Material & maintenance

The 'silver' jewelry is made of Sterling Silver, or 925 silver. Pure silver is too soft to make jewelry, so the pure silver is mixed with a small amount of other material to make it stronger. Sterling silver consists largely of silver (92.5%), the other 7.5% consists of other materials.
