Silver is a classic choice when it comes to selecting jewellery. It goes with everything and is a more affordable option than gold, but it still looks beautiful.
Pure silver is too soft to work as jewellery, so it is usually combined with copper to create a stronger metal. This then becomes sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. This balance ensures that the silver is strong but still holds its colour and shine.
Throughout history, silver has been used for a wide variety of reasons including displaying wealth and power, to ward off evil and sickness and to improve circulation. It’s said to even provide a glimpse into your own health. For example, if your silver jewellery turns blue, it could indicate high levels of sodium.
