Bimetal: A layer of 22k gold alloy with a bright yellow color is bonded with sterling silver to form a sheet of precious metal with two distinct surfaces. The 22k bimetal is two to three times thicker than gold filled products giving it more luster, flexibility and durability.
The oxidation of silver jewelry is the process of chemical alteration that occurs when certain minerals make contact with oxygen. The result is a darkening or coloring of the metal. A controlled acceleration of the process results in different shades of darkened silver.
