Perma-Crystal Coating
Perma-Crystal Coating is a unique process of bonding colored crystals onto metals in order to create a unique spectrum of colors. These colors range from marble white, cherry red, baby pink, orange, lemon yellow, green, blue, violet, jet black, and gold.
We also offer a transparent perma-crystal coating as a protective layer for any piece of jewelry. This is in addition to any other polishing or plating process carried out on your piece. It is especially recommended for the prevention of tarnishing and/or wear of precious metals.
