Jewelry is that perfect accessory that ties your outfit together. When you're wearing a dress that fits just perfect, or your favourite pair of boyfriend jeans and t-shirt - right jewelry is the glue to your entire look.
When you're on the lookout for jewelry that is meant to last and keep its quality there are a few key points to keep in mind:
Choose your base metal wisely
The key to long-lasting jewelry pieces lays in the base metal of your favourite jewelry. At Koréil, we solely focus on stainless steel and sterling silver. Stainless steel is a very robust metal that is highly durable and it does not show signs of daily wear, unlike brass or copper. A perfect metal to choose if you are looking to wear your jewelry daily, stainless steel resists scratches and does not show signs of tear. Additionally, stainless steel is a resistant and safe choice for body jewelry due to a layer of
chromium, which prevents oxidation. Rest assured, you won't be getting your body parts stained green with Koréil jewelry.
Besides being highly durable, Koréil stainless steel jewelry is PVD 18k gold plated, measuring from 1-5 to 2 microns, which is up to 4 times thicker than most other gold plated jewelry on the market. Physical Vapour Deposition, or PVD, is a vacuum coating process that results in a brilliant finish made to secure the quality of your jewelry pieces. PVD utilises a titanium nitride that provides an extremely durable coating, significantly more resistant to corrosion from sweat and wear than regular gold plating.
What if I am sensitive to some metals?
Unlike brass and zinc alloy which contain nickel and lead and are definitely not hypoallergenic, the type of stainless steel that we use in designing Koréil jewelry pieces is nickel and lead-free, making our pieces safe for more sensitive skin. As such, Koréil jewelry is a safe choice if you have metal sensitivities and it most certainly won't stain your skin or tarnish.
How timeless are your pieces?
While we continuously focus on designing tarnish-free, water and sweat-resistant durable jewelry pieces, there is yet another element that ensures your jewelry lasts through seasons - and that is design. Koréil gold plated and gold vermeil jewelry is designed so that each piece fits in seamlessly with the other. Even more so, each piece is made to fit your style, elevate your wardrobe and make your day just that much better. We focus on timeless forms, elegant yet minimalistic, but slightly bold lines that never go out of style. At Koréil, we believe that trends are for seasons but style is for ever, which is why Koréil jewelry is meant to be your lasting partner for a long while.
