What is Our Jewelry made of?

The metals found in Carolina Country Bling pieces are primarily made of iron and include other trace minerals. Those trace minerals are made up of a metallic alloy of either zinc, steel, or aluminum.

There are also pieces that are made from sterling silver, steel or have a 18k gold plating on them.

Sterling silver is the standard of quality for articles containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper (and/or other alloys).

Stainless steel contains at least 10% chromium and, depending on the grade of the stainless steel, it may include smaller percentages of nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium and other metals.

18K gold plated jewelry is made of sterling silver or other base metal covered with a thin gold layer that consists of 75% pure gold.

Some custom pieces are made from MDF board. These will be identified in the product description.
