Refined range of butterfly jewelry, we have gathered for you some practical information about this precious metal that is silver! With its design inspired by the natural and soft shapes in vogue at the end of the 19th century, the elegant Vintage Blue Butterfly Necklace will appeal to those looking for a designer jewelry with a unique old-fashioned charm.
Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy composed of 92. 5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Silver is a ductile metal in its raw state and is thus made easier to work with thanks to this association! Retaining all of its personality while providing a more wearable consistency, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among jewelers! In addition to its superb luster, silver reveals multiple qualities: it is safe for the skin. Even better, it is used in medicine for its purifying properties. Unlike copper and iron, which tend to give off a metallic smell when in contact with the skin, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
On the other hand, in the long run, silver ends up blackening in contact with air, but no worries! Thedark areas related to this natural reaction of silver are very easily removed! To care for a silver butterfly jewelry piece, all you need to do is lightly clean it with a toothbrush and a little toothpaste! You can also soak it overnight in a glass of beer! Finally, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
As such, in an effort toprevent silver’s oxidative tendency, some of our jewelry is coated with a layer of rhodium or platinum. These beautiful metals, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help protect silver while mimicking its shine. Nevertheless, some people prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. Indeed, oxidized silver jewelry is a fashion statement in its own right! When subtly aged, silver can be quite charming with its “antique” feel!
Darkened style or shimmery style, to each their own with silver!
