These letter codes apply to Bracelets Only.

BA = Yellow Gold 18 KT
BB = Pink Gold 18 KT
BC = White Gold 18 KT
BG has been used twice,
BG = Red Gold 18 KT
DA = Two Tone Steel & 18 KT Light Yellow
DB = Steel & 18 KT “Full Bar”
DD = Steel & 14 KT
DE = Steel & 18 KT “Half Bar”
DG = Steel & Red Gold 18 KT
DI = Steel & Red Gold
DJ = Two Tone Steel & 18 KT Yellow

As you cam see Steel has more than one code, however the code letters "ST" is used most of the time for Stainless Steel.

I did not know what "PVD Gold" stood for and now thanks to Durkin a viewer of our site we are better informed. In Durkins own words, "PVD" stands for "Physical Vapor Deposition" and is a coating process in which atoms of metal are vaporised in a vacuum and then condense on an object. The coatings are much more wear resistant than electroplated metals and offer the same effect at a reduced cost.
Thanks again Durkin!,
