jewellery.

18K Gold

Gold belongs like silver to the precious metals and is also a chemical element with the symbol Au. The purity of Gold is historically expressed in carats. 24 carats correspond to pure Gold. 18 carats consist of 3/4 out of pure Gold and 1/4 out of other metals, in our case a copper alloy and Sterling Silver. Also, for Gold the addition of another metal is necessary because pure gold is just like pure silver too soft to be processed and could be damaged too quickly. Your jewellery piece will still be stamped with 925 even if it has a Gold plating, this comes because the metal stamp refers to the base material and not the plating. Visually, 18K Gold is less yellow than 24K Gold but more yellow than 14K Gold.

In comparison with copper or stainless steel, 18K Gold also has a stable value and looks more elegant than non-precious metals. 18K Gold is also a great pick if you want to wear high quality, durable gold coloured jewellery.
