All of our jewellery is made from high quality nickel free, sterling silver 925. Pure silver can be too soft for jewellery production as it can scratch easily and is therefore not as durable.
Silver is therefore mixed with other metals (alloyed) to create a stronger, more durable metal. Sterling Silver therefore consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals such as copper.
None of our products contain cadmium, nickel or lead so it is hypoallergenic.
Like all metals, Sterling Silver will change over time with wear and exposure to the elements. The shine of your silver will soften and textures will mellow and develop a subtle shine. These changes are a natural characteristic of the materials and are not considered faulty.
Gold Plating and Gold Vermeil
All of our gold plated or gold vermeil pieces in either yellow or rose gold consist of a nickel free 925 sterling silver base and have been finished with gold plating. Our gold plating and gold vermeil pieces consist of a minimum of 14k gold in either rose or yellow gold.
Gold plating and gold vermeil do wear away with time, often into an antiqued look, which we love. These changes are a natural characteristic of the materials and are not considered faulty. It is important to follow the care instructions to extend the life of your gold finish.
