- Necklaces & Pendants
The metal we use in our jewelry is mostly brass. Brass is an alloy that essentially consists of copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn). Typically made of copper and brass 67% 33% zinc, but by varying the concentrations of copper and zinc, to produce different colors. Increases copper content becomes the brass redder, lowered the levels below 50% to get a white brass. By adding other metals can also bring out the qualities that make the brass suitable for different uses.
Nickel is added not to the brass, nickel can be used as surface treatment in cases where you want a shiny silver metal color of the final product.
After what insured us by our suppliers provide parts in our jewellery not nickel. However, there is one, of us known, except from this. It is the basis for our hair clips, i.e. the actual hair clasp, sold in hobby shops in Sweden marked "Manage nickel borders".
