What is Silver?
Sterling silver is 92.5% silver and is sometimes referred to as pure silver. Sterling silver will tarnish over time but with care and regular cleaning can be restored to its good as new sparkling condition. The remaining 7.5% is usually copper but can be other metal and is used to give this precious metal strength and durability.
Generally, the higher the silver content the brighter or whiter the metal but beware of antiquing effects that can make a piece of sterling silver jewellery or decorative silverware look dark. Silver which is 99.9% silver is too soft to be practical for most day to day uses. Do not use tissue or anything other than a jewellery cleaning cloth to polish your jewellery as unseen tiny hard fibers will scratch the surface.
Gemstone is desirable for its beauty
A gemstone is the naturally occurring crystalline form of a mineral. Gemstone is desirable for its beauty. It is valuable in rarity. A gemstone or gem also called a precious or semi-precious stone is a piece of attractive mineral, when cut and polished it is used to make jewellery or other adornments. Although some gemstone varieties have been treasured since before history began and others were only discovered recently.
Gemstone is durable enough to be enjoyed for generations. However certain rocks, such as lapis-lazuli and organic materials are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.
