Silver Jewelry Information

Back Silver has been seen as a symbol throughout history. Classically, gold is seen as the symbol of the sun, silver the moon. Silver is one of the first metals to be used by humans. Silver has been used in jewelry since the ancient Byzantine, Phoenician and Egyptian empires. The lustrous white color and malleability of this precious metal, and its widespread distribution have made silver a practical choice for jewelry adornment in diverse cultures. Silver is harder than gold, but softer than copper. It can be hammered into remarkably thin sheets and drawn into wire finer than human hair. Pure silver is too soft for normal use and is consequently mixed with other metals; usually copper, to create a harder alloy.
