  • WHAT CARE SHOULD I TAKE WHEN WEARING JEWELLERY?

    Polished surface parts are naturally sensitive to scratches, as are parts with stones. In case of damage due to their uniqueness, the parts are sometimes difficult to replace.
    Wear and tear is not a production error. Each jewel must be handled and worn following care in order to preserve its integrity over time.

    What care should I take when wearing jewellery?
    Do not wear while washing your hands, bathing, sleeping, or playing sports.
    Avoid wearing items by the pool or on the beach. Contact with sea water and sand can damage the jewellery.
    Keep jewellery away from perfumes, cosmetics, hair products, such as hairsprays and other chemicals.
    Avoid applying exaggerated efforts on the parts as well as doing heavy work where the part is subject to scratches by friction with other objects.
    Sweat and PH of the skin can also influence colour loss or darkening of the item.
    Store jewellery in a box or pouch, like the ones we offer. Avoid storing the pieces in a damp place.
    To keep jewellery clean, you can use a gentle, chemical-free, silver cleaning cloth to restore its lustre and remove minor stains. Chemicals should not be used in cleaning the jewellery.


  • DO SILVER JEWELS OXIDIZE?

    Silver jewellery changes colour over time, a phenomenon known as oxidation, which is the darkening of the jewel. This is only an external layer that accumulates on the jewel and does not affect its quality in any way, occurring even when the jewel is stored for some time without any use.
    All oxidation is superficial and is due to the reaction of each organism in contact with the jewel, such as, for example, air pollution or contact with the skin. In the latter case, and varying from person to person, there may be several sources for oxidation, including stress (it can cause the release of uric acid through the skin - perspiration), certain medications, contact with cosmetics, perfumes and even swimming pool or beach baths.
    An additional precaution is to store jewellery individually in plastic bags with silica gel, preventing direct contact with air and humidity. However, even in these conditions, oxidation will continue to occur, as it is a natural process of silver, but at a slower rate.
    Silver jewellery with the conventional colour of silver may or may not have rhodium plating, and if they do not, they will not be protected from oxidation like pieces that have gold plating or rose gold plating.
  • WHAT IS RHODIUM PLATING?

    Due to its resistance and shine, rhodium is widely used in the jewellery industry, in the finishing stage of silver and white gold jewellery.

    In the case of silver, plating is given to create a protective layer on the piece, giving shine and preventing its oxidation. However, it is important to note that rhodium plating is not eternal. Jewellery such as rings and wedding rings are more susceptible to wear than other pieces because they are worn more frequently. Rhodium plating begins to wear out with 1-2 years of use, but in jewellery worn infrequently, the signs may appear later.
    In general, rhodium plating protects the silver piece from oxidizing (turning dark), but everything will always depend on the use and care of each person.
