About Sterling Silver Rings

Sterling silver is a neutral tone that complements all outfit styles. Sterling silver rings are a popular choice for their versatile and durable nature since pure silver is simply too soft to be worn. Sterling silver easily molds into various ring designs, and is perhaps the most inexpensive type of precious metal available. This makes sterling silver engagement rings a popular choice, and offers you the most bang for your buck in terms of value. Find a large inventory on eBay. Sterling silver comes with a minimum finesse of 925, which means that the alloy contains 92.5 percent silver, and 7.5 percent of other metals, like copper. 925 sterling silver rings have "925" engraved along the band. Since sterling silver is incredibly durable, it is difficult to tarnish and scratch in comparison to gold. Avoid exposing sterling silver rings to unnecessary chemicals, such as bleach or ammonia, by removing any jewelry that you are wearing when cleaning. Small scratches and tarnishing on the sterling silver can be easily cleaned with baking soda, boiling water, and a microfiber cloth.
