but keep in mind that colors can look different on different monitors and other devices.

*** WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ALPACA AND SILVER JEWELRY?
One of the biggest differences is that Alpaca silver actually contains no silver. It is actually made of an alloy, which imitates sterling silver.
The non-precious metal alloy is typically made of zinc, copper, and nickel, though there are many versions of Alpaca silver that are now being made with iron instead of nickel. This is due, in large part, to many people being allergic to nickel.

Alpaca Silver communly composition:
60 percent copper
20 percent nickel (or iron)
20 percent zinc

Sterling silver, on the other hand, contains at least 92.5 percent of actual silver, but it usually also contains other metals as jewelry and tableware cannot contain 100 percent silver since it does not have a solid state.
Another difference is that Alpaca silver can be less expensive than sterling silver and will still look shiny and beautiful. This is mainly due to the fact that Alpaca silver does not contain silver which is considered a valuable metal.
One other difference between Alpaca and sterling silver is that Alpaca silver can tarnish quicker than sterling silver if not cared for properly. This makes it important to understand the qualities of this metal and to know how to keep it looking beautiful.

ALPACA SILVER TARNISH FREE
If you purchase a piece of jewelry that uses Alpaca silver and it comes to you tarnished, you may be upset and angry; however, there is no need to get all upset because it is easy to clean.
First, you can try using a silver cleaning cloth. This generally removes most tarnish, but if it is extreme or severe, you may need to actually wash the Alpaca silver. To do this, mix one or two drops of dishwashing soap with one or two drops of lemon juice and warm water. Soak the jewelry in the mixture for only two minutes (or less). Lay it flat on a clean towel to dry.
You may also choose to purchase special jewelry cleaner for your Alpaca silver. Many people prefer this method as they are worried about the acidic nature of lemon juice.

TO STORE ALPACA SILVER
When you are not wearing your Alpaca silver, it should be stored separately from all other jewelry, even other Alpaca silver pieces. Place it in a jeweler's bag or in a plastic baggie, and seal it tightly to prevent air from touching the silver.
Before putting on Alpaca silver jewelry, you should take your shower, dry off, and put on any makeup, moisturizer, or perfume. Once your body is dry again, you can put on your jewelry. Moisture can damage the Alpaca silver jewelry, making it tarnish quicker.
It may also be helpful to take off your Alpaca jewelry when you get home from errands, work, or school, so you do not forget and take a shower or bath, though it is up to you.
