Italian Silver Jewelry


Silver’s value as a precious metal is historical and like most antique metals has played an important role in human culture, both symbolically and decoratively. It is a soft and pliable metal, though it is slightly less malleable than gold. As well as it's characteristic beautiful, white, high-polished, metallic luster, the name itself has become a recognizable color both in the arts and in fashion palettes.


.925 Silver Jewelry Handcrafted In Italy


What is .925 Italian silver jewelry?


.925 silver, more commonly known as sterling silver, is an alloy composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% additional metals (often copper, nickel, or zinc). Genuine Italian sterling silver is a fantastic metal to wear every day as it has many benefits. It is striking in appearance, versatile, affordable, and extremely durable. Like gold, Italian silver is made by expert silversmith hands which means quality jewelry pieces to wear on all occasions.


What types of italian silver jewelry does Italeau specialize in?


Like Italeau’s stylish 18k gold jewelry collection, its silver jewelry includes a range of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets - from modern, pure .925 Italian silver link chains to dainty pieces decorated with elegant Swarovski crystals or charms - which will accessorize your look day and night and make exceptional gifts all year round.


While often overlooked - silver jewelry is just as elegant and fashionable as gold jewelry. Plus, when you accessorize with Italian silver jewelry, you take elegance to a whole new level.

Why is silver jewelry a wardrobe essential?


Silver is a very durable metal, which promotes functionality. It can also be mixed and matched with different pieces pretty seamlessly to create an outfit that is classic yet on trend. It's easy to take care of too. Unlike yellow gold, which may need to be polished and cleaned regularly, sterling silver may only need to be cleaned occasionally.
In this day and age of technology, where things are meant to be worn for a season or two and then disposed of, silver jewelry stands out as an investment. It can be worn daily to work or a formal function without looking "tacky" or over the top.
You can absolutely wear gold jewelry with your casual and loungewear pieces. However, there is something inherently more effortless about silver. Therefore it pairs perfectly with the more laidback looks that we all are wearing more and more of these days.
Our collection of silver jewelry is handmade in Italy with premium material transformed into stunning pieces. Take our classic Five Star Crystal Bracelet for example. Crafted with .925 sterling silver with rhodium plating for durability–this bracelet is a staple item that can be dressed up or down. Truly, silver jewelry pieces are classic and timeless regardless of your aesthetic.


What are the benefits of .925 silver jewelry?

How to care for & clean your .925 silver jewelry:


We add jewelry to our collection because we find a connection to those pieces. There is an emotional investment when selecting fine silver jewelry. We want to protect that investment and keep our pieces beautiful for longer. When considering options to care for and clean our favorite pieces of silver jewelry we need to remember a few things.


Caring for .925 silver jewelry.


You may notice a tarnish on your jewelry. Please know that the tarnish on your silver jewelry is very normal. Even the best silver jewelry tarnishes. There is no need to assume the problem is related to the quality of your silver jewelry. If anything, tarnish indicates that your jewelry really is silver!
With the proper care, you can keep your silver jewelry looking new and glimmering just like the day you received it. Here are some possible tips to help you care for your silver jewelry well into the future. Keep reading to learn more about how you can care for and prevent tarnish on your silver jewelry …
Wear your sterling silver jewelry. Seems easy enough! Simply wearing silver jewelry regularly can help keep tarnish at bay. When your piece rubs against your skin, clothing, etc, this contact can mechanically remove tarnish and grime. It won't prevent tarnish, but it can help.
Take your silver jewelry off. Consider taking off your silver jewelry when showering, swimming in a pool or the ocean, and especially when cleaning or doing household chores with harsh chemicals. You may also want to take off your jewelry before applying makeup or skincare products. Before putting your silver jewelry back on, you might also want to wash your hands.
Store your silver jewelry properly. A great method of care is to store your sterling silver jewelry in a container or jewelry pouch that is dry, relatively small, and doesn't allow free-flowing air to pass through it. You can also include some humidity-absorbing sachets in the jewelry container. This will help to slow down the tarnish further.
Create a cleaning routine for your silver jewelry. Having a cleaning and tarnish removal routine can really make a big difference. Having the routine will help keep tarnish to a minimum by targeting buildup and making your silver jewelry easier to clean and less prone to damage.
Silver tarnish is almost impossible to avoid. The good news is that you can make a big difference in how bad the tarnish gets and you can clean your silver to bring it back to its sparkling best.


Cleaning your .925 silver jewelry.


Okay, as we suggested before, tarnish is nearly impossible to avoid. So, cleaning your silver pieces definitely won't remove ALL tarnish from your jewelry. Starting your cleaning routine with a gentle, fragrance-free soap diluted in warm water is highly recommended. Cleaning your silver pieces will help to remove dust and grime, which will not only make your jewelry look better but also make it much easier to remove the tarnish lurking underneath the grime.
Silver is a soft metal, so you should take a bit more care with cleaning it. Never use harsh cleansers such as baking soda or toothpaste. They may remove some of the metal over time.
When cleaning, you can use a soft cleaning cloth to clean the silver in a specified silver cleaning solution, which can be available at your local drugstore. You can also use a soft-bristled brush if needed, but be careful not to scuff or scratch the surface, especially with shiny pieces. You may want to rinse your silver jewelry in soap and water at the end of your cleaning process to help remove any chemical residue left behind. Then dry your pieces quickly and thoroughly with another clean, soft cloth.
The process may seem tedious, but well worth your time to preserve your beautiful silver jewelry pieces.

What does sterling silver mean? What is considered .925 jewelry?


The hallmark .925 indicates that the silver jewelry is made with 92.5% silver, with additional materials such as copper accounting for the remaining 7.5%. The pure form of silver is so delicate that it must be combined with other, harder metals in order to create jewelry that will last.
You know you have a fine piece of silver when it has the ‘925’ stamp. Italeau’s silver jewelry collection is all made with .925 sterling silver to provide quality and durability.


What makes .925 sterling silver the perfect material for jewelry?


Apart from sterling silver being beautiful to look at, .925 sterling silver is the standard for jewelry. When the silver plating on copper or brass pieces wears off, the metal underneath becomes dull and may turn brown or gold. This isn’t ideal. For those of us who want our jewelry to last and have intrinsic value, sterling silver is a great option. Silver is, after all, a valuable metal so it can be a wise investment.
Because of its durability and beauty, .925 sterling silver has been used for centuries to craft everything from engagement rings to necklaces. Silver is a beautiful precious metal. It shines, it’s durable, and it won’t drive you crazy if you scratch it. It’s comfortable, versatile, and easy to style for any occasion.
For .925 sterling silver jewelry options, the Italeau handmade silver jewelry collection provides quality with beautiful craftsmanship.
