Materials & Jewelry Care
Pure silver, also called fine silver, consists of 99.9% silver. It is relatively soft, very malleable, and easily damaged. It has to be combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. At Renah Jae, jewelry is made of recycled 92.5% Sterling Silver with a mix of copper and zinc alloy to the remaining 7.5% to make it more resistant to damage and scratches. We strive to use the finest quality materials in the industry to craft each piece so that your Renah Jae purchases can be treasured forever. All of our jewelry is plated with a high quality layer of 18K Gold and Rhodium and an extra clear coating on top to keep your RJ pieces lasting longer.
It is completely natural for sterling silver to oxidize over time and gold layered pieces to fade to a light gold colour. If they are exposed to salt air and products containing sulfur, such as rubber bands and some papers, this process is quicker. As it’s certainly tempting to wear your Renah Jae jewellery all the time, we recommend removing them when doing any of the following activities excessively:
Carefully wipe jewelry with a soft cloth when necessary. Keep your piece in a sealed bag to keep oxygen at bay.
