History of Silver

For thousands of years, silver has been widely used for making ornaments, utensils and even used as basis for monetary systems. It’s recognized as a precious metal along with gold. The usage of the metal since the olden times is evident from the fact that the word “silver” is used in Anglo-Saxon literature as siolfor and seolfor. In Germanic languages also, the metal silver is referred to as silbir and silabar. The symbol Ag which is used for silver is taken from Latin language. The root for the word lies in Indo-European languages in which ‘arg’ refers to shining and white objects.

Two major differences between silver and sterling silver:

  1. Sterling silver is mainly an alloy of silver, consisting of nearly 92.5% fine silver and 7.5% other metals, like copper, which make it less expensive. Fine silver is composed of 99.9% pure silver, and it is a bit more expensive. That’s why it is used for making jewelry, and also in the photography industry.
  2. Sterling silver is sensitive to air and water, and it gets tarnished on its surface, whereas silver is like gold, which does not tarnish even if it is in constant contact with air and water.

There is a huge difference between true sterling jewelry which can last years and plated jewelry that will come apart leaving marks on your skin. The problem is a lot of people couldn’t buy the real sterling silver jewelry although spend much money.
