Dynamic and light, the butterfly here evokes freedom and joy! Earrings for curious minds who live their lives as a game of discovery.
For our high-end jewelry butterfly collection, we’ve put together some handy info for you about the precious metal silver! Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. A ductile metal in its pure state, silver is thus made stronger by this association! Keeping all its panache while providing a better consistency more likely to be worked, no wonder that 925 silver is the most appreciated silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its natural beauty, silver has several qualities: it is one of the hypoallergenic metals. More broadly, it is used for curative purposes for its antibacterial virtues. Unlike copper or iron, which tend to produce a strong odor upon contact with the skin, silver also has the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, over the long term, silver tends to oxidize upon contact with air, but no worries! Thedark spots produced byoxing can be removed without a problem! To care for a silver butterfly jewel, you can simply scrub it lightly with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! You can also let it soak for a morning in white vinegar! Finally, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
So, in order toparry the darkening phenomenonof this precious metal, some of our jewelry has been plated with rhodium or platinum. These very precious metals help prevent oxidation while enhancing its luster. But again, some people will prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. Indeed, some people will choose slightly oxidized jewelry. When slightly darkened, silver is far from being devoid of personality!
