Sterling Silver History

Experts believe that silver alloy, used today as sterling silver, originated in continental Europe in the 12th century. Pure silver was found to be a soft and easily damageable material. When combined with other metals, most commonly cooper, it produced a tougher material that could be heavily relied on. Throughout the next few centuries, sterling silver was used as currency and for household items. It was often used as silverware and became the material used in a proper table setting between 1840 and 1940 throughout the United States and Europe. Because of this popularity, silver companies began to grow. During this craze, companies began to experiment using sterling silver compositions in jewelry, as it was a material that was easy to mold into intricate designs and gave a luxurious look with its metallic finish. Today, sterling silver is widely used in all kinds of jewelry styles and shines as beautifully as other precious metals, with the benefit of affordable pricing.

Sterling Silver Composition

While pure silver can be combined with many different types of metals, sterling silver is created when combining pure silver with copper. Sterling silver jewelry can be composed with different amounts of copper but is most often seen with the .925 stamp, meaning that the composition is of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper. This has been found to be a good combination for maintaining the silver's durability without harming its sparkle.

Caring for Your Sterling Silver Jewelry

Silver should not come into contact with harsh household chemicals such as bleach, ammonia, or chlorine. To avoid scratches, store silver in a lined jewelry box or pouch, as it is prone to tarnish as it naturally reacts with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide in the air. Cleaning and wearing silver jewelry regularly will prevent this and help maintain its shine. Immediately upon noticing any discoloration, use a gentle polish made specifically for removing tarnish.

Metallic Chains

Metallic chains first received their popularity as a jewelry accessory during the ancient Roman times, when woman wore gold chains as necklaces. Since this time, the world of chain jewelry has advanced, becoming a popular accessory, casual or formal, for men and woman of all ages.

Chains are made from the construction of links that range in various shapes and sizes. This variety creates unique patterns that make each chain style distinct. This classic jewelry icon is available in a wide range of styles and thicknesses. Chains are available at all price points and are made out of an array of precious metal types.

Figaro Chain

Using the curb chain style to form flattened links, the Figaro chain does not have one uniformed size link. Instead, it usually has a pattern of two to three shorter links alternating with a longer link that continues throughout the entire length of the chain. The name is derived from the Italian opera The Marriage of Figaro, which was popular at the time this chain became a stylish accessory.

    I thought this chain would be more sturdy than it was. I was afraid to wear it because if I got it caught once on anything (like a collar), I was certain it would snap.

    This is a beautiful necklace for the price. I went back to read the description again because the way it sparkles, I thought it might be diamond cut. The product description is incorrect. It does not have a lobster claw clasp. Although I don't like spring ring clasps because of the length, it slips right over my head. I don't even have to fuss with the clasp. I am very happy with this purchase.

    Nice inexpensive chain - wish it lasted longer. Easy for my husband because it just fits over his head and doesn't have to use clasp.

    For years after the birth of my second child I could not wear silver. Suddenly this year I tried wearing an ametrine pendant surrounded by sterling on a silk rope. Since the sterling didn't cause a problem I decided on a silver chain to hold the pendant, but I wanted one that would hang at my heart level. I love this chain. It feels like silk against my skin.

    I bought this to wear my husbands ring on a chain. It was a good length and it feels sturdy. I'd recommend this to a friend if anywone asked me where I got it from.
