TierraCast uses fine silver and gold on its plated parts. The composition of the precious metal plate provides the warm white color that is a good match with other silver components and the perfect tone match with gold. Just like its cousin sterling silver, fine silver will tarnish during common use and will readily do so if subjected to harsh conditions, like swimming pools, hair and body sprays etc. Tarnish is thin layer of oxidized metal on the surface and does not penetrate the item. On sterling silver this layer is usually grey to bluish black in color; on fine silver the color is a lighter tan color; both can be removed by various means. See Caring for Your Jewellery.
