Made ofPRECIOUS METALS
All Fantasia by DeSerio is made of precious metals, gold, silver and platinum. They are cast in the same manner as fine jewelry, and polished by our expert professional jewelry polishers. All 14k white gold and 18k white gold pieces are plated with a durable and bright rhodium layer while sterling silver-based jewelry is plated with palladium or 22kt yellow gold. For the look of fine, platinum jewelry, the palladium is additionally plated with rhodium over the top of a 22k white gold base. Our electroplate techniques add extra metal to the prongs, strengthening them, so that the loss of stones will not occur. All jewelry is then polished and white glove inspected to ensure the highest quality every time.
The skilled diamond setters who set our jewelry have many years of experience in setting diamonds and fine gem stones to achieve that "Masters Touch." Combined our jewelers have over 50 years of experience setting fine jewelry. Each stone is selected for size and balance then placed in a setting that is drilled precisely to seat the stone properly. The prongs are then shaped by hand to reveal as much of the stone's brilliance a possible. This is the way the finest diamonds are set and the only way Fantasia Jewelry is set.
