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 and is thus made easier to work with by this combination! Keeping all its shine while providing a better consistency that can be worked, no wonder 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its superb shine, silver has several qualities: it is one of the metals that is safe for the skin. More broadly, it is used for curative purposes for its antibacterial qualities. Unlike copper or iron, which tend to produce a metallic odor upon contact with the skin, silver also has the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, over the long term, silver tends to bleach and then darken upon contact with oxygen, but this is far from being the end of your jewelry! Thedark areas associated with this natural reaction of silver can be removed without a problem! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, simply brush it lightly with a toothbrush and a little toothpaste! You can also soak it for 120 minutes in white vinegar! A quick run under water and drying with a soft cloth will finish the job!
As such, to prevent oxidation of this precious metal, some of our jewelry is coated with a layer of rhodium or platinum. These very precious elements allow to protect the silver while being very close to its brightness. Nevertheless, some people prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they prefer the “gray” shine of silver. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When subtly darkened, silver can be quite charming with its antique look!
