SILVER GUIDE


About Silver

Silver is second only to gold in many respects. Silver is known by the mankind since Pre-History, and its discovery is estimated happened to shortly after that of Copper and Gold.

In India silver holds the second place in jewellery and ornaments. Considered holy and spiritual due to its healing and magical properties, the metal is said to be auspicious. This is the main reason that most of the Indian household prefer to have silver items in the form of jewellery pieces such as ornaments and utensils. Due to its luster, malleability and affordability, silver has been one of the most popular precious metals to be used in fashion jewellery throughout history. Anklets, bracelets are the common items among silver jewellery. Its relative affordability has made it a desirable alternative for designer Jewellers and consumers alike. Born with a silver spoon is a common notion to depict the sanctity and celebrity of silver on any occasion.


Silver Purity

Pure silver, also called fine silver, on its own is relatively too soft, very malleable, and easily damaged so it is commonly combined with other metals to produce a more durable product. The most popular of these alloys is sterling silver, which consists of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper and can also be referred to as 92.5 fine silver. Although any other metal can be used to make up the 7.5% of non-silver, copper is the most effective combination because it adds strength and durability to silver jewellery.

Good quality Silver jewellery makes use of sterling silver (92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper). It is the closest to pure silver you'll find in jewellery. Sterling silver jewelry is often plated with a thin coat of .999 fine silver to give the jewellery a shiny finish. This process is called "flashing". Silver jewelry can also be plated with rhodium (for a bright, shiny look) or gold (to produce silver gilt). Silverware uses silver purity from 90% to 99% depending on the piece.


Hallmarking

A maker's mark or trademark must accompany the quality stamp. Always look for both brandings to guarantee the quality of your silver jewellery. Genuine Sterling Silver jewellery bears stamp of BIS hallmark. These "fineness" marks are stamped into the metal and indicate the ratio of pure silver to added alloys, and can appear marked as sterling, sterling silver, ster, 925, 92.5 or .925.


Price of Silver

Silver is the most common of all precious metals which makes it more affordable than either gold or platinum. It is also one of the easiest metals to extract which keeps production prices low. The price of silver jewellery is dependent on the fineness, or quality, of the silver and on the amount of labor, intricacy of design, and level of craftsmanship required to fashion the piece. The value of silver is closely monitored in the market 24/7 and fluctuates on a daily basis. Again, it is imperative that the jeweller you purchase from is reliable and authentic in mentioning the exact weight and purity.



Worth of Silver

Silver jewellery is an effective way of buying and adding to your jewellery collection as it is much more affordable and easy to buy. If you like the look of platinum, but cannot afford the price tag, silver jewelry is a great alternative. It is always recommended to buy from trusted and branded jewellers.


Silver Care

As with all fine jewellery, it is important to treat your silver jewellery with care. With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime.



Cleaning

Pure sterling silver jewellery has a tendency to tarnish especially when it's not worn. Tarnish build-up is a dullness in silver finish that naturally occurs when silver reacts with sulphur or hydrogen sulphide in the ambient air. Tarnishing does not mean that your sterling silver is not pure but it’s the opposite.

Prompt cleaning is important when silver vessels like plates, glasses, knives or other ritual puja-ware are used on a daily basis and exposed to certain foods containing sulphur or those which are acidic or salty. Food such as salt, onions, mayonnaise and vinegar are harmful to silver. It is recommended that you clean and re-polish/re-plate your Silver jewellery regularly in order to prevent tarnish build up. With proper care, your fine quality silver will last a lifetime.

For home cleaning of silver jewellery and articles, different combinations can be used:

i) Clean silver ornaments that are starting to discolour with a soft cloth dipped in a mix of mild dish detergent and warm water. Rinse with cool water and buff with a cloth until dry.

ii) To remove Tarnish, look for specially made Silver polishing products which are safe, simple and inexpensive.

iii) For heavier tarnish, mix a paste of three parts baking soda or salt to one part in hot water. Either submerge your jewellery into the solution, letting it sit for 5 minutes or wet the silver and apply the paste with a soft cloth. After 5 minutes, rinse with cool water and buff with a cloth until dry. Do not soak silver as this speed up the tarnishing process.

Caring

Silver gets oxidized over a period and develops a layer of thin dark film as a coating. This occurs mostly in a humid environment, but it is inevitable in any climate.

Remove your silver jewellery when engaging in any activity that may cause scratching or chipping, such as gardening, painting or outdoor sports. Water can react with cleaning fluid which leads to discoloration and silver is particularly susceptible to this problem. It is also recommended that you remove your silver jewellery when swimming or working with household chemicals such as ammonia or bleach as these chemicals can cause permanent damage.

If maintained properly, however, silver jewels and silver ware improve with age and develop a lush patina on their surface.

Storage

Dampness causes the silver in the setting to tarnish and the enamel to crack.

Silver jewellery should always be stored in soft, dry, individual tarnish preventive plastic zip lock bags or in a separate air tight container to prevent it from oxidation / tarnishing.

Keep a pouch of desiccant or Silica gel (often found in medicines or shoes boxes), is highly useful in absorbing the moisture in the air, when kept along with your jewellery.
