Silver Jewelry has been used since ancient times as wearing ,showing
status in the community and today
silver is as popular as ever due to rising cost of gold, which is now expensive.
When silver was mined in ancient times they could melt
silver and make silver jewelry a s the silver is flexible mineral to work with.
Some these jewelry pieces were pure
silver as the mines were easy to get to and workers did not have to go deep
underground like today
Today silver is set to industry standard of 925 or stamped
hallmark 925 as this means the silver is 92 5 purer silver as if 1005 silver it
is not a s strong.
You will note that some silver is more shinny than others,
this is due to the silver is silver plated.
Unfortunately some countries do not keep to this standard
and lot silver form china today is not silver just stamped. If you look closely
you can see stainless steel look even if plated and that tell you that zero silver in this setting,
and w e have seen many jewelry piece s like this
