For butterfly jewelry like the first day, learn more about the silver in our collection. Our line is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is a ductile metal in its raw state and is thus made easier to work with thanks to this combination! Retaining all of its character while giving it a better consistency that is more workable, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its superb brilliance, silver reveals multiple virtues: it is one of the hypoallergenic metals. Surprisingly, it is used for curative purposes for its purifying virtues. Unlike copper or iron, which tend to give off a metallic odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
However, silver is naturally sensitive to oxidation, but that’s nothing!!! The blackish marks generated by this natural reaction of silver are very easy to remove! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking great, you can simply clean it lightly with a toothbrush and a little toothpaste! You can also leave it to soak overnight in a bowl of beer!
Besides, to prevent the oxidative tendency of this subtle metal, some of our jewelry is protected by a layer of platinum or rhodium. These elements, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help prevent oxidation while mimicking its brilliance. But then again, some people will prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the subtle shine of silver. Indeed, some people will choose lightly oxidized jewelry. When subtly oxidized, silver can be quite charming with its vintage look!
In vintage or sparkling fashion, this metal will lend itself to a variety of looks with ease!
