How long does sterling silver jewelry last? What are some of its pros and cons?
The best way to make sure sterling silver will last more than half a year to a year is to store it well. Make sure you place your piece in a well sealed (oxygen tight) container away from the sun. This prevents the sterling silver from oxidizing (and tarnishing). Pros: Silver has a great sheen, looks stunning, cost effective (compared to gold, white gold) and matches a lot of skin types. Cons: It will tarnish. If you don’t want tarnishing, try white gold (but it’ll cost you!). For more: http://www.stonesandfindings.com/jewelry-making-articles/silver
