Many of Acanthus' designs feature an oxidized sterling silver surface that appears black in color. Please be aware that oxidization is a temporary surface treatment that will eventually fade over time to reveal it's own unique surface. This occurs at a rate which depends on the wearer and how it's worn. Avoid using lotions, soaps and chemicals on your oxidized pieces. 

Oxidization can always be reapplied to your favorite piece. Email for more information.
