Materials and Care
How can I be sure I'm buying gold items or Silver?
All items in Silver or gold will be marked 925, 375 or 800 on the respective contrast (applied by a exempt entity such as Contrastaria do Porto) which guarantees the authenticity of the pieces. In addition to this brand, there will always be another brand, designated as a responsibility brand, belonging to the manufacturer.
Where are parts designed and produced?
All our pieces are designed and produced in Portugal.
What does it mean to be bathed in gold?
In Portugal there has always been a tradition of gold. With the arrival of less favorable economic times, people ended up buying less gold and joining Gold Plated.
Your pieces will be covered with a very thin layer of gold through an electrolytic process in which microscopic gold particles adhere to your piece, giving it a golden finish.
What does it mean to be rhodium plated? What is it for?
Silver undergoes a natural oxidation process over time, tending to become darker. Through a rhodium bath (also a precious metal) the piece will be more protected, preventing oxidation from being so fast. Your pieces will be covered with a very thin layer of rhodium through an electrolytic process in which microscopic rhodium particles adhere to your piece, giving it a silver finish.
What is the difference between 9 karat gold and 19 karat gold?
9 karat gold has a lower purity than 19 karat gold. In the case of the first, in every 1000 parts of metal there are 375 that are pure gold, contrary to what happens in 19-karat gold, which in every 1000 parts 800 are pure gold. Due to this difference, the durability of 9 karat gold pieces is quite different from 19 karat gold.
What care should I take with my pieces?
Silver is a precious metal sensitive to moisture, heat, chemicals, cosmetics, atmospheric pollution, among others. Changing the color of the piece does not mean a change in its quality.
Please follow the instructions below to keep your parts as good as new:
Store your pieces individually, it may be in the packaging they were sent in, thus reducing the risk of damaging them;
NO should you apply cleaning liquids to your pieces since all of them will already be bathed (gold or rhodium);
If you want to give your pieces a new bath, we will do it for free
