Annaleece by DeVries
Discover the beauty and brilliance of Annaleece high quality fashion jewelry. Created exclusively with Swarovski® crystals and fine jewelry components, Annaleece offers
affordable elegance and style for today’s woman.
Originally developed in Austria, the most integral aspect of our high-quality fashion jewelry collection is the use of Swarovski® crystal. Swarovski® crystal is essentially glass containing 32% lead content. The addition of lead to glass creates a strong material able to be facet-cut while embracing a deep spectrum of color. Swarovski® is the industry leader of sharp-cut crystal production, giving the crystal additional brilliance and a diamond-like sparkle.
Every item is cast of pewter, a light and wearable base metal. Components are made of brass for strength. All cast products are hand-polished prior to plating to ensure surfaces are free from defects. Holes are then hand-drilled corresponding with the crystal size to ensure a perfect fit. All items are then electro flash plated with various degrees of gold and/or rhodium (a member of the platinum family), and are 100% nickel free. This process is fully automated to maintain a standard finish. Rhodium is utilized rather than sterling silver as it is a stronger metal and will not tarnish.
The final process in the creation of Annaleece jewelry is the most labor-intensive and requires skilled patience as each Swarovski® crystal is set by hand. Finally, all products receive a final quality inspection at the manufacturer and again at the distribution point to ensure our customer the best possible product.
Annaleece jewelry is nickel-free and hypo-allergenic.
