When it comes to choosing a new piece of jewellery to add to your collection or to give someone as a gift, selecting the perfect colour metal can be a very difficult choice. Jewellery should always be meaningful to the wearer so that it can be worn every day and cherished for a lifetime! We love the look and versatility of silver jewellery because it suits every budget and every skin tone – but there are many other advantages to investing in beautiful sterling silver jewellery pieces…
1. It’s stylish yet affordable!
Sterling silver is the most affordable precious metal, especially when compared to white gold or platinum. Silver jewellery is timeless and effortlessly stylish and can last a life time if it is well looked after.
Whether you’re looking for a subtle everyday necklace or a more sculptural piece of jewellery, sterling silver is a popular choice for many jewellery designers. You will be able to find great quality pieces in a wide variety of designs, which are perfect if you want to keep up-to-date with the latest jewellery trends and purchase new pieces each season!
Sterling silver is the perfect affordable choice to instantly update your wardrobe with its shiny and bright lustre. For those with sensitive skin, sterling silver is hypoallergenic so it won’t cause a reaction with your skin. It is the perfect choice for a pair of everyday earrings that you can wear day and night and for rings that won’t turn your skin green! This makes it a great option for gifting friends or loved ones, because even if the recipient is sensitive to cheaper base metals, you will be able to find a silver piece of jewellery that won’t cause a reaction with common allergies.
Sterling silver jewellery is perfect for gifting because it complements every skin tone and it’s versatile enough to be layered with gold or rose gold and still look stylish. If you’re wondering whether the jewellery that you own is solid sterling silver, just look for the 925 hallmark to find out for sure.
2. It’s durable and long lasting!
Silver in its purest form can be very soft but when it has been mixed with alloys to create sterling silver it becomes highly durable. If it’s looked after correctly, silver can look as good as new for many years.
It can be handed down from generation to generation as a special family heirloom. It’s also very easy to maintain! If you wear your silver jewellery regularly, the natural oils in your skin will ensure that it keeps its original beautiful lustre.
If you haven’t worn your silver in a while and it has started to tarnish, you can either revive its shine by using a specialist silver polishing cloth or use solutions designed for this purpose. For those of you that prefer to keep your jewellery on at all times, including sleeping or working-out in the gym, silver can be worn almost all the time. However, we would recommend removing all jewellery when you’re in contact with chemicals like chlorine to ensure that your silver jewellery remains pristine.
3. It’s perfect for any occasion!
Silver jewellery suits every skin tone and will go with every kind of outfit! Whether you’re wearing a casual t shirt and jeans, in your formal workwear or hitting the town with your besties, you can rely on silver jewellery to bring a unique touch of detail to every outfit.
Silver jewellery is incredibly versatile so whether you’re looking to make a statement with your jewellery or find a sentimental everyday piece, you’ll find a wide selection from many jewellery designers and silversmiths.
No jewellery collection is complete without a go-to silver necklace that can be worn every day. Whether it portrays your star sign, birthstone or is simply a symbol that resonates with you, this piece will be your essential accessory for every outfit.
Adding key fashion jewellery pieces to your collection like a dainty choker or hoop earrings will ensure that you have eye-catching accessories to go with every look. We love the look of layered silver necklaces, so try mixing and matching your favourite pendants and chains to make a real style statement.
A silver piece of jewellery also makes a thoughtful gift for any occasion, whatever the recipients age or style! It makes a meaningful keepsake that is long lasting and reasonably priced. A silver charm bracelet is a popular gift for both adults and children. You can add new charms on each special occasion and build your life story through your bracelet!
Brides will often give their bridesmaids a meaningful piece of silver jewellery as a memorable keepsake to thank them for their help leading up to the wedding. Silver is also perfect for engraving, so you can write a special message and show your loved ones just how much they mean to you!
