What is Sterling Silver?
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. The 92.5% is why jewellery is often stamped with the numbers 925.
Why does Sterling Silver Oxidise/Tarnish?
Although sterling silver is more durable than pure silver, the additional metals in the alloy make sterling silver more prone to tarnishing.
This happens because the copper, nickel, zinc or other mixtures in sterling silver may react with oxygen and other elements in the air.

It is natural for sterling silver jewellery to tarnish, particularly if the piece is worn regularly. Tarnish can also be caused by other factors which include:
