Frequently Asked Questions by Our Customers
1. What is 14K Over .925 sterling silver
Pure silver is too soft to make jewelry. Sterling silver is an alloy made with pure silver and other metals depending on the manufacturer. In 1000 parts of the alloythere are 925 parts that are pure silver (.999 silver)and 75 parts are other metalwhich mostly is copper. This is why sterling silver is also called .925 silver. You will see the .925 or S925 stamp on an area of the jewelry. When 14 to 18 karate gold is coated on top of the sterling silverit becomes 14K or 18K over sterling silver.
2. Why does sterling silver tarnish
Pure silver does not tarnish. Copper does. When a piece of sterling silver is exposed to oxygenit changes into a yellowish color. This is also called oxidized silver. That is the copper that is tarnishing. When a piece of sterling silver is wornthe human body oil reacts with coppercombined with oxygenit then appears to be blackish color. Howeverwhen there is a layer of gold coated on top of the sterling silverit seals up the silver and thus prevent the silver from tarnishing.
