At RIHAM SALEH studios I'm using 925 sterling silver, 925 Oxidized Sterling silver, 925 Sterling silver Rhodium plated, 925 Sterling silver 22k and 18k gold plated ( Vermeil ),14K and 18K gold-filled and in some designs, I'm using sterling silver with different coated colours.
Natural precious and semi-precious gemstones, genuine crystals and zircon.
What is gold vermeil?
Gold vermeil jewellery is much higher quality than regular plated jewellery. Plated jewellery often features a thin layer of gold on top of cheap mixed metals that may discolour or cause allergies.
Gold vermeil jewellery has a solid sterling silver base and a much thicker coating of gold (at least 2.5 microns). To ensure the best quality I work with a 3-micron coating.
What about gold-filled?
My gold-filled is a high-quality material, which has the same appearance as high carat gold, they even with daily wear, can last 10 to 30 years. The layer of gold on gold-filled items is 5 to 10 times thicker than that produced by regular gold plating.
It is composed of a solid layer of gold typically constituting at least 5% of the item's total weight.
18K and 14K are our top choices for quality and durability. It is an economical and quality alternative to solid gold.
It contains a layer of gold-pressure bonded to another metal. It is not to be confused with gold plating as filled has 100% more gold than gold plating.
All my materials are free of copper and nickel, so no worries about the allergies.
