Vidda is handmade in Spain, with a core metal alloy that is plated in 925 silver. This results in a very tough and non flexible material with a rustic and irregular look. This kind of metal is traditional in Spain with the exception of the pearls, silver and other high end quality materials such as Swarovski crystals and vegetable tanned leather are from the Mediterranean Spanish regions. Vidda is also handmade by artisans using natural and crafted products so pieces will not come out exactly the same. It is nickel and lead free.
