Want to know more about our butterfly jewelry, so you can wear it better? Our collection is made of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. A ductile metal in its pure state, silver will gain in hardness with this combination! Retaining all of its personality while providing a better workable consistency, it’s no wonder sterling silver is the most popular silver alloy among silver fans! In addition to its superb brilliance, silver has multiple virtues: it is a hypoallergenic element. Even better, it is used for medical purposes for its anti-microbial properties. Unlike copper or iron, which tend to emit a metallic odor when in contact with the epidermis, silver also possesses the property of being odorless.
On the other hand, in the long run, silver ends up oxidizing in contact with the air, but this is far from sounding the end of your jewelry! Thedots related to this natural reaction of silver are easily removed! To keep your silver butterfly jewelry looking like new, simply brush it lightly with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also let it soak for the time of an afternoon in white vinegar!
As such, to perfect the oxidation of silver, some of our jewelry has been rhodium-plated or platinum-plated. These elements, rarer than gold, help to protect the silver while enhancing its shine. But here again, some people will prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the particular shine of silver. Indeed, some people will turn to slightly oxidized jewelry. When a tad darkened, silver is far from being devoid of personality!
In darkened mode or in ultra-shiny mode, it’s a matter of taste!
