Why silverware blackens

Each owner of silver jewelry probably noticed that over time, the accessory becomes darker. If a raid does not appear immediately after the purchase, then this is a natural process. This happens even if the accessory is not worn too often, and even more so when worn actively. The material tends to oxidize over time. But sometimes plaque appears on silver jewelry too quickly, and the accessory does not just darken, but turns black. What makes silver black? The people have one answer to this question, and science has a different one. Let’s try to figure it out!

Silver turned black: signs and superstitions

There is a sign that says silver accessories are coated with a coating when a strong damage was sent to a person.

The main thing is for the bracelet to sit: we determine the size of the main “manual” jewelry

A bright, attractive, alluring bracelet has long turned from a powerful amulet (and this is how our ancestors perceived it) into a familiar and very important accessory. He is equally loved by both women and men, and without this decoration it is difficult to imagine a stylish image. A laconic chain or a dozen exaggerated items in a gypsy style, gold or jewelry, complemented by a clasp or inlaid with precious stones – in any case, the bracelet must not only be worn correctly.

First of all, you need to be able to determine the size of the bracelet on your hand. Perhaps this is even more important than choosing the right decoration design for you. You see, even the most beautiful product can lose all its attractiveness as soon as you try it on yourself. And all because our personality, features of appearance and style of clothing directly affect how the accessory will look at us. The size of the hand for the bracelet is a very important parameter when choosing this jewelry. The correct definition of the girth of the wrist will help to ensure that your favorite accessory becomes an integral complement to your image. Continue reading

For centuries: how stones are fixed in jewelry

In precious jewelry there are no trifles. Starting from the choice of metal, the method of manufacturing the product, its design, the choice of fastener – each stage of the process is most significant for obtaining the perfect result in the final. One of these critical phases is the insertion of a stone into a ring, pendant, bracelet or earring. Not only the appearance of the resulting jewelry depends on the skill of the jeweler, his skill and imagination, but also his durability and comfort in wearing.

Fixing jewelry stones: how it happens
They say that there are no comrades for the taste and color. It’s hard to disagree with this: someone likes a thin gold rim, and someone gives a massive ring in which one large and several small diamonds flaunts. But nevertheless, according to the observations of experts of the online jewelry store Gold.ua, it is jewelry that is inlaid with gems that are most popular. So that the stones reliably “sit” in their nests and at the same time shine with all their beauty, the so-called stone fixing is used in jewelry making – that is, the process by which the stones are fixed in the precious metal and do not fall out of it. There are quite a few varieties of this process. Three main parameters depend on the choice of a particular method: Continue reading
