Why 925 Silver?

Silversmithing is an ancient art that, like crafting gold, dates back to the Egyptian empires. Throughout history, silver has been valued for its luster and utility, and was particularly prized by native people in Mexico, Peru, and the American West. 

Like gold, silver is so soft it often needs to be alloyed, usually with copper. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper.

Materials used on these rings are able to retain colour over time, even after countless uses. That, in our opinion, makes a piece of jewellery collectable, and worth investing in.
