Buying precious metals like gold, silver, and titanium has always been associated with luxury and wealth. However, you can’t always buy jewelry that features these expensive metals. The volatility in the prices of silver in the market has resembled a roller coaster ride in the recent past, in particular. And as a result, jewelry that features precious metals has become a tad too expensive especially for buyers who are looking for options that they can pair with everyday wear.
Today, people are more eager to embrace a broader range of fashion trends, including experimenting with different materials and colors. In the recent past, we have seen female customers gravitating towards buying stainless steel jewelry, sterling silver rings, pendants with gemstones, and many other styles. This suits their pockets while making a bold and distinctive statement.
Of all the materials that are used in jewelry making, sterling silver is perhaps the most popular choice among women. But is sterling silver even real silver? That is a question a lot of customers ask us before making that big buying decision. And the answer to that is… yes! Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metal alloys (usually copper).
If you think sterling silver is just another cheap alternative to white gold or pure silver, you are grossly mistaken. The fact is that sterling silver jewelry is trending across the world because it is made using 92.5% fine silver and mimics the look of pure silver jewelry without compromising on any aspect.
Modern jewelry brands, designers, and customers are flocking to this noble metal because of the following reasons:
- Sterling silver jewelry is ultra-durable
Sterling silver jewelry can last you a lifetime if you ensure proper upkeep and regular maintenance. In fact, the reason for incorporating alloys like copper in the mix is that it lends additional strength and durability to the jewelry piece. This sturdiness factor makes sterling silver jewelry the perfect choice for everyday wear.
- It is a trend that is here to stay
Most women know that the pace of fast-fashion jewelry trends can be dizzying. Trends come and go, and some of them change so quickly that it is incredible to stay on top of what is happening in the world of jewelry. Luckily, sterling silver’s popularity is almost always guaranteed. The latest styles in jewelry will always feature sterling silver, even if the designs change.
- Sterling silver is hypoallergenic
It is possible to have an allergic reaction to jewelry made out of cheap nickel, brass, or other base metals. Sterling silver jewelry, however, contains no metal additions that can cause an allergic reaction on your skin. This is especially important for accessories like earrings, rings, and chains, which are in direct and constant contact with your skin. For people who have sensitive skin, sterling silver is a great choice as the base metal for their jewelry. After all, you don’t want your jewelry to start becoming a nuisance and cause skin damage, do you?
- It is versatile
Sterling silver jewelry works like a charm, no matter what the occasion. Putting together an ensemble for the Met Gala? Sterling silver it is. Dressing up for a casual dinner date? Go for sterling silver accessories. Attending a PTA meeting? Sterling silver can add a classy touch to your look. With sterling silver, you don’t have to worry that your new jewelry won’t match your outfits. At P&K Jewelry, our collection includes versatile sterling silver jewelry that pairs well with all types of clothes and accessories.
- It is easily customizable
Customers can customize their sterling silver jewelry for men and women based on their personal preferences and tastes. You can customize your sterling silver jewelry accessories as an alphabet, symbol, name, etc. This kind of personalization may not be possible with some other metals. Be it a sterling silver pendant, chain, band, earring, or ring, you have ample scope to customize your jewelry according to your needs.
- It is easy to maintain
As gorgeous as silver is, many women have dodged it at some point in life for one reason alone, which is the fear of the jewelry getting tarnished. It is heartbreaking to see your favorite piece of jewelry suddenly look filthy or discolored after sitting in a jewelry box for too long or exposure to natural elements. Silver can tarnish with time, especially if it is worn only occasionally. But that is not the case with sterling silver. In fact, the natural oils on your skin actually “clean” the metal, so you don’t have to worry about the jewelry getting or looking dirty. Even if your sterling silver jewelry dulls over a period of time, you can restore its original shine and sparkle quickly. Cleaning your jewelry with varnish and a fresh cloth will get the silver sparkling before you know it. And if you think it needs professional attention, your nearest jeweler will be happy to clean it for you for a nominal fee.
- Sterling silver also has multiple health benefits
It is said that sterling silver has several health benefits. Contact with this metal can improve your mood and elevate body heat, thus making it a wellness jewelry piece. Silver has properties that involve offsetting electrical disturbances and the metal can also help with your blood circulation and body heat regulation.
