Our Materials

My Bijoux Toronto is passionate about providing environmentally friendly and hypoallergenic jewelry that lasts for years, without making any compromises to the quality or durability. 

What differentiates our jewelry from everyday retail stores? Our materials and how our jewelry is produced. All our jewelry is lead, nickel, and cadmium free. Also, we work with ethical manufacturers to produce our jewelry, which is made with preeminent craftmanship and utmost care; visible in the quality of our pieces.

Let's learn more about our materials:

Our jewelry pieces are real 14K or 18K gold plated/filled generously on pure 925 sterling silver as the base of our products. A process called Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) is used and is further coated with tarnish resistant treatment, making it appropriate for daily wear as its wear life has been elongated from tarnishing.

However, it's important to note that without proper jewelry care, the jewelry pieces will tarnish sooner. For tips on how to take care of your jewelry, view our jewelry care guide.

We use 925 Sterling Silver, which is 92.5% pure silver mixed with 7.5% Copper as our base of our jewelry. 925 Sterling Silver is hypoallergenic and very durable, making it a great long lasting metal. 
Zircon and Cubic Zirconia are two different types of diamonds, with different compositions. However, both are sturdy and equally beautiful.
    PU Leather 100% Polyurethane Leather, also known is faux leather, is a durable and sustainable alternative to real leather. It is made from thermoplastic polymer and considered vegan.
