Own sterling silver earrings? -Why that black gunk appears on your jewellery is right here.
Here is the science bit. Oxidation is a chemical reaction. Silver plated jewellery contains a high copper content. TUT earrings are available to custom in non-tarnish silver plated and sterling silver metal wire. Plated wire has a copper core. When copper comes in contact with moisture and humidity in the air and from your skin – causes the chemical reaction. Over time, the result of the reaction is that green gunky build up. Another and probably the most famous example of this process is the Statue of Liberty. Oxidation is why the babe is green.
