Hiya – I used to work in Jewellery.  Sterling silver is a good every day option as it is quite hardwearing, however it does discolour with the oxides in the air around us.  If you are having sterling silver you will need to clean it regularly and polish it with silver polish and a silver cloth.  Also although it is quite hardwearing it will scratch just like any other metal, so you may want to consider having it buffed every few years to keep it shiny.

Lastly, be careful if you have a gold/white gold engagement band – silver is a tougher metal and so can erode other metals worn with it.

Hope this helps and good luck!x

I have two vintage sterling rings. They cleaned up very well and have a beautiful lustre, but I noticed that they get scratched far more easily than my gold jewelry. If you’re willing to address the cleaning and scratching issues, it’s definitely an option. 🙂
