Will I be charged taxes?

It depends. Orders are tax-free within the EU but apply on orders to Switzerland (order value above 57 EUR/ 49 GBP), the US (order value above 1000 USD/ 772 GBP) and Canada (As our jewellery is made in the EU, orders are duty free. Depending on which state you're living in, you have to pay a local import tax, directly invoiced by the Canadian Post. This means roughly 5% and it might include a handling fee by Canadian Post). For the mentioned exceptions, your local post carrier will charge you the import tax.

Why do I need to follow care tips for high quality jewelry?

Gold and Silver are organic materials. If the plating rubs off after years of wear or a scratch breaks your heart for perfection – remember, it's natural. Take care of what you love and increase the lifetime of your fine jewelry with our re-plating and repair service. Reach out to our care team: care@stilnest.com

Materials

925 Silver

All our 925 Silver jewelry is rhodium-plated to make it more durable. The extra layer of rhodium gives our jewelry its special silver-white shine. Rhodium is considered the rarest and most valuable precious metal in the world – well above Gold or Silver.

Gold Vermeil

Gold Vermeil pieces are 925 Silver, plated with Gold, and meet fine quality standards. Vermeil jewelry requires at least 10-karat gold with a thickness of 1.5 microns. We use recycled 24-karat, the purest Gold available, with a thickness of 2.5-5 microns, because we want to make it last. 

14k Gold

Óur goldsmiths use only recycled 14-karat Gold for our jewelry. The higher the number of karats, the purer the Gold. But purer is not always better. 24-karat Gold is exceptionally soft, while our 14-karat Gold is still very valuable and a lot more durable. 

All our pieces are all nickel-free and allergy friendly. 

Production

Fine jewelry

As you may know, instead of manufacturing large batches, every jewelry item is made-to-order in South Germany, making sure no resources or precious metals are being used without a clear purpose.

Firstly, every single jewelry piece gets casted (meaning liquid sterling silver is poured into a mould!) and after that personally hand-finished by our goldsmiths. The last step is called galvanization: At this stage, your jewelry gets purified in silver or gold (we use recycled gold, melted in Belgium), gloss improved and its durability strengthened, so it is flawless for years to come.

In total, production takes 10-12 business days from beginning to end. As soon as your piece is on its way to you, you'll receive a shipping confirmation with a tracking link. Shipment can take from one to three weeks*.


*Average shipping times are: Germany 1-2 days, Austria  3-4 days, UK/ US/ Europe/ Switzerland 1 week and Australia/ Asia/ Canada/ South America 2-3 weeks.
