We offer various metals Sterling Silver 925 10K & 14K Gold, Goldfilled & Stainless Steel. Below we explain what the difference is between each one of them.
Sterling Silver 925
Silver is a precious metal, like gold and platinum. Zafiro uses and buys only the best quality silver and will stamp the jewelry with 925 to indicate metal. We include a certificate of authentication when a piece is handcrafted and unable to stamp it with 925.
Silver sometimes will tarnish when exposed to a certain environment which causes a chemical reaction on the surface of the metal. Everyday products such as perfumes, colognes, dishwashing soap, hair care, products, chlorine, can cause this reaction. Additionally, some people’s body chemistry and skin oils can cause silver to tarnish. Please contact us for more information and tips to prevent or treat silver tarnish.
10K & 14K Gold
The term “ Karat” desingates the amount of gold found in a piece of jewelry. Jewelry is commonly made in 10K,14K. And 18K, as pure gold is mixed with other metals to produce a harder, more workable metal. Zafiro offers a seletion of 10K, 14k and 18 K white, yellow and rose gold.
Jewelry composed of a solid thick layer of gold mechanically bonded to a base of either sterling silver or some base metal.This will help it wear longer than gold plating.
It is a strong, durable and rust-resistant jewelry. It typically has a silver sheen, but, unlike silver, it will not corrode and it not susceptible to scratches, dings or dents.It contains nickel so if you are allergic this type of jewelry will not be a good choice.
