Why is sterling silver jewellery so popular?
Apart from being the brightest of jewellery metals, it offers greater value than gold, and is therefore more accessible than other metals. Because sterling silver is more cost effective than gold, new designers can more afford to experiment with it and create new and stylish items. At The Online Jewellery Company we are constantly adding new and exciting designs to our range.
Sterling silver is easy to polish and clean and is incredibly durable. If your piece of sterling silver jewellery is subjected to wear and tear, a jeweller can file and polish the imperfections away. It’s a fantastic metal for necklaces, charms and pendants, as it doesn’t tarnish when draped against the skin.
What is sterling silver?
Sterling silver is an alloy of silver, which means it is made by combining two or more metallic elements in order to give it better strength or durability. It contains 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% other metals (usually copper). The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925. Millesimal fineness is a system of grading the purity of metal alloys by parts per thousand of pure metal in the mix.
Sterling silver is a great base for other metals
Because sterling silver is durable as well as being priced below gold, many jewellery items are made from sterling silver and then plated with white, yellow or rose gold. The beauty of these pieces is that you can purchase an amazing piece of gold jewellery without the high price tag that comes with solid gold. Ojco.com.au have a beautiful range of 18k gold plated Tomas Sabo jewellery including necklaces and earrings alongside a wide range of plated designs from jewellery makers around the world.
Sterling silver just loves precious gems
One of the most beautiful aspects of sterling silver is that its neutral tone acts as a perfect base for displaying the radiance and colour of precious gemstones.
Take for example our Danish designed sterling silver strand ring with gorgeous green peridot or our blue topaz and cubic zirconia earrings – both pieces are set into quality sterling silver, but it is the feature stone that really shines.
