Silver Jewellery - shoplivepages::jquery();?>
Silver, from the Latin word argentum, has been considered a precious metal since ancient times and is even mentioned in the book of Genesis. It is widely used in many industries around the world due to its unique properties and is considered a desirable metal for jewellery making.
Silver, also known as fine silver, consists of 99.9% silver but is generally too soft for producing functional objects. Sterling silver is more commonly used for jewellery making and is an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver, the remaining 7.5% being made up of other metals such as copper to give strength. It is also known as 925 silver.
