SILVER

SILVER

llayers™ uses recycled sterling silver or 925 silver. This is the silver most often used in jewelry, sterling silver being too soft.

BRASS

llayers™ use brass that is preferably recycled and lead-free.

GOLD-FILLED

It's a thick, solid layer of gold deposited around the metal base by a process combining pressure and heat.

Gold-filled is more resistant than gold-plated, and 5% of the jewel's weight must be gold.
It is much more resistant over time and is the best finish after pure gold.
This also makes it much more expensive than gold-plating.

llayers™ use gold-filled on primers that go directly on the ear, all necklace primers as well as chains.

VERMEIL

Vermeil is silver (925 silver or sterling silver) plated with gold, covered with a minimum layer of 5 microns of gold.
The layer of gold is therefore often thicker than gold-plated.
It is more expensive than gold-plated because the plating is thicker and the base of the jewel is a silver jewel.

llayers™ uses vermeil on its fine rings and certain elements of necklaces and bracelets.

GOLD PLATED

Gold plating is a base (often brass, bronze or copper) coated with a layer of gold.
To obtain a gold-plated designation, French regulations require
a minimum thickness of 3 microns on the jewelry and it must be hallmarked with a square punch.
Gold plating is more resistant than fine gold plating because the layer of gold applied is much thicker.
It can, however, tarnish and chip over time and therefore has a shorter lifespan than
gold-filled or solid gold jewelry.

llayers™ uses gold plating on
bronze or brass, on its larger ring models and some pendant/necklace and earring elements.

GUILDED

Fine gold-plated brass is a brass base onto which a layer of pure gold is deposited, with a thickness of between 0.01 and 1 micron.
It's a very thin layer, and is the most fragile gilding there is.

llayers™ almost never uses gilding, but has a few fine gold-plated upcycling elements placed so as to rub minimally with the other
elements.
