How to Choose: Unlocking the Secret to Long-Lasting Jewelry
Jewelry has the power to take your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. Whether you're donning your favorite pair of jeans and a T-shirt or a dress that flatters just right, the right jewelry adds that special touch of sophistication and elegance. However, a piece of jewelry is only as good as its longevity - the last thing you want is to see your favorite piece showing signs of wear and tear.
Let's explore the ingredients to finding jewelry that stands the test of time and retains its quality and allure.
Foundations Matter: The Importance of Base Metal
Every great structure is built upon a strong foundation - jewelry is no different. The base metal, the 'invisible' part of your jewelry, plays a critical role in ensuring durability and resistance against wear and tear.
At Koréil, we focus on industry-grade base materials: 316L Surgical-grade Stainless Steel for our gold jewelry and 925 Sterling Silver for our gold vermeil pieces.
These materials offer a significant upgrade from commonly used materials such as brass and copper. Stainless steel, for instance, is highly durable and resistant to scratches, making it the ideal base metal for everyday wear. Plus, it's waterproof! So, yes, it's okay to keep your jewelry on during your shower.
All that Glitters: The Role of Gold Coating
The eye-catching sparkle of your jewelry is due to the gold coating that covers the base metal. But the process and quality of this coating play a crucial part in your jewelry's longevity.
We employ a process called PVD coating, which encases the base metal in a 1.5-2 microns thick layer of 18K gold, up to four times thicker than most gold-plated jewelry in the market. This meticulous process yields a brilliant, durable finish to guarantee a long life for your pieces.
Moreover, we use titanium nitride to harden the coating, increasing its resistance to corrosion significantly compared to standard gold plating.
Sensitive to Metals? We've Got You Covered
Metal sensitivity is more common than you might think, with typical culprits being brass, zinc, nickel, and lead. Don't worry, though - we've ensured our jewelry is hypoallergenic, a feature we're particularly proud of. So for those with sensitive skin, rest assured that Koréil Jewelry is a safe choice.
