Did you know? Our jewelry is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is soft in its raw state, but is made stronger when combined! Retaining its typical shine while providing excellent wear, it’s no wonder 925 sterling is the most popular alloy among silver fans! In addition to its superb brilliance, silver has several other qualities: it is a hypoallergenic metal. Even better, it is used for medical purposes for its anti-bacterial properties. Unlike copper or iron which can produce a strong odor in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, in the long run, silver tends to blacken in contact with oxygen, but you can keep your cool! The black marks associated with this natural reaction of silver are very easy to remove! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking great, you can simply clean it gently with a toothbrush and lemon juice! Another tip: soak it in white vinegar for a morning. Then simply rinse it with clean water and rub it with a soft cloth.
By the way, in order to prevent oxidation of this beautiful metal, some of our jewelry is coated with rhodium or platinum. These elements, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help prevent oxidation while mimicking its brilliance. But then again, some people will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. Indeed, some people will turn to lightly oxidized jewelry. When subtly aged, silver is far from being devoid of elegance!
Vintage or first-day style, this metal will lend itself brilliantly to a variety of looks!
