What is Sterling Silver?

Sterling silver is a silver alloy containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. This combination gives Sterling Silver the necessary strength and durability for jewelry making, while maintaining its natural shine and beauty. Sterling Silver is a great alternative to more expensive precious metals like gold or platinum.

  1. Durable - Sterling Silver is strong and resistant to damage, making it perfect for everyday wear.

  2. Hypoallergenic - Unlike some other metals, Sterling Silver is unlikely to cause an allergic reaction in most people.

  3. Versatile - Sterling Silver can be used to create a wide range of jewelry styles, from classic to modern.

  4. Affordable - Sterling Silver is more affordable than gold or platinum, making it a great choice for high-quality jewelry at a lower cost.

The Disadvantages of Gold Plated Silver

In contrast, gold plated silver, while more affordable than solid gold, has several disadvantages. The gold plating can wear off over time, leaving the jewelry looking dull and unattractive. The chemicals used in the plating process can also cause skin allergies and irritations. Additionally, the plating solution used in the process can be polluting to the environment.
