We make jewelry so comfortable and sturdy that you can put it on and never put it down. All Nyssa pieces are expertly handcrafted using only the finest ethically-sourced materials. We’re serious about sustainability, so we only use real solid gold and sterling silver that is recycled or responsibly-sourced following Fairtrade standards.
9K Solid Gold
The pureness of gold is measured in karats (different from ‘carats’ with a ‘c’) in parts of 24. Gold is naturally very soft and fragile, so alloys are added to increase its durability and hardness. 9-Karat solid gold contains 9 parts of gold and 15 parts of alloys. Extremely durable and accessible, our 9-karat gold pieces are perfect for those looking for affordable jewelry to wear every day without worrying about scuffing and scratching.
18K Solid Gold
18-Karat solid gold is made of 18 parts of gold and 6 parts of alloys, making it very high in its purity. 18K is the closest you can get to pure gold without sacrificing on durability and strength. With a rich yellow color, stunning shine, and a high percentage of pure gold, our 18K gold jewelry strikes the perfect balance between luxury and longevity.
Vermeil jewelry is made of solid sterling silver and plated with a layer of gold. To be considered vermeil, this coating needs to have a thickness of at least 1.5 microns, and the gold used must be at least 10-karats in purity. We go the extra mile, and gild all our vermeil jewelry using 2.5 microns of 18-karat solid gold, a coating that is 50% thicker than traditionally gold-plated pieces. With a perfect balance between quality and value, our vermeil pieces make a great addition to your jewelry essentials.
925 Sterling Silver
While beautiful in color, pure silver is too soft to be made into jewelry. That’s why most silver jewelry is made of 925 sterling silver: a mix of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals, like copper. While sturdier than pure silver, sterling silver jewelry without plating is still prone to tarnishing. We plate all our solid silver pieces with a layer of rhodium to keep it looking bright, smooth, and scratch-less for years to come.
