Sterling silver or other?

Postby JanX » Sun Jan 10, 2010 2:09 pm

I have a new jewellery range in mind :wink: I can get the materials in sterling silver and also in silver coloured metal (mostly aluminium with silver plated bits)

I was wondering what the general preference would be. For a necklace the price I would charge for one made from Sterling Silver would be approx £25, and from other silver coloured metal would be approx £15.

Would you rather pay the extra for the sterling silver?

any comments and thoughts appreciated

I would always buy the sterling silver as silver plated seems to tarnish quicker for me

I wouldn't mind what it's made of as long as it isn't plated, because anything I get that's plated always looks pretty rubbish after a while :oops:, I would prefer to spend extra and have it last :D

I would pay extra for the silver, but mostly because other metals (though not gold) react with my skin...

oohhh, looks like sterling is a clear winner so far then!

I was kind of hoping that would be the case as I prefer working with sterling :wink:

Keep the votes/comments coming though please
