Sterling silver, also called 925 silver, was named after the British currency, the Pound Sterling. The number 925 included in the hallmark of a piece of jewellery indicates that it is made of a high-quality alloy, composed of 925 parts of silver and 75 parts of copper. Why copper? Because it makes the silver harder and more resistant. The hallmark on each individual piece of jewellery produced by us guarantees that this piece is made of high quality, 925 sterling silver. It stands for top product quality and excellent skin compatibility. Did you know that, as a consequence of natural oxidation, our skin is capable of absorbing minimal quantities of ions contained in a piece of jewellery? And that materials of lower qualities can trigger allergies? Due to its antibacterial effects and hygienic qualities silver is not only successfully used for medical purposes – today, sterling silver is the alloy that is most widely used in jewellery production.
Every single piece of LaViida-jewellery stands out due to its exquisite design and perfect craftsmanship. With our jewellery you can be sure that every part of it is made of high-quality 925 sterling silver. The value of silver jewellery can easily be identified through its hallmark. An assay marking (hallmark) furnishes proof of the type of metal used and the purity of the alloy (fineness mark). The hallmark is considered to be a guarantee of authenticity. It proves that the stated fineness corresponds to the statutory provisions. As a proof of its top quality and its absolute fineness and also for the purpose of a simplified control, we apply a hallmark on each individual part of our pieces of jewellery. This facilitates the verification and analysis of the value of the piece of jewellery and guarantees, apart from the exquisite design and perfect craftsmanship, the use of 925 sterling silver in each individual piece of our collection.
