Silver Plated Jewellery, 5Xtra, Unusual, Handmade and One Of A Kind

Silver plated jewellery can be a good choice when you want the look of silver but not the expense of the solid metal. To go with a particular outfit or for a one off occasion it can often be the best value buy. As with most other things in life silver plate comes in different qualities. The thickness of the plate will determine how long an item keeps looking good. Usually thickness of the silver plate varies between 1 and 5 microns. Very roughly it will wear out by one micron a year so very cheap silver plate will only look at its best for a very short time. Five micron silver plated jewellery such as 5Xtra should be good for 4-5years.
