18 karat gold-plating
Our jewelry is available in 925 sterling silver or gold-plated brass.
The thickness of the gold layer is decisive for the quality and durability of the jewelry piece.
The gold-plating strength is given in millième (fine gold content, weight) or micron (thickness of the gold layer).
We use a thick layer of at least 3 microns for all our jewelry. And since rings are most exposed to daily wear, we use at least 5 microns for all our rings. Our necklaces come with a 10 millième gold-plating.
Specific alloys are used to gold-plate a piece of jewelry. At heroyne, we work with 18 karat gold. We use mainly brass as a base as it is very lightweight.
Regarding our materials, we focus on certified and sustainable products, such as recycled gold and silver.
It is essential for us to only work with materials that are very long-lasting and that you can use in your daily life for years to come.
