Frequently asked questions
WHAT IS STERLING SILVER (925)?

Sterling Silver is an alloy consisting of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. Pure silver is very soft, so it is mixed with other metals to create a stronger material.

Pure silver is a non-reactive material, when someone has an allergy to sterling silver it is due to the copper content of the metal. The copper is also the reason sterling silver tends to tarnish – over time, copper reacts with oxygen and releases oxidation on the surface of the material, which is also known as patina. Storing your sterling silver in ziploc bags or other air tight containers will slow down the oxidation process and preserve the shininess of your metals.

Your sterling silver jewellery can be easily cleaned with a silver cleaner or silver cleaning cloth.

WHAT IS STAINLESS STEEL?

Stainless steel is a steel alloy (mixed metals ) that does NOT RUST or corrode and is composed primarily of iron with 18-20% chromium and 8-10% nickel.

Stainless steel is shiny but with a slightly darker hue than aluminum or silver that will darken over time. Because stainless steel contains nickel, those with nickel allergies usually cannot wear stainless steel jewellery.

Like any metal Stainless Steel can scratch and get scuffed with use.

HOW DO I CARE FOR STAINLESS STEEL PENDANTS?

Maintaining and Storing Stainless Steel Pendants

Stainless steel jewellery doesn’t tarnish or corrode, however it
can scratch.

Wear and store your pieces in a way that minimizes any contact with other items that can damage your stainless steel jewellery.

Store your stainless steel pieces seperately or in individual bags or pouches.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LASER MARKING AND LASER ENGRAVING?

LASER MARKING
A Laser beam heats the material, causing oxidation under the surface and turning the material black, leaving a permanent mark.


LASER ENGRAVING
Laser engraving is a process where the laser beam physically removes the surface of the material to expose a cavity that reveals an image.
