SILNOVA ®

Brings silver to light

The new silver alloy that keeps its light over time.
Naturally.

 

Without any galvanic treatment, equal to a gold alloy, and 20 times longer than standard Sterling silver, SILNOVA ® keeps being bright over time. Eye-catcher thanks to its unique color, white and very shiny, it is visibly different from any other silver in the market.

SILNOVA ® UNIQUE FEATURES

SILNOVA Natural

NATURAL 

Using the SILNOVA ® silver means to free the jewel from any possible “cover”, ie by chemical treatments that are commonly used to protect it against tarnishing. The metal is natural and authentic, from the heart to the surface.

SILNOVA Resistant

RESISTANT 

The beauty and brilliance of the objects created with the SILNOVA ® silver continue over time, 20 times longer than an untreated traditional silver (galvanic treatments based on precious metals or cataphoretic painting).

SILNOVA Precious

PRECIOUS 

... thanks to a noble ingredient in the composition: palladium.
But SILNOVA ® is precious also because we wanted it to resist to tarnish as much as gold!
All the tests carried out prove in fact a strength equal to that of a 375‰ white gold alloy.

SILNOVA Color

UNIQUE COLOR 

White and very bright, clearly different from any other silver in the market, namely rhodium-plated or silver-plated sterling silver.

SILNOVA Processing

VERSATILE 

It guarantees freedom in manufacturing processes; in fact the adequate hardness obtained by heat-hardening treatment makes it resistant to wear.

SILNOVA Eco-friendly

ECO-FRIENDLY 

SILNOVA ® has no impact on the environment. It avoids the need for plating and frees silversmiths as well as the entire planet from the use of potassium cyanide (utilised for silver plating), otherwise necessary for making the product last.

LAB AND LIFE TESTED

SILNOVA ® is the result of a systematic documentation process, never used before within this sector, that scientifically combines laboratory tests with real-life tests.
