Bracelet are popular jewellery item
At Blue Nile, all our platinum bracelets are made of platinum. Blue Nile gold bracelets are made from the finest 18k. This provides a perfect match of beauty and durability. Pure 24k gold is soft and easily bent while 14k gold is mixed with other metals that potentially dull the color of your gold bracelet.
Our silver bracelets are crafted from the highest-quality pure sterling silver, and all are inspected for a fineness mark to ensure quality. Our sterling silver charm bracelets and charms are created exclusively for Blue Nile. Our high-quality charms feature a custom lobster claw, designed to precisely fit either of our unique bracelets.
How Durable is My Gemstone Jewellery?
First of all a note about the hardness and therefore relative durability of gemstones. To measure hardness, the jewellery industry uses the Mohs scale. This gem-trade standard, conceived by Friedrich Mohs in 1812, measures the ability of a gem or mineral to resist abrasion damage.
Diamond at 10 is the hardest whereas talc at 1 is the softest. Popular gemstones like amethyst and citrine register 7 whereas rubies and sapphires register 9. Most of us come off the beach on the first day with the 3 sís all achieved - rings caked in sand, sea-salt and suntan lotion. Nude sunbathing, as far as silver and gold jewellery is concerned, is a must! Remember also that sand will scratch the surface of precious metals.
Information about Silver Jewellery
Silver Jewelry can be found at every place and it is classified as precious or it can be non-precious. It could be any style piece from a necklace to earrings to a brooch to a bracelet. Some silver Jewellery can have precious and semi-precious stones. But, for the most part, it is all about the collector and what they personally like to collect. These types of ornaments are mostly marked.
Many different collectors create and maintain a person website describing what they personally collect and enjoy. The non-precious style is known as costume Jewellery. This antique term should only apply to pieces that are, at the very least 50 years old or more. Another aspect that well will discuss is the fake Jewellery aspects.
