Oxidised: Oxidised pieces are blackened and sanded back slightly to reveal edges and other highlights. The oxidisation will wear away over time, revealing the natural silver underneath. The rate to which this happens depends on where the piece is worn - e.g. oxidisation on earrings will last longer than rings. The finish can be reapplied upon request, if desired.
Polished: The polished silver finish has a medium shine with some minor oxidisation in the textures and details. We polish with a brass brush and polishing cloth rather than polishing compounds, to bring out a more natural shine.
