.925 Sterling Silver
We use Tiffany grade silver, which is .925 parts silver, and .75 parts copper. It lasts for years, and should be worn all day, everyday. Silver will tarnish and oxidize with lack of wear, so we suggest you put it on, and enjoy! It's safe to wear in the shower and at the gym. Be careful when swimming, because it is only safe to wear in certain chlorine compositions.
Our brass alloy is mainly copper, with 12% tin. It is the color of 14kt. yellow gold. Over time, the metal will oxidize and darken with a warm and rich patina, which will continue to get better with age. We recommend storing brass pieces safely in your pouch to retain maximum shine. Avoid moisture, chemicals, cosmetics, and anything abrasive that could ruin the texture of the metal.
All of our jewelry findings, such as chain, clasps, backings, and earrings posts, are either .925 Sterling Silver or Gold Filled, which is 5% genuine 14kt. gold on the outside, and brass on the inside. All of our hair accessory findings, are iron or steel. Our bobby pins, and french pins are plated in order to retain their functionality and consistent color. We do our best to avoid plating on 90% of our products. It's not great for the environment, and we are constantly working on better methods, even though we are using the safest and greenest plating available on the market.
