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.

hypoallergenic which is great because I am allergic to cheap metal chains. I would recommend this to anyone who is allergic to metal. So far I have not had any problems with being allergic to the chain. I am planning on ordering another one in a longer length. I purchased the 20" one. Also has a nice lobster claw. One of the best chains I have purchased on-line.
My wife has matched it up with a few of the "offending" pendants and pronounced this as being "perfect!" Looking at it with the pendants, I can see that, indeed, it is perfect. The thickness is definitely appropriate for those more heavier of pendants and the chain itself has a very nice look to it. As a stand along chain, this is also quite nice although that certainly wasn't the reason I bought it.
I'm really happy with this chain. The clasp is easy to maneuver and open, even with my wife's arthritic hands. (That is ALWAYS a plus!)

It is just what I have been wanting, It is not "shiny" so it looks good with my dark pendants.Published 10 days ago by Jeanne
Really pretty. If you don't have someone to help you with the closure, it's very tiny and hard to do alone or with long fingernails. I love the chain.Published 2 months ago by Julie Ann Collins
