Why Buy Silver Jewellery?
Silver has a reasonable price and is comparatively easily availability. It is one of the most preferred metals for jewellery-making. Because of its fairly inexpensive pricing, it’s extremely easy to find varieties in the types of jewellery, as well as in the types of designs. Your imagination is probably the limit. That’s how many different models and types of silver jewellery you will find.
Due to its soothing silver colour, most people prefer silver jewellery to the more yellowish gold jewellery. Another reason for choosing silver over gold is the price difference. Although everyone wants to have at least some gold jewellery on them, there is a limit to their spending power. This makes people buy cheaper silver jewellery to satisfy their appetite for jewellery.
The most common types of silver jewels are rings, chains earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets. Silver jewels make a person look more elegant. Even if the size of the jewellery is big, it still makes you look elegant and the jewellery will gel well with all attires and will suit all occasions.
Amongst all metals, silver is one of the finer metals. Any metal in its utmost purity is malleable and is not good for jewellery making. To make it sturdy and long-lasting, the pure metal will need to be mixed with one or many metals to make the metal suitable for jewellery making. The same happens with Silver as well. Silver is also mixed with other metals in very small quantities to make it sturdy and fit for making them into fine jewellery.
One such alloy is ‘Sterling silver,’ which has about 93% silver and 7% copper. This combination works very well for making fine jewellery. The Sterling silver alloy is also well-known for being able to hold diamonds and, therefore, a lot of people buy diamond studded silver jewellery instead of diamond studded gold jewellery to beat the costs associated with gold. As a result silver jewellery is becoming more and more popular. Nowadays people prefer white gold to yellow gold because of the colour attractiveness factor of white gold. There’s hardly any difference between silver and white gold jewellery in terms of looks, so one can easily be replaced by the other. If, affordability is an important factor for you, fret not! A piece of silver jewellery can give you the same feeling as that of wearing a piece of jewellery made from white gold.
