22k Gold & Rhodium Plating
Our Gold plating refers to jewellery that consists of a thin layer of gold that is applied over the top of 925 Sterling silver. Many jewellery brands use a base metal as a more economical production method to achieve the same look. However, we only use Sterling silver which helps to keep the shine and gilding for longer.
We also use Rhodium plating over Sterling silver to increase the durability of the jewellery and make it whiter, brighter, and more reflective. Solid silver is too soft to be fashioned into jewellery, so it contains 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals. The traces of other metals in Sterling silver can cause tarnishing so adding rhodium plating prevents this from happening. The rhodium plating also helps protect it from scratches and wear.
The metals that we use to craft our jewellery do not contain any hazardous substances such as Nickel, Lead, Cobalt, Chromium, Mercury, Cadmium etc.
