Check out our Courteous Love Butterfly Heart Ring. Made of antique silver with shapes inspired by the aesthetics of the Middle Ages, this butterfly ring with chivalrous charm pays subtle homage to the medieval love tradition. Inspired by Arabic poetry, courtly love (or fin ‘amor in Occitan) developed in Europe between the 12th and 13th centuries. An art of love that puts courtesy, respect, sincerity and the exaltation of love feelings at the center of the relationship. Having for ultimate goal the shared joy, the courtly love always nourished the medieval poets, the songs of the troubadours, as tinted the literature with famous lovers such as Tristan and Isolde or Heloise and Abelard. Thus with its butterfly, a symbol of freedom and beauty heading towards a heart, this romantic butterfly jewelry celebrates the freedom and poetry of giving free rein to one’s exalted love feelings.
For butterfly jewelry like the first day, learn more about the silver in our collection! Our jewelry is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Soft metal by nature, silver is thus made more solid thanks to this association! It is no wonder that sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among silver fans! In addition to its popular shine, silver has many other qualities: it is a hypoallergenic metal. Even better, it is used in medicine for its antibacterial qualities. Unlike copper and iron, which can produce a strong odor upon contact with the skin, silver also possesses the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, silver is naturally sensitive to oxygen, but that’s okay!!! The dark marks generated by this natural reaction of silver can be removed without a problem! Here are some grandmotherly tips to maintain your silver butterfly jewelry: you can simply scrub it thoroughly with a toothbrush soaked in lemon! Another tip: put it to soak in white vinegar for 2 hours A simple rinse to and drying with a soft cloth will finish the job!
Besides, in order toprevent the oxidative tendency of silver, some of our jewelry has undergone a surface finish by electroplating. Most generally with Rhodium or Platinum. These metals sometimes more expensive than gold allow to prevent oxidation while being very close to its brilliance. But here again, some people will prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the subtle shine of silver. Indeed, oxidized silver jewelry is a fashion statement in its own right! When subtly darkened, silver is far from being devoid of personality!
Aged style or style like the first day, it’s a matter of taste!
