Want to know what's in your Missoma pieces? Our Senior Designer and Product Developer Kat talks us through each 'ingredient' that's used in our jewellery - and why we keep going back to them to make the pieces you love.
As one of the first demi-fine brands (before it was coined demi-fine), we have always used gold vermeil. Starting with a sterling silver base, a thick 2.5 microns of real 18ct gold is then layered on top via electroplating. They're extra-durable to make them last longer - even on dainty styles.
p.s. a note on nickel
None of our suppliers add nickel to our jewellery or any nickel layers to any of our platings. However, nickel cannot be extracted 100% and although it's present at a legal percentage of less than 0.01%, if you're hyper-sensitive it's best to avoid wearing any kind of jewellery, just to be on the safe side.
