At Upsera, we understand the importance of using high-quality and sustainable materials in our designs. Ethical sourcing and production are at the heart of everything we do. From precious metals to natural gemstones, we are proud to offer a range of materials that not only look stunning but are also responsibly sourced and produced. We want you to feel confident in the jewelry you wear, knowing that it was made with care and consideration for both the environment and the people involved in its creation. In this blog, we will take you on a journey through the different materials we use in our jewelry collections.
18k Gold Plated
18k gold plated jewelry offers an affordable and stylish alternative to solid gold. Our 18k solid gold pieces possess these qualities along with a beautiful and subtle hue, thanks to the 18k alloy. Our 18k gold plated pieces have a layer of 18k gold over a base metal, giving them a similar appearance to solid gold. This layering process also provides durability and resistance to tarnishing.
However, 18k gold-plated jewelry requires proper care to maintain its appearance. It is essential to avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals, water, and excessive sweat, as this can cause the gold plating to fade or wear off. At our company, we take pride in the quality of our 18k gold-plated jewelry, using only high-quality materials and plating techniques.
Some of our jewelry is made with rhodium plating that uses a layer of rhodium, a rare and precious metal that offers the jewelry a bright, white, and reflective surface enhancing its shine and durability.
Our rhodium-plated jewelry is highly resistant to tarnishing, scratches, and corrosion because rhodium is an excellent material for plating. It also protects against wear and tear, making it an ideal choice for pieces that are worn frequently. Our rhodium-plated jewelry is easy to care for, requiring only mild soap and water to clean.
Rose Gold Plated
Our rose-gold plated jewelry offers a stunning option for those seeking a warm and rosy hue for their jewelry. Our rose-gold plated pieces have a layer of copper and gold alloy over a base metal, providing a similar appearance to solid rose gold. This layering process offers durability and resistance to tarnishing, which ensures your jewelry will maintain its luster and shine for years to come.
Rose-gold plated jewelry is also more affordable than solid rose gold, making it an excellent option for those on a budget. We recommend avoiding exposure to harsh chemicals or abrasives in our rose-gold plated pieces, as these can cause the plating to wear off.
Our sterling silver collection features high-quality pieces made from 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% copper, offering a durable and elegant option for jewelry lovers. Our sterling silver pieces are known for their brilliant luster and timeless appeal.
All of our sterling silver pieces are stamped with the industry standard "925" to indicate their authenticity and quality. We use only the highest quality materials and techniques to ensure that our sterling silver jewelry maintains its shine and durability over time.
Proper care is essential to maintain the appearance of sterling silver jewelry. We recommend storing it in a cool, dry place, and avoiding exposure to harsh chemicals, extreme temperatures, and direct sunlight. To clean your sterling silver jewelry, we suggest using a soft cloth and mild soap and water.
Our Austrian crystals collection features stunning pieces that are made using high-quality crystals from Austria. Austrian crystals are known for their exceptional brilliance, clarity, and color, and are a popular choice for adding sparkle and elegance to jewelry.
At our company, we use only genuine Austrian crystals in our jewelry, ensuring that each piece offers a unique and stunning display of light and color. Our Austrian crystals are hand-cut and polished to ensure their brilliance and quality.
Our cubic zirconia collection features high-quality stones that offer a brilliant and affordable alternative to diamonds. Our cubic zirconia stones are cut and polished to perfection, offering a dazzling display of light and color that is sure to impress.
Cubic zirconia stones are also more durable than other gemstones, making them a popular choice for everyday wear. Our cubic zirconia collection includes a range of styles, from classic to modern, ensuring that there is something for every taste and occasion.
