Inspired by the beautiful South American butterfly Vanessa Braziliensis, this hand-painted butterfly pendant will add a unique touch of originality and character to your necklace.
Would you like to know more about our butterfly jewelry, so you can wear it better? Our jewelry is composed of 925 Sterling silver, an alloy born from the meeting of 92.5% silver with 7.5% other metals. A ductile metal in its pure state, silver will gain in hardness thanks to this association! Retaining its brilliance while providing excellent wear, it’s no wonder 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy among silver fans! In addition to its natural beauty, silver has several qualities: it is a metal that is safe for the skin. It is also used in medicine for its bactericidal properties. Unlike copper and iron, which can produce a strong odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
On the other hand, silver is naturally sensitive to air, but no worries! The dark deposits resulting from this natural reaction of silver are easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, you can simply clean it gently with a damp toothbrush sprinkled with baking soda! Another tip: soak it in white vinegar for 120 minutes. A simple run under water and drying with a soft cloth will finish the job!
Besides, in order to perfect the oxidation of this precious metal, 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 protect the silver while being very close to its brightness. But here again, some people prefer pure sterling silver jewelry because they prefer the more “gray” shine of silver. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When subtly darkened, silver can be quite charming with its elegant appearance!
