Jewelry items containing precious metals, such as Sterling Silver or 14K Gold will have those details specifically stated in the title/description.
All other jewelry items are made from base metal. Terms such as 'goldtone' or 'silver-colored' are simply used indicate the coloration of a piece.
Sterling Silver jewelry is also identified as 925 silver or SS.
This identification is tagged, stamped or engraved on each piece of Sterling Silver jewelry, except for the wire-wrapped pendants.
Silver (Ag) is a precious metal. Pure silver is nearly white, lustrous, soft and very flexible. It tends to oxidize easily and rapidly, reacting with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) in the air to form silver sulfide (Ag2S). This chemical reaction alters the natural color of silver to a yellowish brass color, know as tarnish. Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals, like copper. To delay and minimize the oxidative reaction, some of the higher quality Sterling Silver items we offer have a thin coat of Rhodium plating.
