The fact that buying jewelry cheers up, relieves stress and improves well-being has been proven by scientists and psychologists more than once. Even their choice in the online store introduces into a trance, which allows you to escape from everyday thoughts. This process is more beneficial than 8 hours of sleep.

However, jewelry made of gold and silver with natural stones is not affordable for everyone. Even Hollywood stars cannot afford to buy them, but more often they rent or buy analogue jewelry. It is produced in such original designs that the classic jeweler could not even dream of.

jewelry composition

The ancestor of jewelry is Coco Chanel. It was she who began to create inexpensive accessories, the hallmarks of which are chic and luxury. She was one of the first to refuse jewelry, preferring bright clip-on earrings, pearl necklaces and trendy bracelets with pendants. Her stylish products skillfully combined discreet extravagance and rich colors, ethnic ornaments and geometric shapes.

Modern jewelry is:

  • elite — imitates branded jewelry Chanel, Dior, Tiffany, Gucci, etc. For its manufacture, foiling and electroplating are used — a method of spraying silver and gold with tin, brass, copper, nickel. Swarovski crystals, cubic zirkonia, zirconium pearls are what expensive jewelry is made of;

  • jewelry — made from medical gold (surgical steel) and semi-precious stones, it is of high quality. When creating it, amber, corals, artificial pearls of various shapes and shades are used. Some models are made with an enamel coating. Thanks to high-quality materials, as well as an impeccable exquisite frame, these accessories are in no way inferior to natural jewelry, except for the cost;

  • avant-garde and vintage — highly artistic works of art made of steel, platinum, bronze. They are made mainly by hand from stainless steel, artificial resins, plastics, rhinestones. They are absolutely self-sufficient products and do not even claim to be jewelry;

  • ethnic — a special style that uses motifs from different peoples of the world. Ethno jewelry is made of copper, tin, bronze, Murano glass, mother-of-pearl and beads.

What is jewelry alloy?

It is a substance consisting of two chemical components. It contains a base metal for jewelry and an alloying additive that gives the alloy the desired properties, such as strength, hardness, good machinability and color depending on the proportion (white, pink, red, etc.).

  • for silver — copper, cadmium, titanium, zinc, aluminum, plating with ruthenium, rhodium and brass;

  • for gold — palladium, copper, nickel, zinc, platinum, plating with osmium, rhodium, palladium.
