A Guide To Our Materials

Discover the unique qualities of the precious metals we use in our handmade jewellery in this handy guide to our materials.

At Becky’s Boutique, we work hard to find not only the best materials for each jewellery design but also those that help to protect our planet. We are committed to ensuring that our metals are responsibly sourced and our suppliers are members of the Responsible Jewellery Council.

925 Sterling Silver

Silver is a soft, white metal valued for its beauty and versatility. 925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. It’s perfect for jewellery as it preserves the colour, lustre and mass of pure silver while significantly improving the metal’s durability, meaning your favourite pieces last longer.

Solid Gold

The oldest metal known to mankind, gold is the perfect material for almost any design with its natural brilliance, beautiful lustre and resistance to tarnish. Starting with our 9ct Gold Stacking Ring, we are working on plans to build out our fine collection with pieces made from 100% recycled gold which has none of the associated human or environmental problems that can sometimes be associated with mining.

Gold & Rose Gold Vermeil

It sounds fancy and it is fancy (it’s pronounced ‘ver-may’); but what does it mean, and how is it different to ‘gold plated’? While it’s not a commonly known phrase, you should learn to love Gold Vermeil. To be classed as such, the piece must have a base of sterling silver, and the thickness of the gold must be a minimum of 2.5 microns. The plating process is different too – Gold Vermeil is plated with a process known as ‘electrolysis’, making the jewellery very durable.

Gold & Rose Gold Filled

Our 14k Gold Filled jewellery has a layer of gold pressure bonded to a base metal (commonly, brass) and is a quality alternative to solid gold, offering its characteristic warm yellow or blushing rose tones at a fraction of the price.

Gold & Rose Gold Plate

We are sensitive to the affordability of our jewellery, so the pieces from our signature Rose Collection are also available in gold or rose gold plate (over a base metal of copper), with a layer of anti-tarnish on top for extra durability.
