Hot Diamonds Sterling Silver & Diamond
Silver was once called the 'lunar' metal – its appearance being cold and luminous, similar to the moon's reflection on water. It has always been a valuable metal, ever since it was discovered and first mined in Anatolia (now Turkey), more than 6,000 years ago. Classed as a 'Noble' metal, silver has a stable chemical structure that resists oxidisation and corrosion from acids.
At Hot Diamonds we're proud to use quality sterling silver in our silver jewellery collections. Sterling silver is an alloy – 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% copper. Copper is added to fine silver so that it becomes more workable and durable, whilst retaining all of its beauty.
Rhodium is the hardest of all precious metals and is extremely expensive. At Hot Diamonds, we plate all of our sterling silver jewellery with rhodium to ensure that our products have the most wear resistant finish possible, and that our sterling silver reflects light beautifully.
