And boy do we LOVE Montana !! We use an acid-free etch to add the heart into raw brass . The Montana piece is then either adorned with little square beads linked together. or a simple chain. Adjustable necklace 16" to 18" (other sizes upon request) We offer this design in two finishes:
Matte Silver Finish:
After etching and finishing, the piece is electroplated with 500 microinches of sterling silver, a slight oxidation and a protective finish. Most silver plate is only 10 to 20 microinches 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. The beaded chain is silver plated copper and the regular chain is silver plated brass. 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. The clasp and findings have the same finish.
Antique Matte Brass Finish
After the piece hand finished, 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. The beaded chain is antique brass plated cooper. The findings are also brass with silver plated finish.
