Can wedding rings be silver?
Silver is a popular choice for wedding rings because it polishes to a beautiful mirror finish and has one of the whitest and most reflective surfaces of metals. Another reason why silver is a favourite choice for jewellery is that it costs less than other metals – it is more abundant in nature and is easy to shape.
Why is silver not used for engagement rings?
The biggest problem with the sterling silver used in most jewelry, including engagement rings, is tarnishing. If jewelry is worn regularly, tarnishing will occur much more slowly.
Can you shower with sterling silver?
Though showering with sterling silver jewelry on should not harm the metal, there is a good chance that it could induce tarnishing. Waters that contain chlorine, salts, or harsh chemicals will affect the look of your sterling silver. We encourage our customers to remove your sterling silver before showering.
Should engagement rings be silver or gold?
Silver is a natural, white precious metal. However, while it is very affordable, silver is not suited to engagement rings because it is a very soft metal that bends out of shape easily. Silver is more suited to fashion jewellery that you wear occasionally.
