Our silver collection is made from solid sterling silver, also known as 925 Silver. Unlike brass or other non-precious metal base items, products made from pure sterling silver are less likely to cause allergic reactions because it only contains 7.5% of metal-alloy, which are used to strengthen the silver. Sterling silver will naturally tarnish over time, simply clean them with a mixture of mild soap and lukewarm water or toothpaste to give them back the shine!
