Valentine’s Day Gift Guide: Statement Silver

January 29th, 2016 | Ali Brownrigg


Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion to style your significant other out in silver. Chic and classic, sterling silver jewelry is totally having a moment.


Sterling silver has a powerful history. It was used as currency by the British for 500 years and defines the name of the utensils we eat with every single day. It’s also the type of silver most suited for fine jewelry. Its durability and malleability are assets when used for handcrafted jewelry featuring decorative weaving and other intricate designs.

No doubt you’ve heard people lament over polishing silver. Silver takes on a dull tarnish build-up when it reacts with the sulfur or hydrogen sulfide molecules floating through the air. Wearing your silver jewelry often is the best way to prevent tarnish and regular cleaning will keep it bright and sparkling.
