It is no secret that we have been obsessed with Silver Jewelry - and this obsession is what fuels us to create more and more designs at Quirksmith. We genuinely wanted our love for Silver Jewelry to reach more people and so - resolved with helping people with their Silver Jewelry Shopping and Care - we asked you all to share your questions about shopping Silver Jewelry online. We wouldn't have been more glad to be inundated with plentiful and purposeful questions - and thoroughly enjoyed putting together this Q&A guide for all of you:
Are Sterling Silver & 92.5 Silver the same?
