Q. What is the difference in the metals used in your jewelry?
A. Sterling Silver jewelry is an alloy that contains a mixture of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% of another metal, usually Copper. In order to be called Sterling Silver, the metal must possess at least 92.5% pure Silver, but the other components can vary. When mixed with copper, Sterling Silver will tarnish and may fire scale. Regardless, Sterling is considered a standard among Silver grades and provides strength to ensure that pieces like silver bracelets, rings and necklaces can withstand regular use.
Rhodium is a rare Silver-white metal of the Platinum family. It is particularly hard and is the most expensive precious metal.
Titanium is a natural element which has a Silver-white color. Titanium is the hardest natural metal in the world. It's three times the strength of steel and much stronger than gold, silver and platinum but yet is very light weight. Pure titanium is also 100% hypoallergenic which means that it if safe for anyone to wear.
Copper is a reddish gold metal that patinas to a warm brown but can also take on a green patina with oxidation. The oldest known metal, it was associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her Roman counterpart, Venus. In addition, Copper jewelry is often considered to have healing properties.
Rose Gold is an alloy that combines gold with copper to create a golden metal with a reddish hue. While it normally uses a gold to copper ratio of 3:1, rose gold can be found with varying percentages of each. Based on the addition of copper, the intensity of rose gold will be lighter or darker and will patina over time.
Zinc Alloy A widely used alloy which contains zinc is brass, in which copper is alloyed with anywhere from 3% to 45% zinc, depending upon the type of brass. Brass is generally more ductile and stronger than copper and has superior corrosion resistance.
Q. Can I wear my item while washing my hands?
A. You may wear the item while coming in contact with water, but we do not suggest it regularly. Soaps and lotions can cause build up on the stones reducing brilliance. Also, common household chemicals such as anti-bacterial soap can cause the finish to be worn away and will damage the opals.
Q. Will these rings turn my finger green?
A. No, in almost all cases, these rings will not turn your finger green. However, if a person has a naturally high acidity level to their skin, it is possible for their finger to “turn green” from silver or gold jewelry, especially when the weather is warm and humid. This “green finger effect” may also be an allergic reaction to alloy elements in sterling silver or gold. In some cases, the alloys used to make jewelry more durable, may react with your body chemistry, causing a harmless green or black discoloration on the skin. The rhodium plating that can be found on many of our pieces serves not only to make the jewelry look beautiful but also acts as a defensive layer, preventing this reaction from happening. Another reason for skin discoloration may be the use of lotions, soaps or chemicals that come in contact with your skin on an everyday basis (i.e.: antibacterial soap and household cleaning supplies). A good common rule to follow with jewelry is: Last thing to put on before you leave and the first thing to take off when you get home.
