TERMS OF SERVICE
Prices are subject to change because foreign currencies and precious metals markets fluctuate daily. This means that prices for precious metal bails and setting findings fluctuate daily as well. Although our prices reflect both metal content and manufacturing labour costs, the price fluctuations apply mainly to the metal content.
Real sterling silver changes colour over time. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver and the other 7.5% is an alloy. The alloy can oxidize when in contact with your skin or with the air. Therefore, the alloy component can discolour and/or tarnish, turning your sterling silver brownish (tarnished) or grey-black (oxidized). But with a quick wipe with a silver cleaning soft cloth this should improve the look.
Pure gold is 24 karats and consists of 100% gold. 18 karat gold consists of 75% gold and 25% other metal alloys. The following chart shows more details about various karats gold.
