Have seen a two georgous rings one is sterling silver (is this property silver?) the other is titanium which would be the better of the two?

sterling silver has a small amount of another metal in it (usually copper) to make it harder.
Pure silver is quite soft..
Titanium is much much harder than silver....

Depends what you like!

Hi marshall! I'm a manager of a jewellers. Titanium is brilliant if you have any allergic reactions to any metals, this you won't have any trouble with. It's very soft & lightweight & may scrath easily. Sterling silver very nice but tarnishes & needs cleaning regularly... Choice is yours. HTH
