Saint-Yves Silver 925 jewellery rhodium coated. Rhodium is a rare metal from the platinum family. It prevents the tarnishing of silver and gives a beautiful grey colour to silver jewellery.
Saint-Yves Silver 925 jewellery rose-gold coated. Instead of rhodium, a rose-gold bath is applied, further, and in order to improve its resistance to normal wear, a layer of an invisible lacquer is deposited by electrolysis to complete the process. The rose-gold plate will gradually fade away and the jewellery will recover it’s initial silver tone.
Saint-Yves fine fashion jewellery is designed to last and little effort is needed to keep it in good condition. Each item receives a palladium bath – a precious metal - and a rhodium bath – a rare metal from the platinum family. Instead of rhodium that gives a beautiful silver colour, a gold bath can be applied to get a gold colour 3N18. To be noted: in order to avoid possible allergy, our fashion jewellery do not contain nickel.
If after some time your jewellery begins to look dirty, simply place it in warm soapy water and clean it gently with a soft toothbrush. Then, rinse it thoroughly under running water and let it dry. You can also use a hair dryer.
Never spray products like perfume and hairspray on or even near your jewellery and protect it from salt water, sand and swimming pools chlorine as all of them are likely to damage its plated finish and fine crystal stones. suggestions apply as well to silver 925.
Worth to note, even quality fashion jewellery such as Saint-Yves gradually wears especially when worn everyday. Further, skin acidity tends to shorten fashion jewellery’s durability.
