“LOVE” FORMULATED & ANTI-TARNISH SILVER JEWELLERY
WHAT IS SILVER?
Silver is a precious metal with a luminous white colour. Most of the time, it is combined with other metals to create more durable and stronger jewellery. This metal alloy is then called sterling silver.
At Heart to Heart Jewellery, we understand the limitations of sterling silver. Due to oxidisation, sterling silver is prone to tarnish. Hence, we have created our very own “LOVE” formulated anti-tarnish silver jewellery, giving our pieces more lasting stunning appearance.
WHAT IS “LOVE” FORMULATED SILVER?
“LOVE” silver is a high quality silver alloy. It is a combination of sterling silver and an anti-tarnish alloy that we have formulated. We have created about 50,000 pieces containing our special formulated silver alloy and have exported these to more than 20 countries.
IS IT REAL SILVER?
Yes, LOVE silver is real silver and it is considered as one of the best anti-oxidant silver. Unlike 925 silver, LOVE silver does not tarnish easily. Moreover, it is strong and durable, perfect for creating various jewellery pieces.
BENEFITS TO OUR CONSUMERS
Silver exudes timelessness and elegance. It is a beautiful precious metal that is more affordable than gold or platinum. Compared to costume jewellery which is plated with a thin layer of precious metals that chips away easily, our LOVE formulated silver lasts longer, maintaining its lustrous color.
We recommend setting our Hearts & Arrows Simulated Diamond in our LOVE silver to create a stunning and sophisticated look.
CAN “LOVE’ FORMULATED SILVER TARNISH?
The rate of the tarnishing process depends on the contact with water (including bathing, perspiration and air moisture) and chemicals (Sulphur pollution in the air, soaps, detergents and cosmetics).
CAN TARNISH BE CLEANED?
It is quite easy to clear tarnished silver. If the silver items are not set with any diamonds, gems or other materials, simply follow a DIY cleaning method using a bowl lined with tinfoil and filled with water, vinegar and salt.
If the silver jewellery pieces contain gems or diamonds, use a silver cleaning lotion or jewellery wipes to avoid damaging the stones. Wear gloves if you’re cleaning the silver rings with your hands.
CAN SILVER TARNISHING BE AVOIDED?
Though silver will eventually tarnish, one can slow down the process by storing the silver pieces correctly. Use an airtight box or zip lock bag for storage. You may also add a piece of chalk or silicone beads into the jewellery box to remove excess moisture.
Another measure that could help slow down the rate of tarnishing is removing silver jewellery pieces when in a shower, sauna, spa or pool.
LOVE silver is a precious metal that makes jewellery look dazzling and classy. Apart from durability, our LOVE formulated silver does not tarnish easily compared to sterling silver. It is a great alternative to gold and platinum for those who are looking for something more affordable.
