About Custom Jewelry
We mostly use casting method . This process is very lengthy , pricey, and many vendors are involved in each step. That is why we do not offer making any custom jewelry. However, we are able to make custom head pieces using wire twisting methods. Depending on the design, the process will take min 4 months.
About Sterling Silver Jewelry
Silver has been used to make jewelry since ancient times. Pure silver is very soft so when it is used to make jewelry it is mixed with another metal. It is then referred to as 'Sterling Silver', which is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% of another metal, usually copper. At Luxia Jewelry we guarantee all of our silver items to be sterling silver jewelry with a silver content of at least 92.5%.
About Rhodium Plating
Sterling silver jewelry will tarnish over time when it comes in contact with gases in the air, such as, sulfur. You can clean the jewelry with a polishing cloth or a professional jeweler's buff. However, this can damage the piece and the tarnish will return after continued exposure to the air.
At Luxia we plate our Sterling Silver items with the precious metal called rhodium. Rhodium is a member of the platinum family and gives each of our jewelry pieces an expensive white reflective look that resembles platinum jewelry. The rhodium plating helps the silver jewelry resist scratching and gives them a natural barrier that protects them from exposure to the air and thereby tarnishing.
Do not use any chemicals or polishing clothes on our rhodium plated silver jewelry. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner, silver dips or any kind of ammonia based product that will erode the rhodium plating.
However, the rhodium plating does not last forever and can wear away depending how frequently the jewelry comes in contact with the acid in your skin or other elements.
About Cubic Zirconia
Some of our sterling silver jewelry is set with a synthetic gemstone called cubic zircionia (also referred to as 'CZ'). Cubic zirconia is the cubic crystalline form of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2). It is durable, optically flawless and comes in a variety of colors.
CZ's provide an excellent alternative to real diamonds at a fraction of the price. They are so similar in appearance that usually only a trained gemologist can tell them apart.
CZ's, as with diamonds, come in different grades. At Luxia we only use and source top quality stones.
