Any plating (whether it is gold, rose gold, rhodium or other) will last based on two things: 1) the ‘thickness’ of the plating and 2) the usage and care given by the owner. Flash plating is a very thin layer; whereas micron plating provides a heavier layer and therefore will last longer. The best way to keep your plated jewellery looking like new is to ensure you are following the care instructions. Do not expose the jewellery to high heat, excessive moisture or chemicals (including perfumes) and make sure to store it in airtight bags while not wearing it.
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other materials such as copper. On the other hand, pure silver, also termed as fine silver, consists of 99.9% pure silver. Due to its high durability, sterling silver is the industry standard highest quality of silver used for making jewellery.
