18K GOLD - Whenever you see gold in Lolovivi jewelry, you can be assured that it is 18K gold. 18K is the premium standard in the jewelry industry worldwide because there is more pure gold in 18K gold than in 14K gold. They are both alloys and have other metals mixed in to improve durability, but 18k gold is approximately 75% pure gold and 14K gold is approximately 59% pure gold. In many parts of the world, 18K is expected by consumers, particularly in Europe, where essentially all fine jewelry is 18K.
From an aesthetic perspective, because 18k gold is more pure, it has a richer, more appealing yellow color than 14K yellow gold color.
BLACK PLATINUM - One of the design elements that distinguishes the Lolovivi line is our use of Black Platinum. The scientific term for our Black Platinum is “Ruthenium”, which is a rare platinum group metal. We love the look of black in our designs and we always want to be sure that the entirety of every piece of Lolovivi jewelry is made with premium metals.
STERLING SILVER - Silver jewelry can be fabulously stylish and we love to incorporate it into our designs. When we do, we always use the finest 925 Sterling Silver available. The composition of 925 Sterling Silver is 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent alloy. Alloying silver with additional metals is the process that produces sterling silver, making it stronger and more durable. Other, lesser types of silver have lower percentages of silver and higher concentration of alloy materials. True 925 Sterling Silver is more expensive but if you want silver jewelry that will last, 925 Sterling Silver is unquestionably the best choice.
