925 sterling silver jewelry - popular alloy for real jewelry
Genuine jewelry are rings, chains and Co., which are made of precious metal. Thereby, jewelry made of 925 silver is not the pure precious metal, which would be much too soft and would quickly lose its shape. It applies: A good mixture makes it! The so-called alloy, i.e. the admixture of other metals, ensures better hardness and polishability. So you can enjoy your unique pieces for a long time. Fejn uses only 925 sterling silver for the filigree pieces. The number 925 is actually a percentage, because it consists of 92.5% pure silver. The remaining 7.5% are added other metals, such as copper. This ratio is especially good for making high-quality 925 sterling silver earrings or other jewelry.
Silver vs. Gold – Which jewelry suits me?
Silver jewelry in the original tone, rosé, yellow gold-plated or full gold? The decision for a favorite piece is not so easy. With silver jewelry from fejn, our jewelry heroines always have the (color) choice. Every piece of jewelry made of 925 sterling silver can also be shopped with 24 carat gold plating in rose or yellow gold. Allowed is what pleases! For those who are now saying "I can't decide!", silver jewelry goes particularly well with cooler skin tones and autumnal, wintry looks.
Yellow gold, on the other hand, exudes warmth and looks simply stunning on tanned skin. Rose gold does both quite well and is also great to wear bicolor or tricolor, with other metal colors.If the choice is yellow gold, there is of course also the option to go for solid gold. A great investment, not only for your own look. Price-wise, however, the price of gold is higher than the price of silver, which can also be a deciding factor.
Necklaces, rings, earrings: store recycled 925 silver correctly
As a precious metal, 925 recycled silver is naturally strong and durable, but improper storage and care can cause tarnishing and lack of luster. 925 silver jewelry should therefore ideally not or rarely come into contact with water. So before taking a shower in the morning or cooling off in the pool, it is best to take off the jewelry. This rule also applies before extensive care rituals with creams and the like. The ingredients contained in the creams could attack the material and take away the shine or affect the color.
If the filigree fejn jewelry is not worn, it should be protected from oxygen and sun. This prevents tarnishing. Jewelry boxes are a good place for our clean real jewelry - at least when it's getting a little break.
Discolored jewelry: clean 925 sterling silver in no time
If the silver jewelry is tarnished, it does not have to be disposed of by any means. The black layer (of so-called silver sulfide) can be removed again! In this case, jewelry made of 925 sterling silver can take a bath - and a very special one at that. In the "aluminum-salt method", silver jewelry is immersed in a warm saline solution together with standard aluminum foil. After a few minutes, discolorations should have disappeared. A special silver cleaning cloth provides additional relief. If the jewelry is not discolored but simply contaminated, a bath in warm water with dishwashing detergent will also help. If you also try the search engine of choice, you will find many more household tips for cleaning.
Therefore, buy recycled 925 sterling silver
Silver mining sometimes causes serious erosion or widespread groundwater contamination in the mining areas. In addition, mining is a real CO2 guzzler. Why buy recycled silver?

For example, if you're going for a glitzy outfit that's already eye-catching, you can be a little more restrained when it comes to choosing jewelry. Stud earrings or plain sterling silver rings for ladies are a good choice here. Those who opt for the little black dress or want to pimp the clean business look a bit for the after-work dinner are well advised with creoles. Ornate sterling silver earrings are also a good choice. Pearl earrings, whether as plugs or hoop earrings, always exude a graceful elegance and are perfect for dignified occasions or the work look.

Gemstones, such as cubic zirconia, also shine particularly brightly and add a romantic flair, especially popular with the sterling silver ring.
History of 925 silver jewelry
For thousands of years, men and women have adorned themselves with silver jewelry. The ancient Egyptians were already fond not only of gold jewelry, but also of silver jewelry. About 5,000 years ago, they began with the production of jewelry. Starting with clasps and bracelets, a craft with many facets emerged. Even today there are numerous silver jewelry finds from there. High quality sterling silver, also called 925 silver, has been in use since about the 12th century. The term is derived from "e(a)sterling", which meant "coming from the East". The early "sterlings", i.e. silver pennies, were in fact a means of coin payment imported to England from mainland Europe. Today, recycled 925 silver is particularly popular for high-quality silver jewelry. This is just as high quality and even better for the environment. Win-win for jewelry fans and our planet.
