To find out which kind of silver your piece is made of, please visit its respective product page.
|Rhodium-plated, with a protective film coating
|Some 925 silver pieces have an extra layer of rhodium.
This gives off a darker silvery finish that is long-lasting. Once the rhodium and coating has worn out, you will be able to see the 925 silver base (slightly lighter coloured).
A silver polishing cloth may be used once the rhodium plating has worn off.
|Protective film coating
|Other 925 pieces are protected by a film coating.
For these pieces, there will be a slightly whitish silver finishing that is bright and luminous for a different aesthetic feel.
As compared to rhodium-plated silver, 925 silver lasts longer and can be polished for a brighter shine.
|Rhodium-plated eco-brass, with a protective film coating
Eco-brass is a lighter, stronger, eco-friendly variation of brass.
In an effort to reduce the amount of lead generated and released, eco-brass – alongside other lead-free variations of brass – was invented. Eco-brass is lead-free, posing no problems to humans and the environment alike.
To care for non-925 Silver items, use warm water to wash your jewellery and pat them dry with a soft cloth.
