Our Dive Flag Jewelry is made of Rhodium-plated bronze or brass, with chip inlay of simulated red coral and mother-of-pearl. Rhodium is a rare, silver to white metal that belongs to the Platinum group of metals. It is about 10 times more costly than gold, but because it is a "noble metal" and inert, it is scratch resistant. Rhodium will not tarnish and makes jewelry more durable. Chip inlay is far more durable and attractive than baked-on or painted-on enamel used by most other manufacturers. Use of simulated inlay in Dive Flag Jewelry protects our reefs!
Our shark tooth and other "animal" jewelry is made with materials shed naturally.
