Made of oxidized silver with careful detailing, these butterfly earrings will suit those looking for an understated piece of jewelry with subtle vintage charm.
Refined range of butterfly jewelry, we have gathered for you some practical information about this precious metal that is silver! Our range is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Soft metal by nature, silver is made stronger by this association! Retaining all its character while giving it an excellent hold, it’s no surprise that sterling silver is the most common silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its intense brilliance, silver has a number of other qualities: it is safe for the skin. It is also used for curative purposes for its purifying virtues. Unlike copper or iron, which can emit an unpleasant odor upon contact with the skin, silver also possesses the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, silver is naturally susceptible to oxidation, but you can relax! Thedark areas generated by this natural phenomenon are very easy to remove! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, you can simply brush it lightly with a lemon-soaked toothbrush! You can also let it soak for an afternoon in white vinegar! A simple rinse to and drying with a soft cloth will finish the job!
So, to prevent the darkening phenomenonof this precious metal, some of our jewelry has been rhodium-plated or platinum-plated. These rarer elements than gold help prevent oxidation while mimicking its luster. But here again, some people prefer jewelry without plating because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. Indeed, some people will choose lightly oxidized jewelry. When slightly oxidized, silver can be quite charming with its retro feel!
