Silver Jewellery seems to be everywhere right now, on the runways and off. From designer silver chain necklaces to silver gemstone cocktail rings to silver alphabet pendants inspired by style icon Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, silver jewel popularity isn't going anywhere any time soon. Silver jewellery is durable, sophisticated, beautiful, precious and accessible. Silver jewellery can be confidently worn as accessories in our daily lives, as well as for special occasions and events. Sterling Silver 925 is a very valuable white precious metal but is relatively affordable compared to gold and platinum. The material is fit for all types of jewellery from contemporary to avant-garde to classically designed fine jewellery
. Designers and brands have been using this popular metal for quite some time. Sterling silver jewellery is so rich looking that it can stand on its own in necklace
, ring and earring designs. Sterling silver jewellery is often designed with gemstones, utilising faceted and cabochon cuts as well. One of the wonderful things about silver jewellery is not just how it looks, but how it feels! The positively charged ions in silver deflect radiation, improving blood circulation, body temperature and mood. Studies show silver can speed the healing of wounds and protect the body from free radicals. One study showed the wearing of silver rings relieves arthritis. It is not our imagination when it literally 'feels good' to wear silver or gold. Both have healing and protective properties that have been proven by science. Since health, beauty, fashion and fairness have been linked together more and more lately, this might be a nice little bit of information about this very collectible jewellery.
The beauty of sterling silver jewellery is undeniable especially if you have a well-crafted design with high quality metal that is nickel free. At Rocks & Co., we create and carry jewellery made of nickel free precious metals exclusively. The combination of silver settings with gemstones can be a wonderful play of hue, colour, and light. Sterling silver jewellery featuring Moonstone, Opal, Hessonite or any iridescent gem absolutely sparkles! All classes of gemstones are fitting for silver jewellery, from gorgeous Native American Turquoise jewels to bespoke Diamond jewels to intense Black gemstone jewels like Spinel, to various coloured Pearl jewels
, and so on.
As many are aware, sterling silver jewels are not always a white metal jewellery. Becoming more and more popular are pink and yellow gold-plated sterling silver jewels. For example, a fair amount of our silver jewellery at Rocks & Co. is coated with 14-carat gold vermeil, giving it a beautiful yellow gold-tone.
Silver is gaining in value very quickly on the investments market, a fun fact when many are looking to invest in precious metals. So, if you are planning on dabbling in precious metal coin investments, silver is definitely not a bad choice. You can always buy a silver jewel online at Rocks & Co. and invest in your own self-adornment.
Sterling Silver Rings
Sterling silver rings are the most popular for men’s rings. The precious white metal rings are gaining in popularity with gents who are gaining more and more confidence in wearing a sensible number of accessories that are classy yet stylish. The more affordable of the white precious metals makes sterling silver rings popular with women as well. Sterling is the perfect setting for an oversized cocktail ring that doesn’t necessarily break the bank. At Rocks & Co. we have a wide range of sterling silver men and women’s rings that are perfect for every budget and taste.
A silver necklace or silver chain is a wonderful gift for a man or a woman and are enjoyed by both sexes. Despite the runway trends of ultra-huge metal chains, classic chains will never go out of style. A simple silver necklace can be quite delicate and beautiful. Some of the link chain types in our store include the anchor chain, the simple and sleek round link chains, the delicate flat link chain, and the Cuban, aka curb, link chain (preferred by men).
Silver Necklaces for Women
As, with classic gold necklaces, delicate silver necklaces for women are a favourite accessory. A delicate silver chain featuring a beautiful gemstone pendant is a wonderful gift for that special woman in your life, even if that special woman is yourself. Silver necklaces for women are accessories of self-expression and adornment, often holding sentimental value, which can be worn daily with either casual dressier outfits.
Silver Chain Necklace
A Silver chain necklace can feel so good that you may never want to take it off. In fact, you can wear them all the time, but you might want to polish them up a bit every so often. Sterling silver chain necklaces should not be irritating to the skin unless they have nickel in the mix. If you have metal allergies, always check with your jeweller that no nickel is used in their silver jewels, as with Rocks & Co.
Silver bangles are usually created as smooth perfect spheres or asymmetrical shapes or even geometric shapes in an inanimate form. Round silver bangles are worn stacked in a group allowing a happy clinking sound when they meet. A delicate offshoot of this design would be the engraved silver and gold bangles with intricate floral and ornate designs. A silver cuff is also considered a ‘bangle’.
Silver Opal Rings
Take a look at our silver Opal
rings to get an idea of the happiness the two natural beauties create when combined. As we've stated earlier, iridescent gems work wonderfully with the white metal of sterling silver. At Rocks & Co. we have over 1500 various silver Opal rings to choose from. Some of the gemstone beauties in our Opal silver rings include incredibly priced AAA Welo Opal.
