What is Oxidized silver and why do you need it in your jewelry collection?
Oxidized silver is a type of silver that has been intentionally darkened through a chemical process
Answer: Oxidized silver is a type of silver that has been intentionally darkened through a chemical process. This creates a unique antique look to the silver, giving it a more edgy and sophisticated look. Darkening the silver also showcases texture and details better. Oxidized silver jewelry has become increasingly popular in recent years, especially in contemporary fashion styles.
Oxidized silver also gives another color option for your jewelry collection. It mixes beautifully with both silver and gold. The traditional philosophy of wearing only one color of metal no longer applies. The current trend is to mix metals for an interesting modern look. As shown here on our Fine silver Chain

Oxidizing the silver can also add subtle texture to a piece. By gently brushing and removing the black from parts of the piece, it can highlight it well. Often the oxidization can showcase the crevices in a piece to give it visual depth as seen on the hope talisman.
