Can silver jewelry cause allergies or skin irritation?
Some people may develop an allergic reaction or skin irritation when wearing silver jewelry, due to factors such as perspiration and exposure to moisture. However, most people do not experience these problems when wearing sterling silver jewelry, as it contains a very small percentage of metals other than pure silver.

What is the difference between 18 karat gold and 9 karat gold?
18-karat gold and 9-karat gold differ in composition in terms of the amount of pure gold and other metals. 18-carat gold (or 750) is made up of 75% pure gold and the remaining 25% of other metals such as copper, silver or palladium, which are added to give the gold greater hardness and resistance. 9 karat (or 375) gold contains only 37.5% pure gold and 62.5% other metals. As a result, 18-karat gold is generally considered more valuable and of higher quality than 9-karat gold, as it contains more pure gold and has a deeper, more brilliant color. However, 9 karat gold is more resistant to scratches and corrosion than 18 karat gold, and it is also more affordable and accessible to the jewelry market. Choosing between 18 karat gold and 9 karat gold depends on personal preference, budget, and the intended use of the jewelry.
