Perfectly complimenting the Fleur pendant the Argentium sterling silver drops on these earrings measure 3cm x .75cm and feature two domed copper flowers rivited to the base. These are coated in a protective laquer so the metals will stay as they are.
These earrings are covered with a protective layer of laquer to maintain the colour of the metals as they are. It should not be polished or put into silver cleaning solution or this layer will be removed. A light buffing with a non abrasive cloth should be all that is required.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver and is very resistant to tarnish. Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 92.5% copper which is stronger than fine silver but tarnishes easily. Argentium sterling silver has some of it's copper content replaced with Germanium making it considerably more tarnish resistant than traditional sterling silver and just as strong.
