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.
A Diamond Wedding Ring
A diamond solitaire wedding ring gives the luster and glamour to the deep feeling of love. However, a couple should carefully select the ring as its many aspects should be first explored in order to buy a fitting and affordable one for the occasion. To highlight the glitter of diamonds on the top of the ring, ensure that the metal band is comparatively less gleaming and so a white metal will be perfect.
You must extensively shop around for a suitable ring as you have to keep the metal band also in mind. Diamonds have the glitter to attract women and so are the wedding rings as they symbolize the eternal love the man and his woman have for each other. Do not rush to the jeweler’s shop to buy diamond solitaire wedding rings. For instance, bezel settings nestles the smaller diamond to highlight it.
