Gone are the days when women behaved like magpie birds and liked only shiny stuff. Oxidised jewelry made women fall in love with it as much as they loved their other glittering pieces. Many would also know the oxidized jewellery as Tribal or German silver oxidised jewelry. With women not wanting to adorn precious jewelry all the time, fashion jewellery started to make its way into jewelry boxes and that is when oxidized jewellery started becoming popular. Increasing prices of gold and silver jewelry also added to the increase in demand for this kind of jewellery.
Oxidised jewelry is made with a combination of pure silver and another metal to create an alloy in the ratio of 80 to 20. Silver gives the jewelry the pliability and the other metal brings down the cost of the piece. Oxidised jewelry comes in the trendiest of designs, right from traditional and tribal designs to chic and urbane ones which you can even wear to work. The affordability of this kind of jewellery and its low maintenance is another reason why women are increasingly drawn to add it to their jewelry collection.
