Solid Silver (AKA Fine Silver)

Our Solid Silver pieces are made from the purest form of Silver (99.9% Silver). This Silver is softer than Sterling Silver and will scratch and wear over time adding to the character of the piece. 

Here are a few tips to help you take special care when wearing your Solid Silver jewellery:

Remove your rings when you wash your hands, do the washing up and before showing, bathing or sleeping.

Avoid wearing in situations where it may get damaged easily such as whilst doing domestic or manual jobs or when using exercise or sporting equipment.

Prevent damage by avoiding wearing it alongside another ring which is made from a different (harder) material such as Stainless Steel.

When you’re not wearing your Solid Silver jewellery keep it in a safe place such as the box that it came in.

In general, the higher the silver content, the slower the tarnishing. Even Solid Silver, though, will eventually tarnish. Again, proper storage will help slow down the tarnishing process.

Always store your Solid Silver jewellery separately from jewellery made from other metals.

Avoid any kind of contact with bleach or cleaning products and never wear when swimming.

Prevent your jewellery from coming into contact with hair spray, deodorants, perfumes and make up.


Sterling Silver

Silver is a precious metal usually mixed with copper to enhance its durability. Sterling Silver consists of 92.5% Silver and 7.5% Copper.

Over time oxidisation will occur causing silver to become tarnished. Simply wearing your jewellery helps prevent, or at least slow down, the oxidation process keeping your jewellery looking new.

To minimise scratching, your Silver jewellery should be stored in the box that it came in. Remove your rings when you wash your hands, do the washing up and before showing, bathing or sleeping.

Avoid wearing in situations where it may get damaged easily such as whilst doing domestic or manual jobs or when using exercise or sporting equipment.

If your ring has a stone it is perfectly normal for it to become loose over time with general wear and tear, this can be rectified easily by going to your local jewellers where they can tighten it up for you.

If your ring is adjustable please take care when opening and closing it to fit. We would recommend that once you have it positioned to a suitable size that you refrain from further adjustments as repeated movement can cause a weakness in the silver which may result in breakage.


Stainless Steel

Stainless steel jewellery is made of a steel alloy that contains chromium which makes it very hard wearing. Stainless Steel is hypoallergenic.

Stainless steel jewellery doesn’t tarnish and doesn’t require special care, however it can scratch.

You should 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 separately from jewellery made of other metals. It is best if you keep your stainless steel items in the pouch that it came in.

Remove your rings when you wash your hands, do the washing up and before showing, bathing or sleeping.
