Extensively hand-polished to a fine sheen and shiny finish. It is perfect for jewellery and precious products. Sterling Silver is a standard alloy for jewellery purposes and is safe to wear on your skin. Please use a polishing kit to maintain a glossy surface.
Solid Sterling Silver, made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper.
Lost-wax casting technique, where the original wax model is first printed using a 3D printer.
From there a mold is made around the wax, before it is melted and filled with solid silver, creating the product.
IS IT STERLING SILVER AND HALLMARKED?
Yes, we have our own byMazy maker’s mark which is registered and held at the London Assay Office. This guarantees the purity/fineness of the metal. For more information hallmarks, read our Hallmarks guide.
Silver tarnishes quite quickly when it comes into contact with oxygen or sulfur. Happily, the best measure to prevent this is wearing your silver jewellery often. The oils in your skin help prevent tarnish. (This varies depending on your own body chemistry.) To avoid tarnishing, periodically wash your silver jewellery with mild soap, not detergent, and water. Dry thoroughly before storing. You may also polish gently with a polishing cloth. We suggest the Sunshine Cloth
. The cloth is treated with jewellery cleaning chemicals but it is non scratching and works great on silver.
Some of your pieces may have patina or oxidation as a part of the design. Be extra careful when cleaning these pieces, as you may clean away this design aspect. For pieces with black accents in carved/recessed areas, a treated polishing cloth would be your best bet.
Avoid showering with your jewellery on. Water and beauty products can affect the finish of the piece. Put your jewellery on last, after applying lotions, perfume, make-up and other beauty products. To slow tarnish, store your silver jewellery in a cloth pouch or an air-tight plastic bag. When you aren’t wearing your piece, store your silver jewellery separately from other pieces to avoid scratching and tarnishing from other jewellery.
