Our Quality

We take great pride in the materials we use, with all of our jewellery crafted using 925 sterling silver as a base and a thick layer of 18k gold plating that makes our pieces durable and long-lasting.

All of our jewellery is made using 925 silver as a base. All Apollon Jewellery pieces have a 925 stamp on them which is a guarantee of the quality and purity of the silver.

Our 18k gold plating process involves a thick layer of gold plating, ensuring that our jewellery will last for years to come. 

We understand that many people have sensitive skin and may have difficulty finding jewellery that doesn’t cause irritation or allergic reactions. That’s why we take great care in crafting jewellery that is hypoallergenic and safe for even the most sensitive skin. Our 18k gold plating process is free from nickel and other common irritants, ensuring that our jewellery is safe and comfortable to wear.

FAQs

Apollon jewellery is made of solid sterling silver (925) and is beautifully plated with high-quality 18k gold. We also incorporate freshwater pearls and cubic zirconia crystals in our designs.

18 karat gold is composed primarily of pure gold, but it also contains a blend of other alloy metals that contribute to its exquisite golden hue. This mixture includes metals, such as silver, copper, zinc, or palladium, which are selected based on the desired colour of the gold.

The process of applying 18k gold plating to jewellery involves several steps, including the following:

  1. Cleaning: Before plating, the jewellery must be cleaned thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, or other impurities that may affect the plating process.
  2. Preparing the Base Metal: Silver is polished and prepared for plating by applying a layer of a special solution to create a smooth surface.
  3. Applying the Gold Plating: Once the base metal is prepared, the gold plating solution is applied to the surface of the jewellery using an electroplating process. The jewellery is submerged in the solution, and an electrical current is applied, causing the gold to be deposited onto the surface of the jewellery. The length of time the jewellery is left in the solution and the strength of the electrical current used determine the thickness and quality of the gold plating.
  4. Finishing: After the gold plating is applied, the jewellery is rinsed, dried, and polished to give it a smooth and lustrous finish.

Firstly, the “k” in “14k” or “16k” refers to the karat weight of the gold used in the plating process. A higher karat weight indicates a higher percentage of pure gold in the plating solution. 18k gold plating contains a higher percentage of pure gold, which means that it is more resistant to tarnishing and fading over time.

Secondly, 18k gold plating is thicker than 14k and 16k gold plating. This means that the layer of gold on the jewellery is more durable and less likely to wear off over time. Thicker plating also means that the jewellery will maintain its luxurious and high-end appearance for longer.

Lastly, 18k gold plating tends to have a richer and more vibrant colour than 14k and 16k gold plating. This is because 18k gold contains a higher percentage of pure gold, which gives it a deeper and more lustrous hue.

  • Keep jewellery away from excessive water and chemicals; 
  • Remove when exercising; 
  • Store in a soft pouch;
  • Store each earring in a separate pouch or compartment; 
  • Polish gently with a cloth.

Our 18k plated gold, is less likely to tarnish than other types of jewellery. However, unlike solid gold jewellery, gold-plated items may tarnish over time. Proper care and maintenance are necessary to prevent tarnishing and ensure the jewellery stays looking its best. If handled with proper care, 18k gold plated jewellery should endure for numerous years with little evidence of wear and tear.

Our 18k gold plated jewellery is considered safe for individuals with a nickel allergy.
