The commitment to quality is a fundamental pillar in every piece of famaraspirit. We look into each component of our designs and trace it’s origin as far back as possible. We are aware that we are working with materials that have been taken from Mother Earth and we recycle all our silver and packaging.

HALLMARKING

It is not possible to detect the precious metal content of an item by sight or by touch. Therefore, it is a legal requirement to have items consisting of silver, gold or other precious metals independently tested and then hallmarked before they can be described as such. Items must bear a hallmark at point of sale.

famaraspirit is a registered brand and all pieces are verified independently by an authorized Assay Office in Andalusia ensuring our precious metal jewellery is compliant with the Spanish hallmarking regulations.

Our hallmarking allows our customers to identify the precious metal make-up of a jewellery piece.

Nautilus Silver hoops

Pure silver 99.9%, also referred to as fine silver is too soft to use on it’s own for jewellery and is too pliable and can easily dent, bend and scratch. Sterling Silver is a combination of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloys to strengthen the metal. The alloy we use is copper and is 100% nickel-free.

Delicate Venus Leaf oxidised Silver Ring

When silver naturally tarnishes it acquires a beautiful blackish gray tint often found in antique pieces. An oxidised finish is an imitation of this process. By deliberately blackening the silver by applying a chemical process using silver oxide patina, the appearance of the metal is darkened and deepens the contrast of the design.

Gold Vermeil Spiral Hoops

Gold Vermeil pieces is Sterling Silver that has been plated with 22kt gold. Gold Vermeil is not solid gold and should be treated with care to preserve it’s quality.
