This is the thinner version of the Vintage Butterfly Bracelet Large! Its antique-style silver and fine, delicate hand-finishing will delight fans of original bracelets with retro charm.
Did you know? Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is soft in its raw state and is thus made more consistent by this combination! Retaining all its shine while giving it an excellent hold, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among silver fans! In addition to its prized shine, silver has multiple benefits: it’s safe for the skin. But it does not stop there, it is used in medicine for its bactericidal qualities. Unlike copper and iron, which can emit a strong odor upon contact with the epidermis, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
However, over the long term, silver tends to whiten and then darken upon contact with the air, but no worries! The blackish stainsproduced byoxing are harmless! Here are some simple secrets to maintaining your silver butterfly jewelry: just scrub it lightly with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! You can also let it soak for 10 hours in a glass of beer! Then just rinse it with clean water and rub it with a soft cloth.
Besides, in order to prevent the oxidative tendency of this superb metal, some of our jewelry has undergone a surface finish by electroplating. Most generally with Rhodium or Platinum. These metals are rarer than gold and allow to protect the silver while imitating its brightness. Nevertheless, some people prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a fashion statement in its own right! When subtly darkened, silver can be quite charming with its retro feel!
Oxidized style or shimmery style, find your style!
