IK has looking since its foundation to innovate in the use of alternative materials for our collections, however the basis for building his palette of materials are:
Stainless Steel - Color gray with light gray shadow. Strong, clean and radiant. With the possibility of presenting it matt or polished. The steel used in IK is top quality, surgical.
Titanium - Color gray with dark gray shadow. Much lighter than stainless steel and flashing darker. Comfortable and lightweight and low maintenance. Same properties of surgical steel.
Silver - Color white, malleable. Requires constant maintenance to prevent rust, for that Ik explores the use of silver in its various rust possibilities.
Gold-Color yellow, white and pink. In Ik we use only 18 gold and 24 carat because it complies with the aesthetics of the brand pieces. We usually use it in mate, but the polish is also a possibility.
Platinum - Color extremely white. Very soft and very heavy at the same time. For delicious tastes, with a bright white color.
Corian - Color 140 variables and endless possibilities. Corian is a resin developed by Dupont with natural stones. Easy to clean, non porous, hygienic, with invisible seams. We are the first and only Mexican brand in hand-making jewelry with this material, combined with gold, titanium, silver, precious stones ends up becoming a prime material for the fine work.The corian we use is 100% recycled, so our colors are always variables.
Precious stones - Ik develops a number of pieces with precious stones. All of them are natural and brought from different parts of the world. IK is constantly in search of different sizes, colors and textures that enhance the cleanliness of its parts.
Diamonds - Ik uses for our pieces diamonds with unique characteristics according with our own quality standards. Minimum color H, minimum quality VS. All our diamonds are certified.
