Pure silver, also known as fine silver, is rather soft, very malleable, and easily damaged so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The preferred of these alloys is sterling silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. Even though any metal can make up the 7.5 percent non-silver portion of sterling, centuries of experimentation have shown copper to be its best companion, improving the metal’s hardness and durability without affecting its beautiful color. The small amount of copper added to sterling has very little effect on the metal’s value. Instead, the cost of the silver item is affected by the labor involved in making the item, the skill of the craftsperson, and the intricacy of the design.
With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime. To minimize scratches and other damage, store your silver jewelry either in a cloth pouch or in a separate compartment in your jewelry box. Avoid exposing your silver to household chemicals when cleaning with bleach or ammonia, or when swimming in chlorinated water, as these chemicals can damage silver.
Clean Your Silver Regularly
Care will have to also be taken to prevent silver tarnish build-up, a dulling that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the ambient air. To clean your silver, use polishes formulated specifically to remove tarnish. You’ll be able to find fine silver polishes, solutions, or cloths appropriate to remove tarnish at most hardware stores or specialty craft stores. Tarnish is most easily removed when it first becomes visible. Even though wearing your silver jewelry incessantly is one of the best ways to prevent tarnish from building up, regular cleanings of your entire silver items will prevent tarnish and keep your silver bright and sparkling.
