To get the most out of our butterfly jewelry, learn more about the silver in our collection! Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Silver is ductile in its raw state and is thus made more consistent by this combination! Keeping its typical shine while providing excellent hold, no wonder 925 silver is the most common alloy among silver fans! In addition to its intense shine, silver has many qualities: it is one of the metals that are perfectly tolerated by our body. Even better, it is used in medicine for its anti-microbial properties. Unlike copper and iron, which can emit a strong odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the particularity of not having an odor.
On the other hand, over the long term, silver ends up oxidizing in contact with oxygen, but don’t panic! Thedark areas associated with oxidation are easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking great, simply brush it gently with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also let it soak for the time of a morning in white vinegar!To finish, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
As such, to prevent the phenomenon of darkeningof silver, some of our jewelry has undergone surface finishing by electroplating. Most generally with Rhodium or Platinum. These elements sometimes more expensive than gold allow to protect the silver while enhancing its shine. But here again, some people prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because they find the brilliance of platinum and rhodium too intense. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When a tad darkened, silver is far from being devoid of style!
Oxidized silver or ultra shiny silver, to each their own!
