The natural beauty of 925 sterling silver jewelry

De natuurlijke schoonheid van 925 sterling zilveren sieraden

In the world of jewelry, sterling silver shines as a timeless classic. But what makes this precious metal so special? Let's delve deeper into the enchanting story behind sterling silver, where magic and natural beauty meet.

Our sterling silver 925 base

At Donna Dorée, sterling silver 925 is the core of all our beautiful creations. But what does that '925' actually mean? These numbers are more than just a stamp in your unique jewelry; they tell the story of the purity of the silver.
Sterling silver, also known as 925 silver, contains 92.5% pure silver, mixed with 7.5% other metals. Pure silver is naturally too soft for jewelry, so it is strengthened by this alloy, making it durable and wearable.

A gift from Mother Earth herself, silver is precious not only because of its rarity, but also because of its inherent beauty. It occurs as a natural material, coming from the depths of our planet. As one of the elements (Ag) that form our earth's crust, silver carries a mystical aura, as if Mother Earth forges her own jewelry.

“You know the world is a magical place when mother earth grows her own jewelry.”

Why does Donna choose Sterling Silver?

The choice for sterling silver at Donna Dorée was not made lightly. Donna (Wietske) has worn large jewelry all her life, but could discover few statement jewelry with such a beautiful base. Many other materials gave her rashes and irritations, but silver was the best sustainable option for her. Sterling silver 925 is hypoallergenic, which means that it is kind to the skin and prevents irritations. This makes it ideal for daily use and for people with sensitive skin. Furthermore, the silver offers a perfect balance between elegance and durability, making it a natural choice for Donna to design her jewelry on this basis.

Rhodium plated jewelry: rock-solid protection

Silver jewelry has a tendency to oxidize, which can lead to discoloration. But at Donna Dorée we go one step further to resist this natural reaction. Our goldsmiths apply a layer of rhodium to our precious metal jewelry, which provides extra protection. Rhodium, a hard and silver-white metal, forms a shield that protects jewelry against damage and external influences. With this rhodium plating, our silver jewelry not only retains its shine, but also remains beautiful for longer, free from tarnish or discoloration.

Waarborg Holland: the Dutch quality mark

In the Netherlands, gold, silver and platinum jewelry are inspected according to strict standards. At Donna Dorée we attach great importance to these quality standards. That is why all our jewelry is provided with the 'Responsibility mark in name' and a 'content mark', approved by Waarborg Holland. These small marks embody our commitment to craftsmanship and authenticity, a guarantee of the authenticity of our creations.
