Sterling Silver Metal

Silver jewelry is made from a .925 sterling silver metal. It is more popular today than ever before. With the great rise in price of 14kt gold silver is now very HOT!

Two things with silver that you may want to know before that big purchase.

#1. Silver is a very soft metal and unlike gold it can get scratched up pretty easily. You can polish it out as good as new but it will scratch a bit. So if the silver jewelry is on your hand it may scratch quicker than if it is around your neck like a necklace. But no fear it can be polished out very easily.

#2. Sterling Silver will eventually oxidize and turn dark grey and even black. But the beauty of the silver can be refurbished very easily right at home. There are many silver cleaners that will work well on your silver jewelry if it is oxidized or even black. There is also sterling silver jewelry cleaning cloths that work for years with just a tiny cloth. If you make a purchase from just request a FREE silver cloth to keep your sterling silver jewelry sparkling. No Charge!

14kt Gold Filled Metal

Gold of all types 14kt, 18kt. 10kt and more has been used in jewelry stores for hundreds of years and in general for thousands of years. But today people love the color of gold but many times lack the resources to purchase it. This is where an old time precious metal may come in handy. That is 14kt gold filled and no it’s not gold plate which is not much gold. But a 14kt gold over a brass core that is considered fine jewelry at 1/10th the price of solid gold. This is a useable gold that was created in the 1800s and we use in our jewelry all the time. Many times we use it alone or mix it with silver to create a silver/gold combination that looks terrific and is affordable.
