What types of metals are Colette Marie Jewellery made of?

Gold Vermeil

Vermeil is a precious metal. It is sterling silver that has been plated with 18k gold. This is a good combination, particularly for those allergic to normal, plated jewellery items. The difference between vermeil, and gold-filled, is in the thickness of the gold and the base metal used.

Gold Filled

Filled, also known as 'rolled gold', compromises of a base metal (usually brass or copper) which has been permanently covered with sheets of 14k gold in a mechanical bonding process.

Sterling Silver

Sterling Silver is a mixture of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5%, other metals, most commonly copper. The resulting alloy strengthens the silver.

Silver Plated

The majority of Colette Marie silver jewellery is sterling silver, with the exception of the 'Maureen Necklace' and 'Sarah Earrings', which includes some silver plated elements.
