Elegant Sterling Silver Jewelry Sparkles
by Chavez Fine Jewelers Inc.
The Allure of Silver:

Today, elegant silver attracts numerous people shopping for fine rings, pendants and other exceptional pieces of jewelry. Silver reflects visible light very well, one reason it contributes to the manufacture of mirrors. In fact, ever since at least 3,000 B.C., humans have prized this lovely metal for its unique, vibrant properties.

In the United States, one of the largest silver discoveries occurred in 1857. At that time, a prospector in Nevada stumbled across a huge deposit of Silver in Nevada (today called "the Silver State"). The Comstock Lode became the stuff of lore and legend in the Old West.

Elegant Silver Jewelry:

In the modern era, silver remains a very popular precious element. In its pure form, this shiny bright metal proves too soft to wear in rings, brooches, earrings, pendants and other items. Jewelers mix it with a very small quantity of other, stronger metals called "alloys" to enable it to retain a lasting shape.

The ability to mold and transform silver into an array of attractive forms contributes to its striking and alluring qualities in jewelry. This valuable metal today offers a solid investment for collectors of fine coins and jewelry alike.

Some Examples:

To fully appreciate the versatility of silver, simply compare some of the lovely engagement rings offered by Chavez Fine Jewelers. Two very beautiful examples illustrate this point. From the strong, sleek lines of this multi-row engagement ring, a simple yet elegant fashion:

to the ornate splendor of this diamond halo engagement ring, silver lends itself to variety.

Both of these models involve the use of .925 Sterling Silver. They each convey elegance in a superb way.

Silver also forms a component of many other types of fine jewelry. For instance, just consider this diamond halo pendant:

This lovely necklace crafted from white silver boasts a large diamond in the center surrounded by a double halo of smaller stones. No one giving or receiving this item as a gift would ever question the power of white silver to make a significant, long lasting impression. If you want to share joy with someone special, elegant silver jewelry reflects the sparkle of happiness so well!

Conclusion:

Silver truly deserves its reputation as a wonderful, precious metal. It has contributed to exceptional jewelry for centuries. To see many incredibly lovely examples of high quality silver pieces, simply spend a few moments visiting our online catalog and take a closer look at the fine craftsmanship of the rings, pendants, brooches and other well-crafted works on display. You'll certainly find many stunning silver pieces there!
