Sterling silver is most popular in its use with jewelry, but you may recognize it in other household items such as embellishments on serving dishes, sculptures, and picture frames. Holly Yashi uses only the highest quality, 925 (92.5%) sterling silver, a standard for the jewelry industry.
Tarnishing, or a darkening of the metal's surface, is more likely to occur when the silver is not used frequently. What a good excuse to keep wearing your favorite sterling silver Holly Yashi jewelry! To minimize tarnish, store your jewelry in a dry area. Wiping off your sterling silver jewelry after you wear it will get rid of any lotion, perfumes, or makeup that may have transferred from your skin, and will help to prevent tarnishing.
