This is a special jewelry alloy that usually uses copper and zinc in varying proportions. Brass, unlike silver, is not considered a precious metal. However, it is much stronger than silver, because jewelry made from it is more wear-resistant.
In such a coating there will be 91.6% pure gold with a small percentage of impurities, which will provide additional stability to the alloy. Gold of this carat has a very rich golden color.
This is a very thick coating that will last 4-5 years until the first traces of wear. Great for rings and bracelets. And you can wear earrings with such a coating for more than 10 years.
A layer of gold is applied over the base metal. Over time (depending on the thickness of the coating), this layer will gently rub off. However, the decoration can always be recoated.
Alice Blofeld's jewellery brand, Shyla, is a celebration of womanhood and sustainability. With a passion for vintage jewellery, Alice created Shyla to fill a gap in the market for affordable, timeless pieces made with recycled metals and coloured hydro glass. Based in London, the female-led brand empowers women through its distinctive aesthetic, focusing on designs meant to outlast fleeting fashion trends. Shyla's commitment to sustainability and uplifting women extends beyond its products. And with Kate Middleton as a big fan, sporting their Chunky Knot Baroque Pearl Earrings and Biaritz Gold-Plated Sterling Silver Squiggle Earrings, it's clear why this brand is making waves in the jewellery world.
Sustainability Shyla, the ethical jewellery brand, creates beautiful pieces with a positive impact. Production is in Birmingham and India, ensuring utmost care, sustainability and ethical practices. By partnering with small Indian charities, the brand empowers vulnerable women, while using recycled materials and eco-friendly packaging.
We love Shyla for its perfect quality with a reasonable price. The brand adheres to the philosophy of slow fashion: all jewelry is out of trend, with a very thick gold plating, and therefore created to be worn for a very long time.
