Our line is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. A soft metal in its raw state, silver becomes more consistent with this combination! Retaining all its panache while providing a better consistency that can be worked, no wonder 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy among silver fans! In addition to its natural beauty, silver has several other qualities: it is a hypoallergenic metal. Surprisingly, it is used for curative purposes for its anti-microbial properties. Unlike copper and iron, which tend to give off a metallic odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the particularity of being odorless.
On the other hand, over the long term, silver ends up whitening and then darkening in contact with oxygen, but don’t panic! Thedark spots resulting from this natural reaction of silver can be removed without a problem! Here are some grandma’s secrets for maintaining your silver butterfly jewelry: you can simply clean it thoroughly with a toothbrush and lemon juice! Another tip:put it to soak in a glass of beer for 10 hours.Then just rinse it with clean water and rub it with a soft cloth.
As such, to perfect the oxidation of the silver, some of our jewelry is protected by a plating of platinum or rhodium. These elements, which are sometimes more expensive than gold, help protect the silver while enhancing its luster. But then again, some people will prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because finding the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When subtly aged, silver is far from being devoid of personality!
Oxidized or brand new, this metal will lend itself gracefully to a variety of styles!
