The Historical Price of Silver
Sterling silver has been used since humanity’s earliest days as a means of barter and trade. Cultures across the Ancient World each developed similar but unique ways of assessing the value of silver. One constant seen everywhere is the metal’s quality to always possess value. Besides its obvious use in jewelry and currency, silver also has utility in manufacturing and historical use in medicine.
Over the past 30 years, silver prices have continually risen. Prices remained consistent through the ‘80s and ‘90s, with significant climbs over the past 15 years. Compared to the last three decades, the value of silver has nearly tripled. Thanks to its reliability as an investment material, silver prices are projected to continue to climb for the foreseeable future. Some experts have even dubbed silver “the new gold” for this reason.
Why Choose Sterling Silver Jewelry?
With a continuing price rise, and the availability of other metals such as gold and silver, why would you choose sterling silver jewelry? Sterling silver is a white metal, just like platinum. However, when crafted and polished, platinum and silver take on notably different appearances. Platinum possesses a stunning gray-white sparkle, while highly-polished silver gleams with a pure white light. Why? Polished silver reflects back over 90-percent of light that strikes its surface!
In addition, silver’s malleable nature lends it to a variety of creative uses in jewelry. It can be hammered thin, pulled into wire, and shaped or sculpted into a fascinating range of forms. With a dependable metal memory, sterling silver retains its shape well, making it an exceptional choice for any jewelry you plan on wearing daily.

What is Sterling Silver?
Pure silver, like any precious metal, is not suitable for working into jewelry on its own. Instead, these valuable metals are made of alloys. An alloy introduces an additional metal to help improve strength or appearance of the primary metal. In sterling silver, copper is used to give sterling silver the strength it needs to be worn whenever you want. For a metal to be called silver in the United States, it must be at least 92.5-percent silver. You might see this stamped on your silver jewelry with a 925 hallmark. This is a sign of your silver jewelry’s purity. It just means that 925 parts of the metal (or 92.5%) is pure silver. This allows it be sold as genuine sterling silver. These marks might also be stamped as “silver” or “sterling silver.” Despite this, all these marks mean the same thing; you’re holding a piece of genuine sterling silver!
