Silver plated copper jewellery is made by coating a layer of silver on top of a copper base. This type of jewellery is popular because it combines the beauty and shine of silver with the durability and affordability of copper. However, it is important to note that the silver plating on copper jewellery may wear off over time due to regular use and exposure to moisture, air, and other environmental factors. This can lead to a tarnished appearance, which may require regular cleaning and polishing to maintain its shine. To care for silver plated copper jewellery, it is recommended to keep it dry and avoid exposure to harsh chemicals, such as perfumes, hairsprays, and cleaning products. It is also important to store the jewellery in a dry, cool place when not in use. When cleaning silver plated copper jewellery, use a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner specifically designed for silver. Avoid using abrasive materials, such as steel wool or scrub brushes, as these can scratch the surface and damage the silver plating. Overall, silver plated copper jewellery can be a great option for those looking for affordable, stylish pieces with a silver-like shine. However, it is important to take proper care of the jewellery to ensure it maintains its beauty and durability over time.
