QualityMany stories going around about fashion jewelry.
Most importantly, our jewelry is brass based as basic material and for watches we typically use stainless steel. Because brass is often not the color that fashion is asking for, we use a gold plating process through a complicated layer structure. This finally applies a microscopic layer of real gold, white gold or rose gold over brass.
As the international price of gold hovering around 40, - Euro per gram, the use of real gold is therefore minimal.
We do this to keep the TOV jewelery and watches affordable.
The microscopic gold layer is finally protected by a patented transparent layer called "cataphoresis". This finish makes the real gold layer is better protected and therefore less vulnerable for abrasion.
