All earwires are surgical steel that is plated with a minimum of 9 mls of gold. There is NO NICKEL used in the plating process so the earwires are certified nickel-free. The gold tone finish is a tarnish resistant 18K gold finish over brass, the silver tone finish is a tarnish resistant rhodium over brass and the copper finish is a rose gold over brass. All stones are semi-precious and glass beads, natural materials and genuine Austria Crystal is also used to accent Silver Forest Jewelry.
Three color process are used in the finishing of Silver Forest Jewelry. They are: The ceramic color process which is a heat baked color process which creates depth to each piece. The colors are opaque and because the finish is baked, the ceramic will lst longer than other paint processes. It is important to note that there will be slight color variations in the jewelry due to the different textures on the metal.
The patina finish, also known as oxidized brass is the second process. This treatment creates a speeding of the oxidation of the metal and each piece of metal reacts differently to the treatment. This is the beauty of the patina and no two pieces will ever look exactly alike.
The third color process is a hand-painted color wash. The wash medium is a special formulation containing acrylic and lacquer which creates a very durable translucent finish. This color process is used to reveal the texture of the metal and have a sueded silk appearance.
