What is Silver?
Silver is a soft white metallic element and is considered as one of the most useful and beautiful objects of the world. Silver jewelry ranks next to gold. Thus, it is known today as the “Jewelry of the Millenium”.
What is Sterling Silver?
Sterling silver means high quality or genuine. Sterling silver contains 92.5% of silver and thus is the only silver allowed by International Law to be named Sterling Silver.
Why 92.5% sterling silver not pure 99.9% silver?
Sterling silver contains 92.5% only because 99.9% pure silver would be too soft to stand up under constant wear. So it is mixed with 7.5% copper to form an alloy before it is made into commercial articles. You can be sure that all jewelry offered by IBAY'S SILVER SHOP are guaranteed 92.5% STERLING SILVER.
Is silver hypo-allergenic?
Yes, IBAY'S produces STERLING SILVER JEWELRY that won't irritate your skin. Other silver jewelry contains nickel or are made from old coins which are 75% silver only. These kinds are allergenic and cannot easily be determined unless the item is ASSAY TESTED. Some would simply put a mark of 92.5% to mislead you, so beware!
Here at IBAY'S, we guarantee you of our silver jewelry high quality. You can come and visit our workshop and see for yourself.
Will the color of silver jewelry tarnish?
Sterling silver remains as beautiful as it is for a lifetime. However, since your jewelry is exposed to air and pollution, it will become antique looking or will lack luster. Thus, it is necessary to clean silver properly by either using metal polish for plain works or little baking soda + boil to hot water for plain and filigree works. You can also use any brand of Silver Liquid Cleaner available at all IBAY'S SILVER SHOP outlets. (Click on Other Infos for complete details on how to clean your silver jewelry)
