What is Organic Silver?

If you've been keeping track of our various social media accounts - including Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook - then you may be wondering why we're making such a fuss about Organic Silver. Rest assured, we've got the answers to all your questions right here. 

So, what exactly is Organic Silver? Organic Silver is "the purest form of silver without added alloys." Just in case you dozed off during your high school chemistry class, alloys are substances composed of two or more metals, rather than just one metal. This is where the term "Organic Silver" stems from - silver without any additives.

The Zodiac Collection Cuff Bracelets and Pendants from Sixth Avenue Fine Jewelers are each hand-forged using recycled silver, with most pieces being one-of-a-kind. Due to the malleable nature of organic silver, bracelets can be easily adjusted to fit small to large sized wrists.  Just like your favorite pair of denim jeans, these pieces will look better with time! As the patina gradually wears, the sterling silver shine reveals itself and enhances the intricate details of the design. 


The VIRGO CUFF BRACELET in Organic Silver features the "Virgin" or "Maiden", the virginal symbolism attached to the sign of Virgo. Those with the Sign of Virgo are born between August 23 and September 22nd.
