What makes silver jewellery so special from any other jewellery? What sets it apart from other jewellery with a different metallic substance as its base?
Well for one, silver is a an amazing multifaceted metallic substance. It’s chemical symbol is “AG” which is derived from the-Indo European root word “arg” which means “grey” or “shiny buy gold in abu dhabi“. Silver metal has the durability and strength, as well as the brilliance and lustre and the affordability and economy that other metallic substances do not possess. For thousands of years, silver has been valued by many different people as a precious metal and used for currency coins. It was even reputed to have a scientific health benefit that many people do not know about, such as increasing your blood circulation and the prevention of muscle pains.
Secondly, as a metallic base, it complements all kind of stones whether it be precious, semi-precious, or not at all precious! All kinds of stones such as diamonds, emeralds, turquoise, opal, ruby, or crystals – you can name it and I bet you will be able to place it as a part of silver jewellery and the ultimate outcome would still be the same – elegant and sophisticated.
Designers also love to create jewellery based on silver because the silver metal is quite malleable and can easily be fashioned and moulded into different styles of necklaces, bangles and bracelets, rings and earrings without it losing any of its charm and radiance.
Thirdly, as to prove its versatility, silver jewellery can now have variety of textures and feels that are good for colour combinations. It can have a matte or dull look, a chrome or shiny look, an oxidized or a combination of any and still maintain its elegance and sophistication.
