Sterling Silver

Because Silver is a soft, malleable and easily damaged metal, it is combined with other metals to make it stronger before being used to make items like the jewellery found in the Miss Silver Collection. Sterling Silver contains 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Copper improves the durability of silver, producing a stronger metal without compromising the colour. Jewellery made from Sterling Silver should carry a stamp that reads .925, certifying that it contains 92.5% Silver. The Miss Silver Collection is plated in Sterling Silver, offering the beauty of silver combined with durability and strength to create a stunning range of jewellery that will wear well and maintain its shine for years.

Caring for Silver Jewellery

Silver jewellery can last a lifetime if cared for properly. Store your silver jewellery separately in cloth pouches or compartments in a jewellery box. Remove your silver jewellery before exposing it to household chemicals that contain bleach or ammonia, and before swimming in chlorinated water. Chemicals can damage silver, and it is safer to remove your jewellery before washing your hands as it prevents loss as well. Silver can over time tarnish and become dull due to a reaction to sulphur and hydrogen sulphide in the air. Specially formulated silver polish, silver cleaning cloths and other solutions should be used to remove any tarnish as soon as it appears. Regular cleaning will keep your silver jewellery looking bright and sparkling. Jewellery merchants can order a cleaning cloth from Something Special to keep their display items in mint condition.
