The main product for the Hicommune Silver service is the surface-treatment. The unique feel and quality of this treatment develops with use. Silver is a suitable material for the treatment, but at the same time, in its pure form it is too soft for jewellery. For this reason copper and other metals are added in the processing, to form an alloy.
The hardness of Hicommune jewellery items have the ‘SV925’ hardness scale, which is the most effective for jewellery. Each item is engraved with the ‘925’ mark.
K 18 GF
Pure gold has the characteristic of neither changing nor tarnishing. Metals such as silver and copper are added to increase hardness.
The Karat (K) is the unit of gold content, and this ranges to 24. We use 18K gold, which is the most suitable for jewellery in terms of hardness and color.
