Inspired by the Art Deco era, this series of vintage butterfly rings in carefully oxidized silver will appeal with a retro look that showcases all the fine contrasts in silver.
Did you know? Our jewelry 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 easier to work with by this association! Keeping its typical reflections while providing a better consistency and more wearability, it’s not surprising that 925 silver is the most common silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its superb brilliance, silver reveals multiple qualities: it is among the hypoallergenic metals. It is also used for medical purposes for its purifying properties. Unlike copper and iron, which tend to emit a metallic odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the particularity of not having an odor.
However, silver is naturally sensitive to air, but not die to do so! Theblack dots produced bythis natural reaction of silver will come off without a hitch! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, you can simply brush it gently with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! You can also let it soak for the time of a morning in white vinegar!Then you will just have to rinse it with clear water and rub it with a soft cloth.
Besides, in order to perfect the phenomenon of darkeningof this precious metal, some of our jewelry are covered with a layer of rhodium or platinum. These very precious metals help to protect the silver while being very close to its brilliance. But here again, some people prefer pure 925 silver jewelry because they find the shine of platinum and rhodium too white. Indeed, some people will turn to slightly oxidized jewelry. When slightly aged, silver is far from being without style!
Darkened silver or sparkling silver, silver lends itself to anything!
