Key Materials

Materials & Craftsmanship

Silver

Silver is a white metallic element that is known for its excellent conductivity of heat and electricity. It is represented on the periodic table of elements by the symbol Ag, and it is a member of the noble metals, which are known for their excellent resistance to oxidation.

Silver is a relatively soft metal, with a hardness that is intermediate between gold and copper. It is more malleable and ductile than gold, which means that it can be easily shaped and molded into various forms. However, it is not as hard as copper, which means that it is more prone to scratches and other types of damage.

Because of its softness, silver is usually alloyed with another metal to harden it enough to maintain the desired shape and details when it is used in jewelry and other decorative objects. This helps to give it the necessary strength and durability for use in these types of applications.

Throughout history, silver has played a prominent role in the production of jewelry and objets d'art. It is prized for its beauty and versatility, and it is often used in a wide variety of different types of jewelry, including rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets. It is also used in decorative objects, such as candlesticks, vases, and other decorative items.

Ivory

Ivory is a hard, white material that is derived from the tusks and teeth of animals. It is primarily composed of dentine, which is a hard, bony tissue that makes up the majority of a tooth or tusk. Ivory is valued for its beauty and durability, and it has been used to create a variety of items, including decorative carvings, false teeth, fans, dominoes, and joint tubes.

Elephant ivory is the most well-known and widely used type of ivory, but it is also obtained from the tusks of other animals, such as mammoths, walruses, hippopotamuses, sperm whales, killer whales, narwhals, and wart hogs. Elk also have two ivory teeth that are believed to be the remnants of tusks from their ancestors.

The trade in ivory from threatened species, such as African and Asian elephants, is illegal in many countries. The word "ivory" ultimately comes from the ancient Egyptian word "รขb," meaning "elephant," through the Latin "ebor" or "ebur."

General Care Instructions:

Remove jewelry when showering or bathing, especially when at the beach, in the sea or in chlorinated water.
Avoid wearing jewelry while doing physical work such as housekeeping, gardening or exercise.
Storing your jewelry in a dry and cool place will help protect it from moisture, dirt and dust.
Keeping it away from harsh chemicals such as bleach, ammonia and chlorine will help to avoid discoloration and damage.
Cleaning your jewelry regularly with a soft cloth will help to keep it looking shiny and new.
Avoid exposing your jewelry to extreme temperatures, such as leaving it in direct sunlight or near a heater, as this can cause damage.
Handle your jewelry carefully and avoid dropping it, as this can cause the stones to loosen or the metals to scratch.
Finally, if possible, have your jewelry professionally checked and serviced. This will ensure that any potential problems are spotted and fixed before they become worse.
