A GUIDE TO SILVER JEWELLERY

✧✧✧

STERLING SILVER

What is Sterling Silver?
Sterling silver is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% alloy such as Zinc. The reason we use sterling silver over pure silver for our jewellery is because pure silver is too soft. Sterling silver is significantly stronger and more durable making it perfect for jewellery. All of our sterling silver pieces are stamped with 925 and are Nickel and Copper free.

RHODIUM PLATING

What is Rhodium plating?
Rhodium itself is a precious metal from the platinum family. Rhodium plating is commonly used on white gold, and is used over the top of jewellery to create a bright reflective appearance, and create a surface that will resist tarnish.

Why we rhodium plate our sterling silver jewellery?
As it is part of the platinum family, rhodium plating our silver means your jewellery is more durable, more resistant to scratching, and more lustrous. It is also hypoallergenic and creates a bright metal surface that resists tarnishing.
