Antiqued: A rugged contrasted appearance of oxidized silver gives it a classic vintage feel. Usually paired with a rough finish for a natural, raw, and "already worn" metal look. This is a perfectly imperfect daily wear finish.
Polished: Shiny, high-end finish that makes a statement. Polished pieces are more "porous" and more prone to tarnishing. Please take extra care with these: use a polishing cloth to clean and take off your pieces to avoid scratches when active.
