Silver is now the metal that is mostly used throughout the world. In its purest state, silver can be as soft as gold and therefore it is generally alloyed with another metal, usually copper, to add strength. Any piece of silver or sterling silver must be 92.5 percent pure to be considered real silver. The finish of silver can be polished to a high sheen that not even platinum can match. The finish can also take on different textures when made into jewelry like polishing, matte or brushed, sandblasted, oxidized, or antiqued.
Rhodium Plated is a tarnish free finish.
Care & Cleaning:
Silver requires more maintenance than any other metal. Tarnishing occurs because silver reacts to pollutants in the air, which is then exacerbated by moisture and heat. Tarnishing can be removed by chemical tarnish removing solution.
