SILVER

We only work with 925 stamped sterling silver and where possible, we use recycled silver. 925 Silver is an alloy metal consisting of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper. For extra shine and durability, we plate all of our silver jewellery in rhodium. 

How to care for silver jewellery:

- Sterling silver naturally oxidises over time when exposed to the elements. We advise removing your silver jewellery before exercising or coming into contact with water.
- Wear it! Your skin’s oils are a natural buffer for silver and help to reduce the oxidation process.
- Avoid contact with perfume, creams, skincare products or harsh chemicals.
- Gently clean tarnished silver with a jewellery polishing cloth. When not wearing your jewels, store them in a safe, clean and dry location.
