What is Silver and how to treat Silver jewellery

     Chemists classify silver (Ag - Argentum) as a transition metal and is also classified as a precious metal (not very abundant in the Earth's crust). What makes it rate higher than other metals.  Because it is attractive and not very chemically active make the metal desirable in jewelry, coins, and art.

925 Sterling Silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. Fine silver (99.9% pure) is generally too soft for producing functional objects, and in Sterling Silver, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give strength whilst preserving the malleability of the silver and a high precious metal content - ideal for making silver jewellery. Notwithstanding Silver has this quality still it could develop tarnish if extensively used with chemicals as soaps, perfumes, creams or cleansing products. The tarnish could develop over time but which could be cleaned easily. So it is important how you will use your Silver jewellery if you`d like to preserve its shining and beauty avoid wearing your jewellery while:

- cleaning

- sporting or sleeping

- taking hygiene

- using any aggressive chemicals

While not wearing your Silver jewellery store it in close jewellery box in dry place.

Because jewelry is a fine commodity, you avoid jewelry from excessive traction or pressure


At-home ring sizing:

1. Wrap a piece of measuring tape around your finger, in the area where the ring would be worn (just past the knuckle). As the widest part of the finger, it’s essential that the ring can slide past without pain or discomfort, yet not be too loose as to fall off once worn. This will provide measurements which can be checked against a jeweler's own ring-sizing system.

2. Many of the best jeweller’s offer a ring sizing chart or diagram, which can be viewed online and even printed off and wrapped around the finger to provide greater accuracy.
