What you need to know about Sterling Silver
This post is for all the sterling silver fans! 🙌 I don’t talk about this metal type very often, but it definitely deserves a spotlight. Sterling silver has captured the hearts of women and men for centuries. Keep reading to see why I love sterling silver. ↓↓↓
Durability + Longevity:
Did you know that sterling silver is much more durable and lightweight than pure silver? It’s composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals (usually copper). The addition of other metals enhances its strength, ensuring that your sterling silver pieces can withstand daily wear without losing their beauty. With proper care, sterling silver jewelry can last a lifetime; making it an excellent investment.
From sleek and minimalistic designs to intricate and ornate patterns, sterling silver offers a vast range of styles to suit every taste. Its neutral hue seamlessly blends with any color palette, allowing you to effortlessly incorporate sterling silver pieces into your existing jewelry collection. I love seeing the stunning sterling silver jewelry orders being shipped out from my studio. Silver pairs beautifully with birthstones, natural gems, and glass beads. Even the simple chains in sterling silver look so elegant and classy!
Affordability without Compromise:
While sterling silver possesses a luxurious allure, it remains surprisingly affordable! Compared to other precious metals, such as gold or platinum, sterling silver offers an accessible option for those seeking high-quality jewelry without breaking the bank. Its affordability allows jewelry lovers to own and enjoy a variety of pieces.
Hypoallergenic and Skin-Friendly:
Sterling silver serves as a safe and hypoallergenic choice for individuals with sensitive skin or allergies. This makes sterling silver an ideal option for those who love to adorn themselves with beautiful jewelry but need to prioritize skin comfort and well-being. Some sterling silver contains copper which is known to cause less skin irritation compared to other metals used in sterling silver. However, if you notice that your skin is beginning to show signs of irritation while wearing your sterling silver, that’s a sign that it’s ready for a cleaning.
The timeless beauty of sterling silver paired with its exceptional durability, remarkable versatility, and affordability checks the boxes for everyone young and old, male or female.
