925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made primarily of silver, consisting of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. The reason for this composition is that pure silver, also known as fine silver, is too soft for practical use in jewelry making. By combining it with other metals, particularly copper, sterling silver becomes more durable, suitable for crafting jewelry and various decorative items while retaining the desirable properties of silver. The "925" hallmark signifies the 92.5% purity of silver in the alloy. This standard is widely recognized and used in the jewelry industry, ensuring quality and authenticity in sterling silver products. We stamp this hallmark on each of our pieces as a certification of authenticity.
In jewelry, "diamond cut" refers to a specific technique used to shape the metal or enhance its surface to create facets that mimic the reflective properties of diamonds. However, in the context of 925 Sterling Silver Marquise Motif Diamond Cut Hoop Earrings, diamond cut might be a bit misleading because it usually refers to the technique used on precious metals to give them a sparkly, reflective appearance similar to the facets of a diamond. In this case, the description might imply that the surface of the sterling silver has been crafted or textured in a way that creates a similar sparkling effect to that of diamond facets, enhancing the visual appeal of the earrings. This technique adds depth and shimmer to the metal, enhancing its overall aesthetic.
Rhodium-plated sterling silver refers to a layer of rhodium, a rare and precious metal belonging to the platinum group, applied to the surface of sterling silver jewelry. This plating process involves electroplating rhodium onto the surface of the sterling silver to enhance its appearance and properties. The reasons for rhodium plating on sterling silver can vary:
1. Enhanced Appearance: Rhodium has a brilliant, white finish that gives jewelry a lustrous, reflective surface resembling white gold or platinum. It enhances the shine and brightness of the silver, providing a sleek and polished look.
2. Durability and Protection: Rhodium plating adds a protective layer that helps prevent tarnishing, scratches, and wear on the sterling silver. It creates a barrier that improves the jewelry's resistance to everyday elements and extends its lifespan.
3. Hypoallergenic Properties: Rhodium plating can also benefit individuals with allergies or sensitivities to metals by creating a barrier between the skin and the silver, reducing the risk of skin reactions.
However, over time, the rhodium plating may wear off due to regular use, revealing the sterling silver underneath. This can be restored by re-plating the jewelry to maintain its original appearance. Rhodium-plated sterling silver jewelry offers the beauty of sterling silver with the added benefits of enhanced durability, shine, and protection.
