How Your Jewelry is Made
All of Very Last Detail's precious metals are stamped with 14K (gold) stamp or 0.925 (sterling silver) stamp.
- 14K Gold is 58% Gold (14/24) and bears the stamp 14K (we offer by special request)
- Sterling Silver is 92.5% pure silver (925/100) and bears the stamp 925 or 0.925
- 24K Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold on to the surface of sterling silver so it will bear the 925 or 0.925 stamp.
Gold plated jewelry is made by using electricity or chemicals to deposit and bond a very thin layer of gold over another metal. This process creates a layer as thin as 1/1000 to 3/1000 of an inch of gold over a more affordable metal, usually silver or copper. Very Last Detail's base metal is the highest quality 925 Sterling Silver.
