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 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 grown. 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.

    I bought two of these to give as Christmas gifts for my nieces. I am pleased with the quality of this item and the great price. The packaging is really nice and I'm planning to slip these under the tree without further wrapping.

    I recently got this as a gift for my (future) mother-in-law along with several other pieces of jewelry. Considering how inexpensive it was, I was expecting something of low quality - but I was pleasantly surprised to get a very attractive and high quality pendant! I am contemplating now buying one for myself!

    Unacceptable quality of workmenship. Even for $20.
    Pros:
    Nice blue box, unmarked.
    Frontal view of pendant is nice and shiny, just as pictured.
    Cons:
    Easily noticible mold line with ugly blotches along the entire inside circumference of the pendant.
    Thin chain, not shiny, not glamorous.
    It resembles a $100 Tiffany's pendant chain but the blotchy mold line really junks this other wise decent pendant. I decided not to give this gift so it's just collecting dust now. I can't return it because it says you need a certificate of appraisal or something.

    My boyfriend is a PHD student and therefore on a tight budget, but he really wanted to buy me something nice for valentine's day. So I picked out this necklace seeing that it was so inexpensive and it looked pretty cute. For the price, I was expecting some cheesy light-weight pendant, but to my surprise this item was MUCH more than I expected. It's a beautiful simple, yet sweet, necklace with nice packaging...no tangling whatsoever...came nicely out of the blue velvet drawstring bag. Great Gift.

    I ordered this product about a month ago, it took forever to arrive, and when it did it was all tangled up into a little ball. The chain was very poor quality and when I tried to untangle it, it never really straightned out. Don't order this!!!

    This piece is a Tiffany & Co. knock-off. The original costs well over $100, so if you are a lover of Tiffany yet can't find it in your budget, I'd say go with this piece! There are also others here at Amazon that are highly satisfactory. Just compare them with the Tiffany website!

    This necklace is just so beautiful. The quality for this price is amazing. I wanted it the moment I saw it because it looks so graceful and classic. I wasn't disappointed at all when I got the pendant. When it came, the necklace itself was a bit tangled so it took a while to untangle it, but that didn't leave any damage on the product. The heart is genuine sterling silver and you can feel the weight of it, making you realize the high quality of this pendant. The chain itself is nice and light,and feels good when you wear it. I would definitely recommend bying this pendant, for yourself and anyone you love!!
