Which is better? Stainless Steel or 925 Silver?

Stainless Steel Jewelry Explained

Stainless steel is a metal that presents properties superior to common steels.
It is characterized by its high resistance to oxidation, one of the major problems of the most common fittings. When in contact with atmospheric oxygen, a very thin and stable film called the 'passive layer' is formed, whose function is to protect the stainless steel surface against corrosion, and is also able to repair itself.This material has several possible finishes, from matte to glossy, and can be smooth, engraved, dyed, and printed. In this way, it is possible to give a unique identity to any piece that is made with this material. Pieces made with stainless steel do not rust and do not lose their color, so they can be used in any occasion and place. They also have the advantage of being simple to clean. They are an excellent option, besides being long lasting, they are also anti-allergic and more affordable than silver jewelry 😊
In DICCI's collection you can find the most varied accessories made in stainless steel, such as bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings and even watches.

925 Silver Jewelry explained

Silver 925 has in its composition 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals. Silver 950 has 95% pure silver and only 5% other metals. Silver can darken due to several factors, either by pollution or even by the type of skin of each person. Although 950 silver is purer, 925 silver is the most valued in high jewelry and has multiple advantages. One of them is, exactly, the fact that it takes longer to darken due to its composition. But calm down, there is a solution for this darkening! The darkening of silver is a natural process, however there are precautions that you can and should take to keep your pieces shiny. We recommend that you: regularly clean your pieces with a special silver cleaning cloth; do not use your pieces in the sea or in swimming pools, because chlorine and salt are harmful; do not keep several pieces together in the same bag. This way you will always keep your DICCI accessories as the first day you received them 😊

WHAT RING SIZE AM I?

Buying a ring online that fits you perfectly doesn't have to be mission impossible. The ring needs to be tight enough to not fall off, yet it needs to be handily enough to slip over the knuckles of your finger.
