Sterling Silver Care Guide
925 STERLING SILVER
Made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, 925 sterling silver is one of the most popular materials for jewelry making thanks to its durability. Unlike pure silver, which is too soft to work with, sterling silver is harder, making the metal perfect for more intricate and complex jewelry designs.
To maintain the brilliant shine of your sterling silver jewelry, avoid any contact with water. While pure water does not damage 925 sterling silver, most water we encounter is not purified. To keep that enviable shine intact, store your silver in an airtight bag with an anti-tarnish strip. Silver is durable, but can be scratched if care is not taken. To polish it without scratching, use either a special jewelry or microfiber cloth.
