Jewelry without discoloration - waterproof summer jewelry

Summer is the time when we flaunt our clothes and jewelry. Whether it's a day at the beach, a picnic in the park or a relaxed barbecue, the right accessory can give your outfit that little extra something. But what if your favorite jewelry rubs off or is not waterproof? At Silviate we have the perfect jewelry for you that won't fade and is perfect for summer.

Why does jewelry stain?

Discoloration of jewelry occurs when the jewelry's components react to elements such as air, water, or cosmetics. This oxidation causes discoloration both on the skin and on the jewelry itself. Cheap costume jewelry, which often contains nickel and brass, is particularly susceptible to this phenomenon. But care products and perfumes can also cause discoloration.

What does waterproof actually mean when it comes to jewelry?

Waterproof means that the jewelry can withstand contact with water without being damaged. For example, you can wear your jewelry while swimming or showering without it discoloring or losing its shine. Our waterproof necklace "Frozen Happiness" or the strawberry necklace are examples of jewelry that stays with you even in the water.

Where can I wear waterproof jewelry?

Whether in the shower, swimming or even in the sea, you can wear your waterproof jewelry anywhere. However, you should always test first whether your jewelry is really waterproof and does not discolor. Our Dolphin Necklace and Wave Chasers Necklace are perfect for a day by the sea.

My jewelry is staining – what can I do?

If your jewelry stains, you should remove it before showering, bathing or exercising. Applying perfume, hairspray or make-up should only be done after the jewelry has been removed. These products can react with the jewelry and cause discoloration. Are you looking for jewelry that doesn't rub off? Check out our Tropical Retreat Necklace or the Endless Flow Necklace .

How do I get discolored jewelry clean again?

You can often clean discolored jewelry with a mixture of baking soda or dish soap and water. An old toothbrush is perfect for getting into all corners and spaces. Remember to dry your jewelry well after cleaning.

Which materials are waterproof and do not stain?

The most robust materials that are both waterproof and colorfast are titanium and stainless steel. These metals are ideal for jewelry that is often exposed to water. Our Custom Handwritten Necklace and Stainless Steel Female Empowerment Necklace are perfect examples of this.

Robust materials such as titanium and surgical steel, also known as 316 stainless steel , are particularly recommended for waterproof jewelry. Precious metals such as gold and silver can also be worn when wet but are more vulnerable. Silver in particular has a tendency to discolor after prolonged contact with water, although this is usually easy to clean. It should be noted that chlorinated or highly saline water can be particularly harsh on jewelry and it may therefore be advisable to remove real jewelry in such situations.

When it comes to precious metals, it is crucial to consider the purity of the jewelry in question. For example, 925 silver consists of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other materials that can play a crucial role in discoloration and skin irritation.

316L stainless steel is an excellent material for waterproof jewelry. This metal, also known as surgical steel, has been used in surgical procedures worldwide for decades. Its hypoallergenic properties and water resistance make it ideal for jewelry making. At Silviate, necklaces are made from this robust and durable metal. Our chains are equipped with a high-quality PVD coating, which provides additional protection against discoloration and makes them particularly waterproof.

Titanium has proven to be a very valuable material for making jewelry. Due to its skin-friendly and biocompatible properties - it does not react with human tissue - it is ideal for people with allergies. It is also extremely robust and waterproof. You don't have to take off our titanium jewelry, like our earring and piercing collections, when showering, swimming or exercising.

Real gold jewelry is only partially waterproof. Due to the high purchase price and the fact that gold is not as robust as titanium or stainless steel, it is advisable to remove gold jewelry before coming into contact with water. Chlorinated or salty water can be particularly damaging to the precious metal.

Silver is also only partially waterproof . It begins to oxidize when exposed to air and changes color after a while. As with gold, water, especially chlorinated and saline water, can corrode the precious metal.

Whether you're planning a summer at the beach or just want an accessory that can be worn every day without fading, Silviate has the perfect jewelry for you. Explore our collections and find the perfect piece that will enhance your style and make your summer unforgettable.
