Classic silver garments made of 925 sterling silver have light color and smooth surface. Silver garments are prone to tarnish, and the easiest way to prevent it is to wear your silver jewelry often. This way your silver jewelry will be constantly polished with your natural body oils and stay bright for many years. In case you haven’t worn your silver jewelry for a long time and it became darker, it’s very easy to get rid of tarnish using special solutions, which you can find in stores. If your silver garment is embellished with gemstones, then make sure that the solution doesn’t get on the stones as it can damage the gemstone, washing off their shine and brightness. It can also loosen the adhesive, which was used to secure the stones in the garment.
18 karat gold plated garments have distinctive bright yellow gold color. Gold plating means that the garment is made of 925 sterling silver and is coated in gold. 18 karat gold indicates how much gold there is the plating, in this case it’s 58.3% pure gold (18 part of pure gold and 10 parts of some other metal, which is needed to make gold more durable).
Rhodium plating is applied to silver in order to give a distinctive dark shade. Rhodium makes the garment very durable and resistant to damages. Rhodium plated silver jewelry is made of 925 sterling silver and coated in a thin layer of rhodium.
