The beauty of copper oxidation is that its corrosion, creates a protective layer towards the innermost part. This patina has a composition that varies according to the atmospheric conditions in which it is generated.
We recommend storing them at a constant temperature above 10°C for best results.
925 silver is an alloy made predominantly from silver with the addition of copper. Much of the silver used to create precious objects and various jewels is called 925 silver. What I use is 925 silver, an excellent alloy to use to create my jewels.
Gold is a soft, heavy, ductile, flexible metal of yellow colour. So it needs to be bonded to other harder metals, otherwise it would be too fragile to wear. Pure gold is indicated at 24 karat, those used in jewelery are indicated at 18 kt and 9kt, because they bind together with silver and copper, to strengthen the final alloy.
KEEP YOUR PIECES PROTECTED FROM DIRT
Dust and simple skin grease cause dirt to stick to metal. Store your pieces in a bag or box protected from the outside and from dust. My packaging is perfect for storing them.
PROTECT YOUR PIECES FROM HUMIDITY
Moisture reacts on all metals, including gold and silver. Don’t get them wet, avoid taking them to the pool, gym or beach. Also avoid spraying them directly with perfume.
Like most metals, when in contact with air, perfumes and creams that contain alcohol oxidized. To clean it you can put 2 tablespoons of bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and add the juice of a lemon to make a smooth paste. Then, apply the paste to the silver: you can do this with a soft cloth or a toothbrush. Let the paste rest on the silver for 20-25 minutes. After this time, rinse the silver with warm water and dry immediately with a soft cloth.
