About Our Silver
Sterling Silver is an elegant white colour and a highly reflective metal, due to which it finds extensive use in the jewellery industry.
In the pure form, silver is a precious and malleable metal. Thus silver is combined with different metals to make an alloy to enhance its durability, prevent damage and create a better lustre. This alloy is known as sterling silver.
Our sterling silver consists of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper which lends silver the desired hardness. Sterling Silver may be marked 925, which means that 925 parts per thousand are pure silver.
In knowing that some people are allergic to nickel and other products used in the manufacture of jewellery, none of Redraglyns Gem’s sterling silver jewellery contains nickel or cadmium. Redraglyns Gems only chooses Sterling Silver that has a minimum of 92.5% silver and only has copper added to it.
Over time, oxidation reactions will occur and silver will tarnish causing the silver to lose its shine. This is caused by the reaction of silver to sulphur, oxygen and other chemicals in the air causing the silver to develop a patina, which is a kind of glow combined with dark areas. While this looks good on many jewels, many people may want the lustre back. If the patina is desired do not polish the silver, if it is not, clean the silver and then polish it for best results.
Knowing how to care for your silver jewellery will keep them in the same pristine condition as the day you bought them.
