24k Gold Plated over Sterling Silver
Sterling silver is a hypoallergenic metal, comprising 92.5 per cent silver and 7.5 per cent copper. There is no nickel in sterling silver. The copper makes it more durable so it not only looks beautiful, but lasts a lifetime. Sterling silver is a pure metal and prone to tarnishing. This is a natural process, and occurs because of skin oils, cosmetics, smoking or earborne chemicals reacting with the metal. However it is easily cleaned and a number of cleaning products are availabe from your local supermarket.
