For consistently gorgeous butterfly jewelry, learn more about the silver in our collection! Our line is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals. Silver is a soft metal in its pure state and will gain in consistency when melted with another metal! Retaining its panache while providing a better consistency that is more workable, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its superb luster, silver has a number of virtues: it is a metal that is safe for the skin. Even better, it is used for medical purposes for its bactericidal properties. Unlike copper or iron, which can emit an unpleasant odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also has the specificity of not having an odor.
However, over the long term, silver tends to blacken in contact with oxygen, but this is far from sounding the end of your jewelry! Thedark spotsresulting from this natural phenomenon are very easily removed! To maintain a silver butterfly jewelry, simply brush it gently with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! Another tip: soak it in a glass of beer overnight. Finally, run it under water and dry it with a cloth.
By the way, in order toparfairethe darkening phenomenonof silver, some of our jewelry is protected by a layer of platinum or rhodium. These very precious elements help prevent oxidation while being very close to its brilliance. Despite this, some people will prefer pure sterling silver jewelry as they find the luster of platinum and rhodium too intense. Indeed, some people will choose lightly oxidized jewelry. When slightly darkened, silver is far from being devoid of elegance!
In vintage mode or in ultra shiny mode, it’s a matter of taste!
