J.Hopenstand exclusively uses silver 925 for its cufflinks. Silver 925 is composed of 92.5% of silver and the rest is other metals such as brass to make it stronger and easier to work on. J.Hopenstand cufflinks are then rhodium-plated, that is to say covered with a thin layer of rhodium. Rhodium is a rare metal that limits natural silver oxidation and makes it brighter. Silver remains however a precious metal that tarnishes over time because of its chemical composition.

Care advice

use precautions

In order to limit the natural oxidation of your silver cufflinks, J.Hopenstand advices you to avoid contact with water. When you are not wearing your cufflinks, we suggest you store them in the small cover provided on purpose.
