What is Fine Jewelry?

Fine jewelry is a jewelry that is made of precious metals, common types are sterling silver, rhodium, palladium and/or platinum.


Fine jewelry is normally set at a higher price than fashion jewelry which is made of metals/ materials such as brass, copper, stainless steel, wood or plastic. The higher price is set because fine jewelry is made from quality materials that are often more durable, stronger, and expensive to make. A jeweler requires a high level of skill and equipment to create original pieces made of precious metals.


With proper care and storage, fine jewelry will not tarnish as quickly and can possibly last for thousands of years. They are also recyclable, can be repaired, changed, and resized.


To buy a silver jewelry, with or without gold plating, make sure to check for a "sterling" or "925” or “S925” (meaning it's 92.5% silver) stamp and avoid anything that is silver-plated because its base metal is usually brass or copper alloys in order to keep the prices low. Such metals may cause skin allergy, particularly when the silver plating is worn off.
