Misuzi Precious Metals
Misuzi uses a combination of Solid Gold, 925 Sterling Silver, Gold Filled and Vermeil Gold metals. All Misuzi pieces are completely hand made to order.
What is Gold Filled?
Gold Filled is made from solid gold and filled with a base metal. Gold Filled wears like solid gold as its outer surface is solid gold. Electro-plating or regular plating is NOT a part of this process.Gold Filled offers all the same physical characteristics as solid gold such as beauty, durability, strength and most importantly, longevity.
How is Gold Filled Made?
Gold Filled is made by fusing multiple thick layers of a selected Karat Gold, usually 12k or 14k for strength, to a suitable supporting metal (or alloy) using equipment that carefully controls pressure, heat, and time. The inner core metal is actually the same metal that is used in lower karated gold (like 9k, 14k, 18k) that provides strength and colour.
How Long Will Gold Filled Jewellery Last?
Gold, along with its other unique qualities, is virtually indestructible. It is not costume jewellery. Since you are guaranteed a substantial layer of gold on your Gold Filled jewellery, with reasonable care it will last for many years.
Misuzi uses only the finest precious and semi-precious gemstones including turquoise, opals, jade, rubies, amethyst, emeralds, coral, quartz, onyx and crystals.
Caring for your jewellery
To maintain your jewellery's life and lustre, frequent cleaning is recommended. Salt water, chlorine in swimming pools, soap, perfumes and perspiration take their toll on all fine jewellery. Wipe your jewellery carefully with a soft jewellery cloth to keep it clean and free of these elements that oxidise (tarnish). To avoid oxidisation of your sterling silver jewels, keep them in the velvet pouch provided. Do not use a jewellery cloth or any abrasive rub on any plated metals.
