The Snake Chain Bracelet is a simple and elegant bracelet on which you can add the butterfly beads of your choice!
To get the most out of our butterfly jewelry, learn more about the silver in our collection! Our jewelry is composed of 925 Sterling Silver, an alloy made of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or zinc. A ductile metal in its raw state, silver will become harder with this combination! Retaining its panache while providing excellent hold, it’s no wonder 925 silver is the most popular silver alloy in jewelry! In addition to its natural beauty, silver has many virtues: it is one of the metals that are safe for the skin. It is also used in medicine for its purifying properties. Unlike copper or iron which tend to emit a strong odor when in contact with the skin, silver also has the specificity of being odorless.
However, over the long term, silver tends to oxidize naturally, but you can keep your cool! The blackish marksrelated to oxidation are very easily removed! Here are some grandmotherly tips to maintain your silver butterfly jewelry: you can simply brush it lightly with a toothbrush and lemon juice! You can also leave it to soak overnight in a glass of beer! A simple run under water and dry with a soft cloth will finish the job!
As such, to prevent oxidation of this superb metal, some of our jewelry has undergone surface finishing by electroplating. Most generally with Rhodium or Platinum. These elements are rarer than gold and prevent oxidation while enhancing its brilliance. Nevertheless, some people prefer jewelry without plating because they prefer the particular brilliance of silver. In fact, oxidized silver jewelry is a style all its own! When subtly aged, silver is far from being devoid of elegance!
Darkened silver or shimmering silver, silver lends itself to everything!
