Although we are all big fans of gold, we actually are not wearing pure gold. Pure gold (24k) is very soft, and therefore has to be alloyed with base metals to achieve the right properties. When we are wearing gold, we are actually wearing gold mixed with copper, zinc, silver, etc. If we are wearing rose gold, we are actually wearing gold that is mixed with a high percentage of copper. White gold contains nickel, zinc, and copper. So actually, we are not fully wearing pure gold unless we are wearing 24k gold.
When you are looking to get gold priced, make sure you look at the karat weight (how pure the gold is) and the careful design of the jewelry. And if you want to have money well spent, make sure you take good care of the gold by keeping it away from chemicals that make cause abrasion. For example, if you want to clean your gold, take a very soft brush and wash the gold with a very sensitive soap. This will keep the gold from rusting.
Just like pure gold, fine silver is essentially a very soft metal. It is combined with other metals to make it more useful. For example, sterling silver is made of copper and silver. Unlike gold, silver is not measured by its purity but by its craft. Depending on the amount of labor that was taken to make the decision and the precision of the design, silver is priced more on its intricacy than on its purity. Actually, silver is easiest to handle when it is mixed with copper. You can judge if silver is real by looking at the quality mark which shows the content of the jewelry. It is also accompanied by a trademark from the craftsman.
As for keeping the silver clean, make sure it is both wrapped in a soft cloth and stored in an isolated area where it can’t be scratched. Keep it away from heavy chemicals, and also do not expose it to chlorine. It can easily be damaged.
Your silver must also be cleaned regularly by a solution made to specifically clean silver.crack
