What Is Origami Owl Jewellery Made of?

Origami Owl lovingly created each piece to meet the highest quality standards. We use only nickel and lead free materials in all our Charms, Chains, and Living Lockets.


Our enamel Charms are made of zinc alloy metal plated in rhodium, and are nickel and lead free. Each piece is hand painted by highly skilled artisans. When considering how small each item is, typically no larger than 12mm and averaging around 8mm, that’s pretty impressive!


All of our Living Lockets are crafted using high quality metals to ensure durability and style. Our 18k Gold and 18k Rose Gold lockets are plated using an advanced technology known as the ION Plating (IP) Process, which is the same process used by high-end designer watch makers. All Lockets are solid 316 grade Stainless Steel, a metal similar in appearance to Silver with the quality of being a harder metal, hypoallergenic, and do not tarnish through extended wear. Sparkling Swarovski Crystals are meticulously embedded into the locket’s border to create a high quality flush setting. Each Locket is an excellent choice to add to any jewellery collection.

Our Dangles are created specifically for Origami Owl. Each one is designed by our skilled creative team and made using the highest quality Glass Crystals, plated Synthetic Pearls, and Silver/Gold plated nickel free metals.


Our 925 Sterling Silver and 18k Rose Gold chains are plated using the Electro Plating Process which is perfect for creating chains that have precise coloring, beautiful finishes and high-end quality. Our 18k Gold chains are plated using the ION Plating Process over a pure copper base. IP is one of the most advanced surface finishing processes in the jewellery trade. When compared to other methods, IP provides durability and a greater wear resistant finish. The chains for our Tagged™ collection are also plated using the IP Process. They have a pure copper base and are rhodium plated. Rhodium metal is a branch of platinum and is known to be more resistant to tarnishing and dullness. It is also hypoallergenic and nickel free. All of our chains are plated multiple times, far exceeding the industry standards, to ensure that each piece will better stand the test of time. This stays true to our mission of offering jewellery that’s affordable, durable, and uniquely you!


Our clasps are made with a simple tab to allow for easy opening and closing of your Origami Owl chain. Clasps are based in stainless steel and finely coated in 925 Sterling Silver, 18k Gold or 18k Rose Gold to match the chain, with small raised detailing on the edges. Our clasps meet our high quality standard and extensive testing, however they are still delicate, small pieces and need to be handled with loving care.


Each Plate is made by hand. They are polished and inspected personally by our quality control facility making sure that they exceed industry standards.
