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.

The print is not only an attractive font but easy to read even from afar. I've gotten several compliments on it from strangers already. I actually have bad eyesight and I can read it just fine, and if strangers can tell what it says when we shake hands or exchange items at a glance... that seems easy to read to me so other reviews saying it's too small are strange to me.
Update: While I still love the look of this ring, it causes an allergic reaction if I wear it longer than a couple of hours now. I'm not allergic to sterling silver, so I can only assume this ring to not be true .925 silver as advertised. It's probably a silver plate over a base metal. Disappointing! If you don't have metal allergies, it's still a decent ring.
I've had it for a week or two now, i've worn it to bed and in the shower, and it hasn't stained my finger.
Love it! I recommend it.
And the message is great. Set an example everyone!
