A Note About Silver

A Note About Silver
This is a bit of information regarding most of the Jewelry that is for sale in my little shop...I will always list the Metal Components that make up a piece and oftentimes I will list items that are made from ‘Tibetan Silver’ or ‘925 Sterling Silver’. I would just like to clarify exactly what these are...925 Sterling Silver is comprised of 92.5% Silver and the remaining amount is Copper. Copper is often added to help make the alloy more malleable. Tibetan Silver is more of a mix of alloys that include Silver, Zinc, Copper and Tin which is considered less expensive but yet is able to create beautiful pieces of jewelry. If you have any Skin Sensitivities just please be aware most of these items ARE NOT Precious in any way...They are considered Fashion or Statement Pieces. I’ve been working with jewelry for years and am fortunate not to have any issues...but just wanted to kind of FYI :) I hope you enjoy the pieces whether they are ‘precious’ or not...personally I think they are still pretty cool looking!
