Our range is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy consisting of 92. 5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. Silver is a soft metal in its raw state and is thus made stronger by this combination! Retaining all its character while providing excellent hold, it is not surprising that 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its much appreciated shine, silver has various virtues: it is an element perfectly tolerated by our body. Even better, it is used for medical purposes for its anti-microbial properties. Unlike copper and iron, which tend to give off a strong odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the property of not having an odor.
On the other hand, silver is naturally sensitive to air, but don’t panic! The dark deposits associated with this natural reaction of silver can be removed without a problem! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, you can simply brush it gently with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! Another technique: soak it in white vinegar for 120 minutes. Then simply rinse it with clean water and rub it with a soft cloth.
So, to prevent the darkeningphenomenon of this precious metal, some of our jewelry is protected by a plating of platinum or rhodium. These very precious metals help prevent oxidation while mimicking its brilliance. Even so, some will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they prefer the more “gray” luster of silver. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When subtly oxidized, silver is far from devoid of personality!
In darkened mode or in like-new mode, silver lends itself to anything!
