With its deep blue and hand-painted butterflies, these butterfly earrings feature unique charm for an assumed original look!
Want to know more about our silver butterfly jewelry? Follow our guide! Our jewelry is composed of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Soft by nature, silver is made stronger by this combination! Keeping all its panache while providing an excellent hold, no wonder that 925 silver is the most common silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its much appreciated shine, silver has several other qualities: it is a metal that is safe for the skin. Even better, it is used in medicine for its cleansing properties. Unlike copper and iron, which can give off a strong odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the distinction of being odorless.
However, silver is naturally sensitive to oxygen, but you can keep your cool! Thedark areas produced byoxidation are very easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, simply clean it lightly with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also let it soak for 10 hours in a bowl of beer! A simple run under water and dry with a soft cloth will finish the job!
As such, in order to prevent silver oxidation, some of our jewelry is coated with rhodium or platinum. These metals, sometimes more expensive than gold, allow to prevent oxidation while being very close to its brilliance. But here again, some people prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the particular shine of silver. Indeed, some people will choose slightly oxidized jewelry. When subtly darkened, silver is far from being devoid of style!
Darkened silver or shimmering silver, it’s a matter of taste!
