About materials

We use modern technologies as electroplating of rhodium on base of sterling silver and gold jewelry. Rhodium is a member of the platinum group. Rhodium gives our products flashing and a reflective white surface. This metal does not normally form an oxide, even when heated. Thanks rhodium our jewelry products keep high durability. Its also a very good protection against components of silver and gold allergy.
