This graceful, yet bold necklace features a pearlescent satin finish which is achieved by etching small criss-cross lines onto the surface of the silver or gold. This gives the piece a soft, rich feel. Michou’s satin finish was created to resemble mother of pearl. The silver is swirled by hand witha fine steel brush in order to create concentric patterns.
Gold Vermeil is applied in an electroplating process. Microns of 22kt gold are deposited onto a sterling silver surface. the process is intricate in that all details that are not gold have to be painted with a masking solution in order to protect the silver from the gold being deposited on it’s surface. Vermeil is the official industry designation for heavy gold electroplating over a base of sterling silver material. A minimum thickness of 2 microns of gold must be deposited before it can be a true vermeil. Michou used 22kt gold to a thickness of 3 microns.http://michoujewelry.com/
