What is sterling silver 925 jewellery?
This designation refers to jewellery that contains at least 92.5% silver. The remaining 7.5% is copper, which endows the jewellery with its required strength. Silver Sisters silver jewellery is quality-assured by standards institutes throughout the world, which verify the amount of pure silver used in each item. The 925 stamp found on each piece indicates the quality of the silver and its compliance with international standards.
My jewellery is turning black; what can I do?
Blackening is a natural process that occurs in silver as a result of oxidation. You may find that in summer your jewellery blackens faster due to the acidity of sweat and the humidity in the air. You can clean Silver Sisters jewellery with a special detergent for silver jewellery or with a jewellery cleaning cloth (available free with your purchase).
How can I keep my jewellery in good condition?
Keeping your jewellery shiny and glistening does not take much effort. We recommend the following:
Regularly clean your jewellery with a special cloth (available free with your purchase).
We recommend showering with your jewellery on. Soapy running water keeps the jewellery clean and prevents it from blackening.
However, swimming in the sea or a swimming pool with your jewellery on is not recommended. Salt water and chlorine can damage silver.
Keeping your jewellery in a jewellery box, a closed drawer or a small bag will keep it from blackening and prevent it from getting scratched.
Keep jewellery away from chemical substances (including lotions and perfumes) that can damage silver.
