Silver jewelry has been used in many different cultures' traditional pieces of jewelry for centuries. Silver jewelry is made from a silver alloy, which is pure silver mixed with other metals.

History Of Silver Jewelry

Silver is a very popular jewelry metal. In fact, it is the world's most commonly used metal for jewelry. It is prevalent not only for its color and low cost, but also for its durability. For thousands of years, silver has been used to make jewelry. Around 2500 BC, the first silver jewelry was discovered in Crete, Greece. It was made from silver coins and other metal scraps. The earliest examples were intricately designed necklaces and bracelets made by hammering a piece of silver over a mold until it became thin enough to be worn as jewelry.

What is sterling silver?

Sterling silver is a silver with a purity level of 92.5%. It is made up of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, which prevents tarnish and corrosion over time. This is due to its ability to be more resistant to oxygen in the air or water than other metals. This mixture is then heated to achieve the desired shape and size before being cooled by water or air and polished with an abrasive material such as pumice stone or diamond paste.

The term "sterling" is derived from the English town of Sterling, which was known for its silversmiths, and the name has become synonymous with high-quality silver products. Sterling silver was first coined in 1837 by silversmith William H. Rogers in order to distinguish it from the relatively low quality silver that was being used at the time, which was primarily made up of various alloys with a purity ranging from 60-90%.

Why should you wear silver jewelry? 

Known as a symbol of wealth, prosperity, and purity, silver jewelry is thought to provide the wearer with both physical and spiritual benefits. Here are some of the reasons why you should wear silver jewelry. 

The health benefits: 

Silver has a longstanding history in antibiotics and sterilization. It has an established track record as a potent antimicrobial agent that fights infection and aids in cold and flu prevention, wound healing, and other applications. It also aids in the regulation of internal heat and circulation.Silver is also said to keep our blood vessels elastic, allowing it to aid in bone formation and healing, as well as skin maintenance and repair. Wearers of silver jewelry report significant increases in energy and more balanced moods. Silver jewelry can help you relax if you are stressed or anxious. It also appears to counteract external electrical disturbances while increasing blood flow. Immunity is boosted by circulation.

Silver can also help us avoid potentially toxic substances because, as a metal, it reacts and changes color when it comes into contact with many other chemical compounds that are known toxins.

The spiritual benefits: 

Silver jewelry has numerous spiritual benefits; it may be just what you need to clear your life of negative energy and drama. It's also worth noting that silver is a very strong spiritual metal and astral conductor. It is also said to bring not only patience and perseverance, but also balance and protection. Silver is widely used in combination with other gemstones due to its ability to attract and retain the qualities of those gemstones.

Silver is known to carry lunar energies, especially during new and full moons, and because silver is reflective, the moon reflects sunlight, as does whoever wears it. For your protection and security, silver will reflect negativity away from you.

Silver is worn to provide a sense of security. Many people believe that wearing silver keeps evil spirits away from their bodies. Some people believe that wearing silver will keep them healthy and young for a long time.
