Silver had great value and aesthetic appeal in many ancient cultures around the world. Not as valuable as gold, silver was still used for many similar purposes but on a grander scale. Most ancient cultures benefitted from specialised craftsmen, often working for the royal households to produce their shiny wonders. Jewellery, utensils, vessels, dishes, pepper castors, figurines, masks, and decorative objects were made from silver.

If silver is your precious metal of choice for jewellery, rest assured that your sterling silver jewellery will last a good while. But you may wonder whether 925 sterling silver is any good?

 The short answer is yes. Sterling silver is made of 92.5% of pure silver, as thename implies, and the rest (7.5%) mainly comprises copper and other trace elements. For silver which contains below 90% of silver, it is not sterling silver. This metal is even better than pure silver, as it is not as soft as pure silver, stronger and more durable, making it an excellent precious metal that jewellers. value.
