Did you know? Our jewelry is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Soft metal in its raw state, silver is thus made more consistent by this association! Retaining all its panache while providing excellent hold, it is no wonder that 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its much-appreciated shine, silver has several other qualities: it is hypoallergenic. Surprisingly, it is used for curative purposes for its purifying properties. Unlike copper or iron, which tend to emit a metallic odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
On the other hand, silver is naturally sensitive to air, but that’s far from sounding the end of your jewelry! Thedark spotsproduced bythis natural phenomenon are very easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, just brush it carefully with a lemon-soaked toothbrush! Another tip:put it to soak in a bowl of beer for 10 hours.To finish, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
As such, in an effort toparry the oxidative tendency of silver, some of our jewelry is protected by a layer of platinum or rhodium. These elements, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help to protect the silver while still being very close to its luster. Even so, some people will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they find the luster of platinum and rhodium too intense. Indeed, some people will choose jewelry that is slightly oxidized. When subtly darkened, silver is far from being devoid of elegance!
Darkened style or ultra shiny style, to each their own!
