Want to know more about our butterfly jewelry? Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Soft metal by nature, silver will gain in hardness thanks to this association! Retaining its brilliance while providing excellent hold, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its much appreciated shine, silver has several virtues: it is a metal that is perfectly tolerated by our bodies. Even better, it is used for curative purposes for its purifying qualities. Unlike copper or iron, which can give off a metallic odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the specificity of not having an odor.
However, silver is naturally sensitive to oxidation, but don’t panic! The blackish depositsproduced byoxidation are very easily removed! To maintain a silver butterfly jewelry, you can simply clean it thoroughly with a wet toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! Another tip: put it to soak in white vinegar for 2 hours Then you will just have to rinse it with clear water and rub it with a soft cloth.
As such, to prevent the phenomenon of darkeningof this beautiful metal, some of our jewelry has been rhodium-plated or platinum-plated. These very precious metals help protect silver while mimicking its shine. But then again, some people will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because finding the shine of platinum and rhodium too intense. Indeed, oxidized silver jewelry is an aesthetic in its own right! When subtly aged, silver is far from being devoid of personality! Darkened style or sparkling style, to each their own!
