What Is Oxidized Sterling Silver 

Have you fallen in love with our mixed metal styles? They are quickly becoming a customer favorite! One of the elements that makes our mixed metal pieces so special is the Oxidized Sterling Silver, or the black metal finish. 

Yep! The black metal finish is actually a nickel-free sterling silver that we've treated in our studio to make it that deep, rich black hue. 

The oxidized sterling silver is different than traditional sterling silver because it's dark and not quite as shiny. The sterling silver has been treated with an oxygen treatment to create the flat black color. 

Here are a few of our favorite mixed metal pieces!
