The tail feathers on this bird of paradise pin are incredible! Victor Pereyra once again creates a wonderful pin using pure silver which allows him to give this piece such great detail! I love the way he defines each of the tail feathers! Because the piece is made using pure silver (.999) instead of sterling silver (.925), the piece will not tarnish as easily over time as stering silver since sterling has a copper alloy in it which causes the metal to tarnish over time. The clasp that is attached to the pin is marked "925" which gives the piece a secure pin. Therefore, the "925" stamp is not indicative of the silver content of the pin itself, but rather the clasp that is attached to each piece.
