Matières

Sterling silver

It is a denomination that certifies that the jewelry is composed of 975 thousandths of silver. Since a decree from the 18th of July 2000, the European norms prohibit the addition of nickel, considered an allergen.

White gold

White gold is rhodium-plated, meaning it is covered with a fine layer of metal (rhodium) to give it its white color. With a base of 75% gold (18 karats), we transform the originally yellow metal into a white gold base by adding silver, around 15% copper, and in some cases, palladium.

Yellow gold

With a base of 75% pure gold (18 karats), yellow gold is also composed of about 12,5% silver and 12,5% copper.

Rose gold

With a base of 75% pure gold (18 karats), we obtain rose gold by slightly increasing the copper in the alloy recipe. About 20% copper with 5% silver. Yellow gold is also composed of approximately 12,5% silver and 12,5% copper.

Vermeil

Lighter than gold, this material is composed of sterling silver (975 thousandths) coated with a minimum of 5 microns of 18k gold. It is, in particular, the metal used to create British crowns.
