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.

From the Manufacturer
Saint Christopher is viewed by several Christian denominations as a martyr killed in the 3rd-century.
There are several legends about Saint Christopher, including the one in which he was crossing a river when a child asked to be carried across. When Christopher put the child on his shoulders he found the child was unbelievably heavy. The child, according to the legend, was Christ carrying the weight of the whole world. This was what made Christopher patron saint of travelers.
Premium Quality Silver St. Christopher Medal
This handsome piece is die-struck: an exceptional process of manufacturing that creates heirloom quality jewelry. The process starts with a sculptor hand carving the original design into a block of steel called a die. The die is then placed in a high tonnage press to transfer the detail from the original carving in the die on to a piece of softer precious metal. This process allows for maximum detail to transfer from the original work of art created by the sculptor in to the finished piece of jewelry.
Made With Pride In The U.S.A.
Special care has been taken to ensure the highest level of detail. The die-struck manufacturing, in addition to making a stronger medal, provides much more detail than conventional cast medals. The lettering is filled in with black ink for a more dramatic look, and for better readability. The back of the medal is ready for your engraving. This medal comes with a deluxe rhodium plated, stainless steel chain. Sturdy, yet elegant, this chain makes the perfect accompaniment for this stunning piece.
