925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure Silver and 7.5% Copper. 925 Sterling Silver is water sensitive. We recommend avoiding water when wearing your piece, because over time the sterling silver will start to oxidize. The oils in your skin will help keep sterling silver from oxidizing faster.
Gold and Rose Gold Vermeil
As with Sterling Silver, Gold and Rose Gold is sensitive to water. Before exercising or showering, remove your vermeil jewellery. They can also be sensitive to chemicals that you find in soap, perfume, hairspray, make-up, nail polish remover, body oils, sun tan lotion and deodorant. We recommend keeping the jewellery away from them, and storing in a dry place when you are not wearing it.
