It is a durable metal for the base of jewelry, which perfectly holds its shape indefinitely. In addition, it is a precious metal that can be easily melted down into other products. Silver is hypoallergenic, does not change its color and does not stain the skin.
Sterling silver plated with gold is much denser than conventional gold-plating. It will last for several years and then can be covered with gold again.

About Les Meres
Kim Harmsen's career in the fashion and marketing industry paved the way for her to become the driving force behind her own jewelry brand, Les Mères. A pivotal moment in her life came when she embraced motherhood with the birth of her first daughter, inspiring Kim's creative journey to infuse the transformative essence of motherhood into her jewelry designs. This journey culminated in the birth of Les Mères in 2020. Derived from the French term for "The Mothers," Les Mères embodies the profound concept of motherhood in all its forms. At its core lie pearls, universal symbols of rebirth, serving as the foundational element for Les Mères' creations.
Sustainability Les Meres specializes in crafting exquisite Pearl Jewelry Treasures, meticulously handmade in both the Netherlands and Bali. These beautiful pieces feature freshwater pearls sourced from a family-run 'pearl farm' in the picturesque town of Shanxiahu, China, ensuring utmost quality and sustainability. Embracing the uniqueness of each pearl, Les Meres creates one-of-a-kind jewelry that holds a timeless allure, designed to be cherished for a lifetime. As a remarkable slow-fashion brand, their focus on top-quality craftsmanship means their creations are destined to be adored for years to come, unaffected by fleeting trends. Rest assured, these pearls will forever maintain their relevance and significance.
We love Les Meres for its own authentic style, which is very elegant at the same time. It's a special treat to know that your jewelry is one of a kind (and many of Kim's pieces are just that).
