The name is synonymous with wealth and beauty, captivating Man's imagination for over 6000 years. Its history is of a lustrous, romantic metal shrouded in superstition and mystery.
The Peruvian Incas called Silver "the tears of the moon", awed by its bewitching gleam; and the Chinese believed that a Silver locket hung around a child's neck would ward off evil spirits.
Timeless Beauty of Silver
We find Silver in jewellery from earrings to pendants, to bracelets, bangles, and rings. But the timeless beauty of Silver takes it far from mere ornament.
In times past we've used Silver, a metal of purity, for protecting us against evil in almost every culture down the ages. Silver has been melted down to form amulets, jewellery, bullets, daggers and religious symbols such as crucifixes.
Silver amulets and daggers have been driven into the ground above the grave to prevent evil spirits from escaping; Silver nails driven into coffin lids to help prevent evil spirits from rising from the grave... and even modern technology would not be where it is without the properties of Silver as a conductor of both heat and electricity.
Silver is the brightest of all the metals
Silver reflects a full 95% of light that falls upon it. Silver even finds its way into the common lexicon with phrases like "born with a Silver spoon in his mouth".
Besides denoting wealth and status, Silver has been one of the most romantic and sought-after of all the precious metals. Captivated and bewitched by its allure and beauty since time immemorial, people have scoured the remotest areas of the world seeking this precious, lustrous metal.
As early as 700 BC the Mesopotamian used Silver as coinage; the Romans and the Greeks likewise, and as ornament, too. Even our own English shilling "Sterling", originally denoting a specific weight of Silver, has come to mean excellence. Pure Silver is much too soft to be practical for everyday use, so we tend to find it as Sterling Silver, which is 92.5% Silver alloyed with other light metals. This is the ideal percentage of Silver to retain its natural bright sheen, yet be durable enough for everyday use.
Sterling Silver is the benchmark, the recognised standard for quality Silver. All our Silver is sterling Silver, and as a mark of quality the number "925" is engraved unobtrusively onto each piece.
Today, Silver's intrinsic value has been acknowledged and accepted and Silver is now a popular and affordable investment.
