Sterling Silver Jewelry Basics

Jewelry is often described as an ornament, an artistic creation that reflects culture and thought and expresses compliments to the human form. Therefore wearing pieces of jewelry is an embellishment of everyday life. Men and women alike use this artistic commodity to feel special in some way. Jewelry becomes a powerful means to carve an impression in the minds of people. The jewelry preferred for a formal occasion will often vary greatly from what one wears at an informal gathering.

At times, the accessories we wear become a trademark by which people remember us. No doubt, Jewelry is a mark of wealth and status. At Gem Avenue, we have a huge collection of the perfect match accessories for you for every occasion.

What is Sterling Silver Jewelry?

Jewelry comes in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. It may be made out of any of the precious metals gold, silver, or platinum. Silver is a highly flexible metal and is the most common among precious metals. Sterling silver is defined as 925 silver based on the millesimal fineness scale. This indicates that there are 925 parts of silver per 1000 parts, this equates to 92.5% pure silver. Copper, zinc, gallium, and other metals

are used to complete the balance. The other metals are added to the Sterling Silver alloy to enhance color or to make it more flexible while being worked into jewelry. In the United States, all Sterling Silver must be 100% nickel and lead free, so rest assured that all Gem Avenue Sterling Silver Jewelry is completely safe to wear.
