Read on to learn the details of each material we use in our jewelry-


An affordable Luxury

Vermeil is the hottest luxury trend happening right now! It is an affordable alternative to solid gold as it strikes the perfect balance between quality and value. Gold vermeil is basically gold plating on sterling silver. It is much more precious than regular gold-plated jewelry because of the fine base metal. It is 5x thicker than "regular gold-plated" jewellery and 100x thicker than regular “flash-plated” jewellery. Therefore, your vermeil pieces will last for years to come.

You might know, the higher the purity of gold, the softer it is, allowing it to be scratched and damaged more easily. Therefore, Jewels by Nimsha carefully uses an ideal 18k gold layer on sterling silver. It is also an excellent pick if you have allergies to metals because sterling silver and gold are pure and hypoallergenic metals.


Make a luxe fashion statement

Rose Gold is another one in vogue, becoming a cool alternative metal for engagement rings and fashion-forward jewelry designs. Now that you are familiar with vermeil, it would be easier to comprehend rose gold vermeil. It is rose gold plating on sterling silver. It is important to understand how rose gold is formed- by delicately mixing pure gold with copper to give it that pinkish hue. Rose gold works well with most skin tones and is a chic alternative to more traditional yellow gold. Rose gold pairs well with sterling silver and can be worn casually or in more formal settings. In other words, it's extremely versatile and looks great on everyone!


The perfect combination of beauty, shine, and durability

Silver items have long been known as symbols of wealth and prosperity. Sterling silver jewelry is a high-quality choice consisting of 92.5% silver content - which makes it popular amongst jewelry collectors and designers alike. Sterling silver jewelry is durable, timeless metal, and when cared for properly, can last a lifetime. This type of jewelry is actually best worn every day as frequent use will prevent the buildup of tarnish and dust on the metal. So feel free to add sterling silver to your jewelry collection with the confidence that it is durable and when properly cared for, will look great today, tomorrow, and 10 years from now! It does not have any additives, like nickel or lead, making it safe for people with metal allergies.
