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.

Meaning and Symbolism
The significance of jade is unparalleled in precious stones. In Chinese culture, jade symbolizes five virtues: righteousness, wisdom, bravery, honesty, and purity. In much of the world, jade is historically thought to attract love, promoting fidelity and generosity. This beautiful opaque green stone is connected to nobility and wealth, as well as balance, stability and peace.
Origins and History
Jade is a metamorphic stone composed of several silicate materials, as well as iron. The higher the iron content, the deeper the green color of the jade. Archeological findings have confirmed that this ornamental rock has been mined since 4000 BC near Inner Mongolia. Having a hardness like that of steel, jade cannot be carved or cut with metal tools but must be slowly ground or sawed with an abrasive paste until the desired shape is achieved.
Fun Facts about Jade
Chinese warriors once wore jade as pendants or embedded in their armor. They believed it made them indestructible in battle. A round flat piece of jade was embedded in the back of the medals distributed at the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Jade was considered the 'imperial gem' throughout Chinese history, and the stone was used to create ceremonial objects, art, and even royal burial suits, in addition to beautiful jewelry.
