About Aluminium

Aluminium

  • easy to cut and drill
  • easily scratched.
  • may be polished to a mirror finish
  • shows fingerprints and becomes tarnished in time if not protected
  • light-weight, with silver-like appearance
  • may be too light for items that need some weight, e.g. earrings and pendants
  • jewellers like this shining silvery metal due to its exceptional flexibility.
  • after stamping the aluminium does undergo certain processes to 'work harden' it, making it more hardwearing for use
  • very popular and affordable alternative to silver
  • hypo-allergenic
  • available in different gauges meaning that some of our shapes will be 'crisp packet thin' whereas others are very chunky dependent on the design and requirement.
