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:
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. The chain, clasp and findings are silver over brass. 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. The chain, clasp and findings are also solid brass and hand oxidized. Lead-free, nickel-free, and cadmium-free.
