Check out our beautiful dreamy fairy silver butterfly earrings! “Why do we unlearn? Because we’re no longer cheerful and innocent enough” Peter Pan
Get to know our butterfly jewelry better, so you can wear it better! Follow our guide! Our range is made of 925 Sterling silver, an alloy resulting from the meeting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is a soft metal in its pure state and is thus made more consistent by this association! Retaining its panache while providing 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 natural beauty, silver reveals several virtues: it is safe for the skin. Even better, it is used in medicine for its antibacterial qualities. Unlike copper or iron, which can emit a metallic odor upon contact with the epidermis, silver also possesses the property of being odorless.
However, over the long term, silver will eventually blacken upon contact with oxygen, but that’s okay!!! The blackish depositsresulting from this natural reaction of silver are easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking great, simply brush it lightly with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also soak it for 120 minutes in white vinegar! Finally, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
So, in an effort toprevent oxidation of this beautiful metal, some of our jewelry is protected with a layer of platinum or rhodium. These very precious elements help prevent oxidation while mimicking its brilliance. But then again, some people will prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the more “gray” luster of silver. Indeed, oxidized silver jewelry is an aesthetic in its own right! When a tad oxidized, silver can be quite charming with its antique feel!
Vintage silver or brand new silver, take your pick!
