Sterling Silver - a Staple Piece of Jewelry

By: Temp

When people are out and about doing their shopping, usually jewelry is not on the list of things that they want to purchase. Ultimately, jewelry to most people is what is known as a luxury purchase. In other words, it is a purchase that the vast majority of people only make on a rare basis and only when they are looking to pamper themselves somewhat. It is not really a regular purchase and for good reason; a lot of jewelry is expensive. When people have to pay for their lodging, their food and expenses for their children, it is quite right that jewelry is not given a place of importance in terms of the priority list. However, there are certain types of jewelry that can be purchased in a reasonable way and it is these jewelry types that are frequently referred to as staple pieces of jewelry. Sterling silver is one of these staple pieces of jewelry.

What makes sterling silver such a staple when it comes to jewelry? Well, the first and foremost reason for that has to do with the material itself. Sterling silver is a material that has been used for jewelry for dozens of years now and the reason that it has continued to enjoy popularity in the creation of a number of different jewelry pieces each year is that as a piece of material, it is very popular amongst the commercial populace. It is a beautiful material that creates beautiful jewelry and when you have a material like that as a manufacturer, you are going to want to use it as much as possible. Likewise when you have a material like that as a distributor, you are going to want to use it as much as possible.

In addition to the aesthetic value of sterling silver, there is also the functional value of the material itself. This material is one that can withstand a lot of punishment and while it does have the malleability and ductility of a lot of other types of silver, you will find that sterling silver is a bit more resistant to those types of motions. Therefore, you don't have to worry about accidentally banging your ring up against a table and having it change shape. As long as you don't make a hobby out of such an action, you will find that sterling silver is definitely a durable material.

So aesthetic value and functionality are definitely two important aspects to sterling silver jewelry, but is there anything else that deserves to be mentioned alongside the two? There certainly is! Affordability is the third part of the three points in favor of sterling silver and sterling silver as a piece of material is very low cost; especially when compared to other kinds of silver and gold. In addition to being affordable, it is also cost effective. A lot of gold and silver jewelry is not cost effective simply because of things like maintenance costs, but sterling silver jewelry is something that you can purchase with confidence in knowing that it won't be a financial drain on you for years to come.
