Since the dawn of civilization, men and women have been captivated by silver's spell and splendor. Throughout the ages this mystical white metal has been used to mark historical milestones, celebrations, achievements and special occasions. Silver jewelry is very popular due to its affordability, variety of designs, and durability. Modern jewelry designers are flocking to this noble metal because it's the perfect combination of malleability, beauty, and durability. 

While looking for jewelry, the first thing that becomes a reason of concern is the metal of the jewelry.  One must keep in mind the metal as it determines the look as well the durability of the jewelry one is buying.  The best answer to this dilemma is sterling silver.  Sterling Silver is an alloy containing 92.5% of silver by weight and 7.5% of other metals usually copper and sometimes other metals like zinc or nickel. This is done as pure silver is too soft to be made into things and hence is alloyed with other metal to increase its durability and strength.  It has many purposes like making coins, decorative items, utensils and jewelry.  In fact, sterling silver jewelry is one of the upcoming favorites in the market.  There are a multitude of reasons for why you should buy sterling silver jewelry.

1.Sterling silver jewelry is durable

When taken care of correctly, sterling silver jewelry can last you a lifetime. Savvy sterling silver owners know that their pieces can look exactly the same even after forty years! True 925 sterling silver is not cheap. The extra cost is more than worth it for the quality and lifetime value of the jewelry. Some of your well-made pieces could even become family heirlooms in the future.

2. You can follow fashion trends

Any woman who likes to keep up with the latest news in fashion and jewelry knows that the pace of fast-fashion jewelry trends can be dizzying. Keeping up with what's in and what's out is exhausting. Luckily, sterling silver's popularity means it's almost always guaranteed to be in. The latest styles in jewelry will always include sterling silver, even if the designs change. 

3.Easy to maintain

It's disappointing to see a favorite piece suddenly look dirty or discolored after sitting in a jewelry box for just a bit too long. All silver can tarnish with time, especially if it's not worn often. But most craft stores or hardware stores carry a varnish that will work with your silver. Cleaning your jewelry with varnish and a fresh cloth will get the silver sparkling before you know it.

4.Endless options

Because silver is a relatively soft metal, it's easy for jewelers to mold and experiment with -- which means there are constantly new designs up for offer. The wide range of styles and designs in sterling silver mean that you're sure to find a piece (or twenty) that fits your personal style. Whether you're looking for a brooch, bracelet, ring, or pendant, there are thousands of options. Even sterling silver loyalists are never limited to the same variations on old concepts. Innovation is constant.

In most of the Western world, weddings and engagements are celebrated with diamond rings – a simple, sparkling gem that represents the longevity and loyalty of love and marriage. what about other countries? Let's read the history and cultural significance of wedding rings from a wide range of cultures and religions.

Western World

Most people in the United States, France and Canada wear their wedding and engagement rings on their left hand, because of the old tradition that a vein in the fourth finger of the right hand ran directly to the heart. But in plenty of other countries, including Germany, Russia, India and Norway, brides wear their engagement rings and wedding bands on the right hand instead.


In Hindu tradition, women are given toe rings (known as bichiya) as engagement rings. Women are gifted iron bangle bracelets in West Bengal, which are plated with precious metals, silver and gold. These untraditional engagement rings are truly beautiful and ornately decorated similarly to a Western engagement ring. In some instances, Hindu men gift their betrothed with both the traditional engagement toe ring and a Western-style one.


Irish weddings and betrothals often feature the traditional Claddagh ring (pronounced "clad-daw"), named after the village where it was popularized. The ring features a crown, heart, and clasped hands, symbolizing loyalty, love, and friendship, and is worn in different directions to indicate friendship, betrothal, or marriage.

Eastern Europe

For decades, Slavic brides and grooms have opted to wear their engagement and wedding rings on their right hands instead of their left. This includes folks from Austria, Germany, Poland and Russia!


In the Nordic tradition, both men and women exchange and wear engagement rings. These engagement rings generally take the form of simple gold bands. More recently, however, more women have begun to initiate proposals, leading to a drastic increase in the popularity of men's engagement rings.

Sparkling Engagement Rings of British Royal Family

Le 25 janvier 2018, 10:32 dans Mode 0

For centuries, the Royal Family has boasted an impressive jewellery collection. With a vast amount of stunning family heirlooms and a never-ending line of bespoke jewellers honoured and thrilled to design and have pieces worn by the Royal Family. In its long and storied history, the British Royal Family has seen some colourful women in its ranks - and some equally colourful engagement rings. Let's take a look.

Princess Diana / Kate Middleton

Princess Diana's iconic 12-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring now sits on the finger of Kate Middleton, following her marriage to Prince William in 2012. The ring is estimated to be worth over £300,000. 

Beautifully encased by a halo of 14 glittering solitaire diamonds, this breathtaking ring caused a scandal at the time of Diana's engagement: not having a unique, custom-made ring was unthinkable for a Royal engagement and some newspapers went as far as calling it a'commoner's ring'.

The Duchess of Windsor, Wallis Simpson

Edward VIII abdicated the throne to marry twice divorced American Wallis Simpson, presenting her with a 19.77-carat emerald ring. The inside of the ring was inscribed with the words: "We are ours now 27 x 36."The numbers are shorthand for the date he proposed, October 27, 1936.

Meghan Markle

The most recent of Royal engagements, Meghan's ring took six months for Harry to design and is a stunning diamond trilogy ring, made of one large centre stone that's accompanied by two smaller diamonds either side. We at The Diamond Store estimate the ring's worth at a minimum of £150,000. The trilogy shape creates optimum sparkle, and represents the past, present and future. It is set in yellow gold, a classic metal, said by Harry to be Meghan's favourite.

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York

When Prince Andrew proposed to Sarah Ferguson in 1985, he chose a gorgeous Burmese ruby, alledgedly to match her vibrant red hair. The red ruby was surrounded by 10 sparkling diamonds in a floral style and set in stunning yellow gold.

Rubies make a fitting gemstone for engagement rings, especially for someone who is looking for a colourful, less conventional stone. Rubies, like sapphires, are also incredibly tough, almost as hard as diamonds. So their heirloom quality is well suited to engagement rings worn daily for a lifetime.
