Q4:Why does the silver turn black? How to deal with it?

A:Silver oxidative blackening is a common reaction. In simple terms, the higher the purity of the silver, the easier it is to oxidize. In addition, it is more related to the wearing environment of the wearer; those who sweat more or have a higher sulfur content in the sweat, and those who often apply perfume and cosmetics, are more likely to oxidize and blacken the worn silver.

Q5:What is the difference between 999 silver and 925 silver?

A:Generally we will say 999 pure gold, then pure silver should be 999 as well? However, in the international standard of silver, 925 (92.5% silver content) represents pure silver, because the hardness of 999 sterling silver is too soft, it is easy to deform being a jewelry, and it is easy to drop gems on the top of the jewel; so in 1851 Tiffany & Co. has blended 7.5 percent alloy into pure silver, and since then 925 silver has become the standard for sterling silver.

Q6:Is Platinum and white K gold the same thing?

A:Platinum and white K gold are completely different precious metal from each other. Platinum itself is a white precious metal, the market price is higher than k gold and its annual output is only 3~5% of gold. In addition, its weight is also heavier than gold, so it can be used to distinguish between platinum and white k gold. It is described in details in this article.

The metal made in this way is "K gold". The common ones are 18K gold (75.0% gold content) and 14K gold (58.5% gold content) are the mainstream, others are rare.

Q13:What should I do with pearl maintenance?

A:The best way to maintain pearls is to wear them regularly, because the body's natural oils keep the pearls shiny. Keep pearls away from household chemicals, including perfumes, cosmetics and hair sprays. The chemical substances of these products will make the pearl's luster dim. The sweat will also damage the pearl's attractive luster. Therefore, every time you wear pearl jewelry, you should wipe it gently with a soft cloth (such as a soft flannel that wipes the glasses or the camera lens), and allow it to air dry before storing.

In addition, in order to provide consumers with a more environmentally friendly recycled precious metal, mittag jewelry adapted Taiwan’s UWin Nanotech’s unique "eco gold stripping technology" recycled gold/silver which are called "Organic Gold" and "Organic Silver" in March, 2021. Since then, consumers have been provided with two material options, and whether you choose Fairmined Gold/Silver from mine area or Organic Gold/Silver from recycling, they are all coming from a friendly environment, no exploitative labor, and sustainable resources.
