Break up with Silver and Gold!
If you have a look at your collection of accessories and are wondering that all that you have is Gold and Silver jewellery, it is time for you to break up with them! Conventional gold and silver accessories work wonders in festivals and functions, but for your regular, moody days, you need something more experimental, right? Well, your classiest option is Oxidised jewellery!
Oxidised jewellery works as a substitute for Silver Jewellery. If you’re worrying about the quality and finesse of Oxidised jewellery sets, then let me tell you that the same kaarigars or workers, and the same machinery is used to make oxidised jewellery as silver jewellery!
Oxidized jewellery is spotted on large number in Garba dance during Navratri festival. It is also known as Navratri jewellery or Gujarati Jewellery.
Is silver really “Oxidised” in Oxidised Jewellery?
The reason this type of jewellery is called as oxidised jewellery is because it is an industrial term. Jewellery made from Sterling silver was initially oxidised. But, did you know? Nowadays, in the entire process of making oxidised silver, no oxygen is involved! Instead, Silver is blackened using sulphur solutions to get the desired blackening. It is not a very long process and women can even get their own DIY oxidised jewellery by simply following a sulphur and silver metal procedure!
What is so significant about Oxidised Jewellery?
This jewellery trend dates back to the tribes of India and was initially considered as a part of Indian tribal and ethnic jewellery. The process of oxidisation of silver dates back to around 1100 AD, where silver was oxidised to get rid of impurities. Little did they know, that years later, it would be a hot fashion trend!
Talking about trends, oxidised jewellery has been trending among the tribes of India since their very existence. In olden days, women used to put black dots with kajal around their neck to highlight the area where they wore their Oxidised Jewellery. Isn’t that cool?
Your pockets will be Happy, so will be your Skin!
Oxidised jewellery is cheaper than silver jewellery and the designs are bolder, exquisite and experimental. The chunky oxidised jewellery pieces are woven into Black or colourful woollen threads, and the metal is friendly to your skin, as no nickel is involved.
