Fine Silver or Pure Silver (99.9%) is Brilliant, bright, hypoallergenic & highest in tarnish resistance. We use this metal for our original one of a kind pieces and often accent them with very lustrous and colorful patinas. The below bracelets’ pendant and chain has been created using Fine Silver (except for the clasp, it’s Sterling Silver).
