Silver Material - Dropdown
For most of our custom rings we combine two different kind of silver.
For the shank and bottom of the head we use 925 Sterling silver (mostly recycled) joined with the top of pure silver (99.9% fine silver). This has different reasons. 925 Silver has copper inside, which makes it more strong. This gives the adjustable rings with their open shank stability. The same strength applies for the bottom of the head, where the gemstone is glued on.
For the main walls of the head we choose pure silver, which gives the top a bright shine, it is less tarnishing, and because it is slightly softer it can be easier flowed around the gemstone by our makers.
