All our jewellery is nickel-free.
Silver is a delicate and classic precious metal. The beautiful white glamour of silver has fascinated people since ancient times. Even today, silver is the most popular material in jewelry.
Genuine silver darkens over time. Even darkened silver is not ruined, but can always be cleaned. Wear silver jewelry regularly. The use prevents silver from darkening. Cleaning should be done at the latest when the first signs of darkening are observed. You can clean silver jewelry even before darkening, thus protecting the jewelry and preventing darkening. You can also prevent darkening by storing silver jewelry in an airtight plastic bag. You can get silver cleaners from jewelers or large department stores. Silver jewelry should be kept separate from other metal objects and jewelry. Silver is easily scratched and loses its shine when scratched.
The 925 stamp is the most common mark for silver. The 925 stamp means a piece of jewellery containing 92.5% silver, known as sterling silver. All Hopea-Puro's silver Jewelry are nickel free.
Sometimes silver jewelry is rhodinized, i.e., coated with a thin layer of rhodium. The rhodium coating gives the jewelry a bright, high-gloss surface and prevents the jewelry from darkening.
Steelmaking has been known in China since the 20th century, but as a jewelry material, stainless steel has gained popularity in recent years. The dark shade of the jewelry steel brings depth to the jewelry, and the properties of the metal make stainless easy to care for and long-lasting.
Stainless steel is a material that is non-allergenic and non-darkening. It is suitable for all allergy sufferers and cleaning it is easy. You can use case detergent and an old toothbrush to clean stainless steel jewelry.
The stamp of the jewellery steel is 316L, which you will find on all Silverpuro steel jewellery. 316L steel can also be called surgical steel.
Rhodium plating means that the surface of the jewellery is treated with rhodium. It protects the jewellery and gives it a beautiful shiny surface. The rhodium-plated silver-powder jewellery has brass underneath and rhodium plating on top.
The silver-plated jewelry stays beautiful for a long time and delights its owner when taken care of properly. With silver-plated jewelry, you should not go to the shower, sweat, or use it in the sauna. The silver surface should be protected from all chemicals and moisture. Silvering may darken over time. You can slow down darkening by storing silver jewelry in an airtight plastic bag. The silver-plated parts of the jewelry gradually wear out in use and the color of the metal, which may differ from the surface color, is revealed below.
Silver-plated jewellery is a cheaper option than full silver. Silver plated jewellery is an affordable way to add to your jewellery collection. Hopea-Puro's Silver plated jewellery is plated with brass. If your skin pH is strong, we do not recommend copper jewellery.
Silver Puro silver plated Jewelry are nickel free.
Jewelry alloy is an alloy of several different metals. Using a jewelry metal alloy, the price of jewelry can be considered affordable for the customer. Jewelry metal alloy can be used to make jewelry of different colors. If you are particularly sensitive to nickel, we recommend only jewellery made of steel and silver.
Leather Jewelry should be taken off and stored before going to the shower or sauna. The leather of the jewelry is either industrial surplus or domestic reindeer leather. The material on the hook is stainless steel. Jewelry is handmade in Finland.

Heta Salmi is a Porvoo-based jewelry maker, who draws inspiration from nature for her jewelry:
“I make sculptural silver jewelry as small series production.
I make my jewelry last a long time, that's why the design language is timeless and soft.
I work in Finland's oldest goldsmith's workshop in Aurum, the old town of Porvoo. I jog and exercise a lot in nature. I am constantly making observations and, sometimes, there may be an alone dandelion on the roadside that fascinates with its mundaneness and makes me think about its possibility of continuing its life as a jewel.”

The logo for the collection is again the work of graphic designer Siiri Saarimaa. In autumn 2020, the Association for Finnish Work awarded the collection the prestigious Design from Finland label. The label can be awarded to a company whose product range has been conceived and designed in Finland to form a clear and distinctive whole.
