Silver has been known since ancient times. It was already worked in the 4th century BC by the semi-nomadic populations of the Middle East and was widely spread thanks to the merchants of the Roman Empire . It is thanks to the Roman Empire that silver began to be considered a precious material with which to make jewellery. Roman jewelers attempted (often surpassing their mastery) to "copy" the chiselling and embossing techniques of the artisans of Asia Minor, who at that time specialized in the creation of silver jewellery.

The use of silver in making jewellery

Silver processing is experiencing a real "surge" in Latin America. The Spanish conquistadors were literally fascinated by the enormous quantity of silver that was worked by the Incas. Paradoxically, however, the discovery of America (and its enormous silver deposits) contributed to the slow decline of this precious metal. In the Middle Ages, in fact, silver (and jewelery made of silver) was relatively rare and precious in Europe. It was considered the most precious metal immediately after gold. The devaluation of the value of silver following the discovery of South American deposits (Argentina takes its name from its enormous reserves of this metal) continues to this day.

The production of Blossom Jewelry

We use the highest quality 925 sterling silver to make our jewelry . We chose this material because it is beautiful and because it lends itself well, due to its ductility, to the creation of the splendid details that characterize our production. We follow all the standards required by law to create jewelery that is not only beautiful, but also flawless from a qualitative point of view.

Let's take care of our jewels

Jewelery made of silver alloy in contact with some types of skin (varies from person to person) can attract unsightly dirt particles . To overcome this problem it is necessary to adopt some precautions. Cleaning must never be carried out too rigorously and excessively aggressive detergents must not be used. The risk is to ruin your jewelery forever. The use of common toothpaste (and a soft bristle toothbrush) will be more than enough to take care of your jewelry without the risk of ruining it. In the case of obvious or difficult to eliminate stains, you can use a mixture of water and bicarbonate. Be careful though! It is an extremely corrosive compound. Rinse thoroughly with water immediately after treatment.
