Every piece of jewellery is carefully designed to last for decades of daily use. All findings including chains and earring backs have been chosen with comfort and ease of use in mind.
All jewellery pieces have been designed in a way that they can be repaired over and over again. No plating has been used to artificially enhance the shine of the metal. About 90% of the silver material used is recycled and the rest comes from Nordic mines that take care of the environment and sustainability.
All professional precious metal jewellery makers in Finland are registered and have their own unique stamp to make every piece of work traceable to its original producer. Sini Kolari jewellery is stamped with "FIN", three letters that I chose because they perfectly represent my ideal of high quality jewellery made in Finland.
Taking care of your silver jewellery
Silver is a natural material that has a soft, living finish. Its appearance will slowly change over the years while wearing and as it comes into contact with oxygen or sulfur. While it's possible to restore a silver piece to its original shine at a professional goldsmith's, you can also find subtle beauty in appreciating the natural aging of silver jewelry.
Here are some helpful tips to keep your jewellery shining:
The easiest way to avoid tarnishing is by wearing your jewellery as often as possible!
Try to avoid contact with cosmetics, perfume, lotion and hair products (or any other chemicals), as those will accelerate tarnishing. Also, remove silver jewellery when doing household chores, swimming or sunbathing.
Store your silver jewellery in an airtight plastic bag when it's not in use or being displayed. When traveling with your jewellery, carry each piece individually packed in its own box or pouch to avoid scratching.
Clean the jewelry by washing it gently with warm soapy water or mild dishwashing liquid. Dry with a soft cloth.
Clean your black patinated silver jewelry gently with soap water only if needed. Avoid silver polish or dip style cleaning products which might remove the patina.
