The Greatness Of Men's Silver Jewellery

May 4, 2008
Silver has been a popular choice of metal, aside from gold, in the manufacturing of jewellery. In fact, it has gain popularity over the years since silver is undeniably cheaper than gold. But even with its relatively affordable price, silver is very pretty to look at. That is why it is used to make different jewellery such as bracelets, earrings, necklaces and so much more. There is a wide range of men's silver jewellery to choose from especially in online shops like homme rock.

Silver has an exciting property in that it reflects 95% of the light that gets to its surface. It such a beauty to look at since it sparkles even with any type of light that falls on it. This reflective property of silver makes is one of the reasons why it is a popular metal to use for accessories. Another property of silver that is to the materials advantage is that it is one of the softest metals and is very malleable. Silver can be made into different shapes and have the property to be melted then cooled and reformed. It can also be pounded into very thin sheets that is even thinner than human hair. Silver has another interesting property which is called alloying. Alloying means that pure silver can be mixed with other metals for more durability, for example mixing silver and copper creates what is called as sterling silver.

Sterling silver is the silver that is used for men's silver jewellery. Because silver is soft, as mentioned, sterling being 92.5% silver is the best option to use for jewellery and silverware as it can withstand daily use. Even if sterling may not be pure silver, it is very strong yet workable. It is also known for its beauty that lasts a long time.

When buying men's silver jewellery, you have to look for the stamps of quality to ensure that you are getting authentic silver and not just some silver ripoff. Most silver jewellery comes with a quality mark which shows the metal content and the registered trademark of the manufacturer. Authentic silver jewellery can be identified with a lion or leopard mark if it is made in the United Kingdom. If the jewellery is made from any other country, it usually is marked with a .925 or the word sterling. Be sure to look for the fineness mark and the maker's mark on your jewellery to assure its quality.

Once you have bought your silver jewellery, it is important that you take care of it to maintain its beauty. In order to do so, you must store your jewellery in a cloth pouch and avoid cleaning it with household chemicals such as bleach and ammonia. Also avoid wearing jewellery when swimming in chlorinated water. Sometimes, silver tarnishes as a result of its reaction with sulfur or hydrogen sulfide but this can be remedied by using specially formulated polishes that removes the tarnish.

One best way to avoid tarnish is by wearing your silver jewellery regularly. It is the reason why you bought one in the first place anyway;to be able to wear it and show its beauty to the public.
