BERML's Collection of fashion jewelry encompasses a wide range of accessories that are crafted from diverse materials- the majority of which is stainless steel and other base metals like copper and brass, as well as leather or ceramic.
It frequently incorporates a variety of stones, including semi-precious gemstones, freshwater (cultured) pearls, simulated stones, and synthetic stones made from glass or crystal. This can include cubic zirconia (CZ), lab-grown diamonds, and other diamond simulants like moissanite.
Furthermore fashion jewelry includes pieces made from base metals that are plated with gold or silver (or any other color of the rainbow), adding an elegant touch to the designs.
ROCK, METAL & LEATHER
BERML's Collections frequently incorporate semi-precious gemstones and synthetic alternatives like CZ, lab-grown diamonds, and diamond simulants such as moissanite, which offer an affordable yet stylish option.
Moissanite, often labeled as a diamond alternative, is meticulously crafted to mimic the appearance of diamonds; however, its composition and visual characteristics diverge significantly from those of genuine diamonds. The resilience, radiance, and color of these two gemstones exhibit notable differences.
CZ (Cubic Zirconia)
CZ is diamond simulant that bears resemblance to diamonds but is composed of distinct materials.
While natural and lab-grown diamonds consist of carbon, cubic zirconia is crafted from zirconium dioxide (ZrO2). The term "cubic" in its name is derived from the stone's cubic crystalline structure.
Given that both diamonds and cubic zirconia share this cubic crystalline arrangement, cubic zirconia serves as an excellent imitation of diamonds.
Synthetic diamonds, also referred to as lab-grown diamonds, man-made diamonds, engineered diamonds, or cultured diamonds, are cultivated within tightly regulated laboratory settings using sophisticated technological methods that replicate the circumstances under which diamonds emerge naturally in the mantle, situated beneath the Earth's crust. These lab-grown diamonds are constructed from real carbon atoms organized in the distinct crystalline structure typical of diamonds.
Synthetic diamonds are priced comparably to Moissanite and cubic zirconia.
Famous for their soft, smooth sheen and a spectrum of delicate, natural pastel shades, BERML's Collection of Freshwater Pearl jewelry provides an excellent opportunity to explore exquisite and lively pearls without straining your budget.
Showcasing genuine shades of pink, lavender, and white, along with a radiant, metallic shine, these pearls vary from almost perfectly spherical to uniquely stylish baroque forms, ensuring that even the most discerning pearl enthusiasts can discover a piece of pearl jewelry that appeals to them!
Semi-precious gemstones encompass all gemstones that fall outside the category of the "Precious Four": Diamond, Ruby, Blue Sapphire, and Emerald. Gemstones falling outside these four are categorized as semi-precious.
The list of such gemstones is extensive, but some of the more recognizable ones include alexandrite, agate, amethyst, aquamarine, garnet, lapis lazuli, moonstone, opal, pearl, peridot, rose quartz, spinel, tanzanite, tourmaline, turquoise, and zircon.
Nowadays, select semi-precious gemstones can easily surpass precious stones in value. Notably, many natural pearls command substantial prices, often exceeding those of lower quality precious diamonds, rubies, emeralds, or sapphires. Spinels provide another illustration of this trend.
Furthermore, numerous semi-precious stones can exhibit greater rarity than some precious varieties.
Such examples include demantoid garnets, tsavorite garnets, and various other semi-precious gemstones that are challenging to find, mine, and obtain in quantities lower than their precious counterparts.
Embrace a world where conventions hold no sway, and BERML's Collection empowers you to unleash your true self with unapologetic style.
Choosing stainless steel as our primary metal, we offer you the sophistication of precious metals without breaking the bank, all while ensuring exceptional strength, durability, and a sleek appearance.
Every piece in our collection is meticulously hand-crafted from stainless steel (unless indicated where we may use titanium, tungsten carbide, sterling silver, copper or brass), guaranteeing a lead and chromium-free composition, along with hypoallergenic properties similar to that of precious metals. With its remarkable durability and easy maintenance, stainless steel proves to be the ideal material for crafting exquisite jewelry, available in a variety of stunning finishes, including brushed, engraved, matte, and glossy.
But it doesn't stop there—our metal colors are a captivating array of gold, silver, black, and rose gold, achieved through an IP (ion plating) process, also known as physical vapor deposition (PVD). This cutting-edge technique grants our jewelry unparalleled durability, surpassing traditional methods by five to eight times, all while using less material, ultimately
resulting in more accessible and affordable prices.
So, express yourself without restraint, knowing that each piece of your BERML jewelry captures the essence of individuality and elevates your confidence with unparalleled flair. With stainless steel as our canvas, we invite you to explore the diverse and mesmerizing colors that add a touch of magic to every moment.
BERML offers a range of leather products crafted from diverse types of leather, including Full-Grain and Genuine Leather.
Full-Grain Leather originates from the uppermost layer of animal skin, representing the finest and most premium leather available. It preserves the inherent texture and markings of the hide, eschewing any sanding or imperfection removal. These natural characteristics are seamlessly integrated into the design, endowing the leather with its unique appearance and robustness.
Genuine Leather, also referred to as natural leather, encompasses leather derived from authentic animal hide sources. It's a term commonly employed interchangeably with "leather." Nevertheless, not all genuine leather is equal. It can stem from various skin layers and undergo diverse surface treatments or even incorporate supplementary materials to enhance aesthetics and durability.
The most prominent distinction between full-grain and genuine leather lies in the skin layers utilized. Full-grain leather originates from the upper skin layer, which maintains structural integrity, whereas genuine leather can involve lower skin layers. Another differentiation lies in surface treatment—while full-grain leather remains unaltered to preserve its natural texture and authenticity, genuine leather often undergoes assorted surface treatments to augment appearance and longevity.
Our choice to avoid synthetic leather is driven by various considerations.
