Will sterling silver earrings rust?

Sterling silver is made from the highest quality standards and has merely 7.5 per cent of copper used to form an alloy. Some of these metals may react with metal and impact the shine and quality of the jewellery. In certain cases, an exposed piece of silver jewellery may develop rust and tarnish. Another leading cause of the same is the presence of moisture in the air. So, if you accidentally wear the sterling silver jewellery to the shower, it is recommended to ensure that you quickly dry it off using a cotton cloth.
