We value 925 silver it for its strong durability, its therapeutic virtues, its history, and the legends that accompany its ancient origins. With a brilliant and shiny appearance after polishing, it ages beautifully. 925 sterling silver, comprising 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper/zinc alloy, is an ideal choice for those preferring cooler but rich tones, having sensitive skin, or seeking a premium metal resistant to discoloration.
Over time, silver jewelry may naturally oxidize due to air, humidity, or chemicals, but a simple cleaning can restore its original shine. To prevent oxidation, regularly wear your jewelry, store it in a sealed container or jewelry box when not in use, avoid exposure to saline or chlorinated waters, refrain from storing in high humidity areas, and prevent contact with lotions and perfumes. These measures ensure lasting brilliance and minimize the impact of environmental factors on your silver pieces.

Symbolizing the act of severing attachment to the self to achieve enlightenment, Kartika is a symbol associated with the Dakinis, the tantric deities who move in the sky (the sky dancers). It is a curved billhook crowned with a hook, adorned with a Makara, the aquatic creature from Buddhist and Hindu mythology. The hook on the blade of the knife is a hook of compassion as it escapes sentient beings from the sea of suffering. The knife destroys attachment to the things of the world and the illusion of duality to achieve spiritual fulfillment and bliss. The edge of the blade evokes the all-powerful character of wisdom which overturns blindness with its force.

Kartika is an object of power dedicated to one who clings too long to what must be left behind. Unhealthy relationship, attachment to illusions, addiction to consumption, affection, media, gambling, and more. With her right hand, the Dakini wields the knife, seizes power, and is ready to cut through the attachments that keep us trapped in this world.

Since the Dakini is associated with the tenth day following the full moon, when the latter is descending, the blade of the Kartika ceremonial knife also takes on the shape of a crescent moon.
