KNOW HOW

OUR MATERIALS

Why are we talking about 925 silver? 

Silver is a precious alloy composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals. 

Why this mixture? Because pure silver is malleable and delicate, we add other metals like zinc or copper to strengthen it. This mixture will make the silver strong and scratch-resistant. All our pieces are made of 925 silver.

What is vermeil?

Vermeil or vermeil gold is a precious metal composed of a 925 silver base covered with a thick layer of gold.

The gold is deposited on the silver through electroplating.

What is galvanization? It is a process used since the beginning of the 19th century. The silver jewelry is immersed in a bath of gold through which a continuous electric current flows, allowing the gold particles to be deposited. 

How much gold is deposited? The Gold thickness is measured in microns (thousandths of a millimeter); the higher the number of microns, the thicker the layer. Below 3 microns is not considered as vermeil. All our vermeil jewelry is 18 karat gold, 5 microns thick.

A quality material that guarantees durability.
