Want to know more about our butterfly jewelry, so you can wear it better? Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is a soft metal in its pure state, making it easier to work with and to wear! Retaining its typical shine while providing excellent wearability, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular alloy among silver fans! In addition to its beautiful shine, silver has a number of other benefits: it is a metal that is perfectly tolerated by our bodies. Surprisingly, it is used for medical purposes for its purifying properties. Unlike copper and iron which tend to give off a strong odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the property of not having an odor.
On the other hand, in the long run, silver tends to blacken when in contact with air, but no worries! Dark spots caused by oxidation can be easily removed! To maintain a silver butterfly jewelry, you can simply brush it gently with a toothbrush soaked in lemon! Another tip: soak it in white vinegar for a morning. Finally, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
So, in an effort toprevent the oxidative tendency of silver, some of our jewelry is coated with a layer of rhodium or platinum. These metals, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help to protect silver while mimicking its shine. Nevertheless, some people prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too intense. Indeed, oxidized silver jewelry is an aesthetic in its own right! When slightly aged, silver can be quite charming with its retro look!
