Did you know? Our line is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. A soft metal by nature, silver is thus made easier to work with thanks to this combination! Keeping all its panache while giving it a better consistency more likely to be worn, no wonder that 925 silver is the most appreciated silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its natural beauty, silver has various virtues: it is one of the metals that is perfectly tolerated by our body. Even better, it is used for curative purposes for its bactericidal qualities. Unlike copper and iron, which can produce a strong odor upon contact with the epidermis, silver also possesses the property of being odorless.
However, silver is naturally sensitive to oxygen, but you can keep your cool! Thedark spotsresulting from oxidation are easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, you can simply clean it gently with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also let it soak overnight in a bowl of beer!Then simply rinse it with clean water and rub it with a soft cloth.
As such, to perfect the oxidation of silver, some of our jewelry is protected by a plating of platinum or rhodium. These rarer metals than gold help prevent oxidation while mimicking its brilliance. But then again, some people will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they prefer the more “gray” luster of silver. Indeed, some people will choose jewelry that is slightly oxidized. When slightly aged, silver can be quite charming with its elegant look!
Darkened silver or ultra shiny silver, to each their own!
