JEWELRY QUALITY & INFORMATION
What is Gold Plating? Gold Plating is the method of depositing a layer of gold onto a conductive surface (the base material of the jewelry).
Some companies use copper as base metal, but most high-end jewelry companies go with 925 sterling silver for stronger quality. Sterling Silver is over 92.5% pure silver, mixed with alloys to add strength and durability. And it won’t wear down, like silver plating can. It’s is a precious metal that has been used for thousands of years. It’s affordable and beautiful, which is why Voare uses this metal in all of their products.
What is a Cubic Zirconia? A Cubic Zirconia is the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide. It’s a synthetic stone, but it just as bright and clear as a diamond! Like diamonds, the quality of cubic zirconia varies widely. Quality can be based on weight (carats), clarity, color, and cut, but the quality of cubic zirconia can also be measured by another system.
The “A” System of Rating Cubic Zirconia
AB CZ – Lowest Quality
AAA CZ – Highest Quality
The highest quality stones are hard and clear, where the lowest quality stones are cloudy and soft.Voare uses the AAA CZ, which is also sometimes called a Clear CZ because it is clear of imperfections!
