Over the last few years, the popularity of demi-fine jewellery has continued to increase, with more and more people are searching for eye-catching accessories that don’t break the bank. If you are reading this thinking ‘what is demi-fine jewellery?’, look no further!
What Is Demi-Fine Jewellery?
Demi-fine jewellery is a term used to describe attainable yet high-quality pieces that bridge the gap between high-end and high-street jewellery. They are created by using a solid base of sterling silver or bronze and adding a thick layer of 18k gold/rose-gold plating so you can obtain an affordable piece, without compromising on quality.
These pieces typically have a much longer life than costume jewellery, which tends to turn your fingers & neck green when worn. This is due to the significantly stronger materials used in demi-fine jewellery as well as the high-quality manufacturing process. A lot of demi-fine necklaces & bracelets also feature semi-precious gemstones & birthstones, adding even more detail and interest to these affordable pieces - the perfect way to add a little luxury to your jewellery box, without having to dig too deep into your pockets.
What is it made from?
At Merci Maman, our demi-fine jewellery is made from 18ct gold plating/rose-gold plating on brass (except for our Fine Gold collection, perfect for those extra special moments for which you are happy to invest a little more). The use of these high-quality materials means that demi-fine jewellery is superior to costume jewellery but is without the premium price tag of fine jewellery.
Can I wear demi-fine jewellery every day?
Demi-fine jewellery is designed to be worn every day. However, we recommend removing your pieces before contact with water or applying lotions or perfumes. Check out our helpful jewellery care guide or read our top tips on caring for your demi-fine jewellery to discover more.
How to style it
How you style the jewellery is entirely up to you! The versatility of demi-fine jewellery allows you to easily elevate your everyday casual outfits or add a pop of sparkle to your evening attire with the exact same pieces. For a minimalist look, opt for dainty and delicate pieces or add chunkier, detailed pieces to make a bolder statement. Choose to wear your jewellery alone or stack them for a more interesting aesthetic
