The Timelessness of Silver
The Timelessness of Silver Silver1-92Silver's uses have a long and varied history. Because silver is malleable and can be pressed into thin sheets which reflect light, it has been used for most of recorded history to make mirrors. Silver's ability to be pressed into sheets also means it can be squeezed into thin wires and therefore has become commonplace in electronics. And as long as silver has been used to make mirrors, it has also been used to make jewelry. However, there is no pure silver jewelry. This is because pure silver is simply too soft to use for jewelry. To remedy this, sterling silver was created, in which a little over ninety percent of the piece is pure silver and the rest is an alloy designed to give the piece strength and longevity.

At Chavez Fine Jewelers, we have a large selection of sterling silver jewelry. In sterling silver chains, we have a wide variety to satisfy almost any taste. Our sterling silver earrings include both the traditional and more cutting edge. We also have a variety of sterling silver rings, from simple designs to the more complex.

Sterling silver jewelry is relatively easy to care for. Wear your sterling silver rings, earrings, and necklaces often, not only because they are beautiful, but because the natural oils on your skin help protect the jewelry. Although you should wear the pieces often, be careful to remember to take off the jewelry if performing any household tasks both inside and outside; this will reduce the chances that your jewelry may scratch. At night store each piece separately with anti-tarnish strips. If you find a piece has tarnished or scratched, feel free to bring it in to our store to take a look at it; our experts will more than likely be able to restore it.
