Z for Accessorize: The Precious Metals Jewellery Guide

By now, you’ll know that our Z for Accessorize jewellery collection is packed with precious pieces – but what exactly is it that makes them so special? It’s all in the plating. Lending a high-gloss shine while adding durability, plating is the process of bonding a very thin layer of gold, rose gold or platinum over another metal. This gives it the look of solid gold or silver while eliminating the metal’s natural softness and weakness, resulting in jewellery box treasures that were made to be worn for years to come. Ready to find your new fashion favourites? Here are the precious metals to love now and always.


Here come the modern classics. Dreamt up in our London studio, these keepsake creations are plated in gold for understated glamour and set with semi-precious stones that’ll glisten under the sun and starlit skies. Expect to find delicate chain necklaces and hooped earrings with embellished geometric charms and, for a less structured look, stacking rings in varying designs provide an eclectic touch.
