Marmara Sterling is all hand-made jewelry, combining high quality SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS with sterling silver findings. This means that the majority of design innovations and novelties originate from Swarovski. However, Marmara Sterling is dedicated to designing and producing also jewelry that is unique to our brand.

All our earrings, pendants and rings, as well as most of the other metal parts are manufactured of 925 sterling silver. Silver is called sterling silver if the silver content in the metal is equal to or more than 92,5% (hence the name 925 silver). Thus all of the jewelry bares the 925 stamp and also the name stamp of our company - this is required by the Estonian Law of Precious Metals.

As sterling silver oxydizes very easily turning the metal black, all of the silver parts in our jewelry are rhodium plated. Rhodium is a rare metal (in fact more expensive than gold!) which prevents the jewelry from oxydizing, so it will maintain its shiny look for a much longer period of time. Rhodium-plating is done by a process called electrolysis.

We have also in our selection a variety of jewelry for those who wear only gold - our sterling silver jewelry comes also gold-plated. This is done by a similar process as rhodium-plating except that instead of rhodium, 585 gold is used.

For some of our products, including rings, pendants and earrings, a special Swarovski clay called Ceralun is used. This is a special two-component clay designed for setting Swarovski crystals. This highly durable material guarantees your jewelry the best quality and endurance.
