Beautifully crafted Silver jewellery and rings, Sterling Silver jewellery at an affordable price

Its shimmering, bright-white luster has earned it a special place in the realm of precious metals. While not as rare as gold, silver’s distinctive attributes and diverse applications contribute to its precious status. 

Sterling silver, a popular choice in the world of jewellery and silverware, can be distinguished from other metals based on several key characteristics: 

  1. Composition: 
    Sterling silver is primarily composed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, typically copper. This combination enhances its durability and strength while maintaining its silver appearance. In contrast, pure silver (fine silver) is 99.9% silver but is too soft for most practical applications. 
  2. Appearance: 
    Sterling silver exhibits a distinctive bright, white color that is highly prized for jewellery and tableware. It closely resembles the appearance of white gold or platinum, making it a more affordable alternative to these precious metals. 
  3. Tarnish Resistance: 
    While sterling silver does tarnish over time due to its copper content, it is less susceptible to tarnishing than other metals like copper or brass. Proper care, such as regular polishing and storage in airtight containers, can help mitigate tarnish. 
  4. Affordability: Compared to metals like gold or platinum, sterling silver is considerably more affordable. This makes it an accessible choice for a wide range of jewellery and decorative items. 
  5. Durability: Sterling silver is durable and suitable for everyday wear in jewellery. However, it is not as durable as metals like titanium or stainless steel, which are highly resistant to scratches and wear. 
  6. Hypoallergenic Properties: 
    Some people may be allergic to certain metals, like nickel, commonly found in some alloys. Sterling silver, with its lower alloy content, is often considered hypoallergenic and less likely to cause skin reactions. 
  7. Versatility: 
    Sterling silver is a versatile metal used in a variety of applications, from rings and necklaces to cutlery and decorative pieces. Its malleability allows for intricate designs and artistic creativity. In summary, sterling silver is a popular choice for its aesthetic appeal, affordability, and versatility. Its unique composition and characteristics set it apart from other metals like gold, platinum, and base metals, making it a cherished material in the world of jewellery and silverware.

“Mike designed my engagement ring with my partner (which I love) so we used him again for my wedding band. The service was incredible – he even made up a mock wedding band for me so I could test it for a few weeks. Mike was super helpful and prompt with his work and communication. I would highly recommend!”
