Silver (Ag) is considered a precious metal. Like pure gold, pure silver is too soft to be worn every day, so it’s usually alloyed with another metal to make it stronger. Sterling silver (silver 925) is the purest form of alloyed silver to be worn as jewelry, containing 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals.
Gold plated sterling silver is sterling silver with a very thin layer of gold applied with electroplating technique the certain thickness (we use 2-3 microns thickness). This layer is applied to enhance the prestige of the silver and to prevent the silver from tarnishing.
Titian uses waste cow bones that are later cleaned and carved manually by our skilled artisans. Cow bones have open pores that are easy to be stained by any liquid. If your jewelries have cow bones on them, do not bring them to shower or swim or other activity that can put any stain into your jewelries.
Mother of pearl also known as mother of pearl, is an organic–inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer; it is also the material of which pearls are composed. It is strong, resilient, and iridescent.
Mother of pearl that are used by Titian is also came from the pearl industry’s waste that later cleaned and manually carved. This material has less pores, so it is safe to take your jewelries to shower. However, to keep your jewelries in a good shape, please take them off before doing any extreme activity and keep them in a dry place.
The gold layer will wear off after certain usage and will show the solid silver underneath. But don’t worry, Titian puts another thin invisible layer to protect the gold layer.
Most of people are allergic to brass which is a mix of copper and zinc. If you use a plated brass, after the fold wears off, the brass will react to your skin. If your skin is sensitive, try to stick with S925 (sterling silver) or 14k and higher solid gold. All of Titian’s products are made of sterling silver, so they are safe for you.
The salt water or in our sweat will oxidize silver based jewelries and give them black stains, sometimes green. This goes the same way with rose-gold plated silver that contains small amount of copper. But don’t worry, they are easy to get rid of. Gently swipe your silver based jewelry with silver cloth and your jewelry will shine like it’s new!
You can use commercial jewelry cleaners, but make sure your jewelry is mounted perfectly and the material is suitable with the cleaners.
Weiman Jewelry Cleaner (contains ammonia) does a good job for precious metals such as gold, platinum, silver, but not for porous gems such as pearl and bones. But, the use of ultrasonic waves to clean your jewelry might loosen stones from their mountings.
One method that is safe for almost every type of jewelry (also jewelry that we do not sure what they were made of),the combo of luke warm water and soft brush. You can use hair dryer to make sure that the jewelry is completely dry before storing them.
