Our modern yet timeless designs are at prices that won't break the bank.

What is Demi-fine Jewellery

Demi-fine is a term used by jewellery brands to describe accessible but luxurious jewellery that falls between cheap fashion jewellery and pricier luxury jewellery.

The secret lies in the balance of minerals that are used to make this semi-luxury jewellery. Using 18k gold plating over a stainless steel base gives added durability or Gold Vermeil which is gold layered over sterling silver gives you added premium. Demi fine jewellery uses purer metals to achieve attractive accessories without sacrificing quality or luxury.

Cheap gold plated high-street jewellery doesn’t last long due to the thickness of gold plating. The layer of gold used on demi-fine jewellery is much higher. The thickness is measured in microns. This determines how long the gold plating will last with proper care.

For example: Standard gold plated jewellery uses up to 0.5 microns of gold whereas Gold Vermeil uses 2.5 microns or more.
