Tiny ankh cross pendant could be worn on a chain as a small pendant for a child or as a sweet pendant on an adult. The tiny Ankh cross pendant is a symbol from Egyptian times. The circle on the top represents the sun. The line through the center or the arms represents the horizon. The base of the cross represents the river Nile. Without the River Nile in Egypt, nothing was fertile. Every year the Nile flooded the plains, making them rich in nutrients. So without the Nile, there was no fertility or life in Egypt. Hence the reason this symbol is for abundance or fertility.
Sterling silver meaning
This tiny ankh cross pendant is made from sterling silver and features a 92.5 stamp. This means it is 92.5% fine silver with no more than 7.5% of copper or other metals. This formula is internationally accepted and it gives sterling silver the hardness and the tolerance to work with. Anything higher than 92.5 would be too soft and tarnish too quickly. When you buy sterling silver from us, we can guarantee it is just that!
Sterling Silver care tips
To keep your sterling silver looking its best, use a silver polishing cloth or silvo on an old rag and give it a gentle rub. This will give your jewellery back its brilliant shine! Silver will tarnish from being exposed to air but will take a good six weeks to discolour. Items that are worn constantly will take a lot longer! To preserve the shine on your silver avoid contact with ammonia, alcohol, fingernail polish remover or turpentine. ALWAYS remove sterling silver jewellery while in natural hot pools because of the high sulphur content in the water. Do not use silver dip. Dip cleaners work for the first few times but it puts a layer on the silver and can discolour stones and shell. Toothpaste is also not a good idea as it is too abrasive.
If you see the words silver plated, that means it only has a coating of sterling silver over another alloy. This will fade over time and is not able to be polished. Our sterling silver products are not plated but sterling silver all the way through. Nothing but the good stuff for you!!
