.925 STERLING SILVER
Experience the luxury and quality of .925 silver jewelry. .925 silver is a higher quality of silver than other types of silver jewelry because it is made up of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The addition of copper makes the jewelry more durable and resistant to tarnishing. It also means it doesn’t contain other metals found in lower-end silver jewelry, such as nickel which causes skin irritation and skin discoloration. .925 silver is considered a hallmark of quality and only used in luxury jewelry.
Rhodium plating is highly beneficial for people with sensitive skin, as it is hypoallergenic and does not contain nickel, a common allergen found in low-quality jewelry that can cause serious skin reactions. Additionally, rhodium is non-toxic, making it safe for anyone.
The durability of rhodium-plated jewelry is unmatched. Unlike other metals found in lower quality jewelry, it does not tarnish or corrode, and thus does not leave dark green marks on the skin over time. It is also highly resistant to scratches, dents, and corrosion, ensuring that it maintains its shine and luster for an extended period. Rhodium plating enhances the durability and aesthetic of jewelry. The use of rhodium plating in jewelry is considered a characteristic of quality and luxury.
As a precious metal of the platinum group, rhodium is known for its silvery-white appearance and high reflectivity. The process of rhodium plating involves applying a thin layer (between .75-1.0 microns) of the metal via electroplating to the surface of jewelry items, typically made of silver or white gold. Not only does this plating provide a protective barrier, but it also significantly improves the visual appeal of the jewelry, giving it a bright and radiant white luster.
