What materials are used for Nikki Lissoni jewellery?
High quality cast brass
Nikki Lissoni jewellery is cast from super fine, high quality brass alloy. This purest of grades achieves high strength and accuracy for the locking tension of the precision cast clip and secure hinge mechanism. It also provides an excellent key for the application of silver, gold and rose gold in the plating process. The chains are made from drawn brass and possess the same high standard of finish.
Silver, gold and rose gold plating
All Nikki Lissoni jewellery is plated with a thick silver, gold or rose gold layer.
All Nikki Lissoni jewellery is covered with an unique ceramic coating. Very fine ceramic particles make a very hard resilient layer that will not only protect the jewellery against small damages, but will protect it against tarnishing too. Note that coming in contact with any product containing a high alkaline content such as hair spray, perfumes and soap can damage the ceramic coating.
For a large part of the collection Nikki Lissoni has made use of Swarovski Crystals to add another elegant dimension. Jewellery that has such decorations need the right care and attention as described by SWAROVSKI®.
Nikki Lissoni uses a large variety of cut and polished semi-precious stones that are used for appealing decoration of the jewellery. Care should be taken when coming into contact with other materials.
All enamel is delicately hand applied and carefully baked for durability.
Any Nikki Lissoni jewellery using pearls, including mother of pearl shell or freshwater pearls, should NEVER be placed in water containing detergents or chemicals. Special care should be taken with pearls as any product containing a high alkaline content such as hair spray, perfumes and soap can damage them.
Leather is a natural product that will benefit from careful protection. Do not use in water or other liquids that may cause discolouration or absorption. Leather can stretch and relax over time; stretching is not a defect in this product. As a natural feature of genuine leather, you may notice gentle shading and variations in colour. You may also experience a change in the shade of the leather due to contact with oils in your skin.
