Matte Silver Finish:
The etched piece is electroplated with 500 microinches (µin) of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is just 10 to 20 µin thick, making this at least 25 times thicker! This process is a nickel free process. The result is a gorgeous matte super durable silver finish. Take care of your piece just like any other silver jewelry you have. Keep it a cool dry airtight box, bag or the packaging it comes with. You can use a silver polishing cloth or sterling silver cleaner but all your really need is a clean soft cloth. Lead-free, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.
Antique Brass Finish
After the piece is etched and cleaned up, we darken it with a brown black oxidizer but then remove almost all of it, leaving just enough oxidation to bring out the details of the design. We finish up by giving it a light lacquer to keep it looking beautiful. Like the silver finish, just care for this piece as you would any other jewelry. You can use a polishing cloth or clean cloth or even give it a light buff with a nail file. Lead-free, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.
