Loco-motion is a sterling silver unisex pendant weighing 20.4g. The feature stone is an 8mm round brilliant cut lab-created padparadscha sapphire weighing 2.44ct. The small orange sapphire at the base of the bail is a 2.7mm rbc natural padparadscha sapphire weighing .12ct. I call this piece Loco-motion because of the crazy movement and the feeling of power as one rides the crest of a wave. Remind yourself that you can ride a wave of power as you move into the beauty of love and life. Get your "Loco" on!!!
Sterling Silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum purity of 925. Jewelry Works had developed a proprietary sterling silver alloy that is superior at holding its shape and tarnish resistance.
Fine silver, for example 99.9% pure silver, is relatively soft, so silver is usually alloyed with copper to increase its hardness and strength. Sterling silver is prone to tarnishing, and metals other than copper can be used in alloys to reduce tarnishing, as well as casting porosity and firescale. Such metals include germanium, zinc, platinum, silicon, tin or boron.
