Will the silver go dark with time?
Silver is a very good jewelry making material because it is adaptable, bright and reflects light well. But pure silver is soft, so jewelry is made of alloys (usually 92.5% silver and 7.5% some other metal, mostly copper).
When wearing jewelry, the silver eventually loses its glow, but it is also possible that with time the silver will overlay a thin, blackish layer. Such a layer is a consequence of the oxidation, which occurs due to metals within the alloy (copper is often the cause because it easily and quickly oxidizes) as well as everyday causes such as sweat, cosmetics, sunlight, heat, perfumes and similar preparations we expose ourselfs to. The silver oxidation process begins with the loss of gloss, the jewelry takes on a yellowish color, with the time the color will go black. In order to slow down this process and to make silver jewelry as bright as possible, a thin layer of rhodium is applied on the silver jewelry, which also protects it from external influences. Tarnished jewelry can be brought to any of our stores so we will polish it and renew with a new layer of rhodium, after which its appearance returns to its original, shiny and light condition.
Is it better to take shiny or matte wedding rings? Does the matte outwear with time?
Each type of jewelry being worn is exposed to external influences and potential damage. Wedding rings are particularly endangered because they are continuously worn and they usually are not removed from fingers.
Therefore, it is not unusual that matte outwear by the time, but as well the brilliant wedding ring will also get small scratches caused by unconscious scrubbing with rough or hard surfaces. But you should not be discouraged while choosing your wedding ring, because the most important thing is that you like the rings.
If we have to extend, cut, polish, renew matte, embed a new zircon, we will do it all for free, because by purchasing our wedding rings you get a certificate and a lifetime guarantee for its maintenance.
What if I buy a gift and the person I gave it to does not like it?
To give a gift to someone special is always a great joy, especially if it is mutual. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to hit the taste of the person we want to cheer. If the person you buy a gift in our store does not like it, you can replace it within 15 days with the invoice. Of course, the jewelry should be in the original packaging, undamaged and unworn.
Tips for the insecured ones:
If you are not sure if the person you want to buy a gift will like it, you can also buy a gift voucher (in the value of 200.00 kn, 500.00 kn or 1.000,00 kn) availible at our stores, which can be used by the person to whom you give it in any of our stores.
We have heard that white gold can turn yellowish, is it true?
Gold is in the nature yellow colored, and "white gold" as such in nature does not exist. In order to obtain a partial white gold color, alloys of other metals are added to gold. But such an alloy is not the color we recognize as white gold. In order to obtain a recognizable white gold color and strengthen its glow, white gold jewelry is applied by a thin layer of rhodium by the galvanization process. As a thin surface layer, the upper fabrication of white gold jewelry will wear out after a certain period of wearing, after which the real color of the yellowish white gold alloy will be visible. Such a situation is inevitable, but easy to handle – you can bring the "yellowish“ white gold jewelry to any of our stores and we will renew it.
