Whether you are a jewellery junkie or a shimmer seeker, you already know that silver jewellery is where shine meets style. It is not just today but silver has been stealing the spotlight since ancient times. From the Pharaohs of Egypt to the goddesses of ancient Greece, silver has always been the bling of choice for the bold and beautiful.
The best part is that the silver jewellery is as diverse as your ever-evolving style. A look at online jewellery brands like Orionz Jewels, and you will find silver jewellery from minimalist chic to extravagant elegance. Picture yourself rocking a sleek silver necklace with a quirky solitaire-studded pendant or an intricate silver bracelet that's an absolute showstopper.
In this blog, we will venture into the fascinating world of silver jewellery to discuss five mind-blowing facts. So what are we waiting for? Let’s unlock the mysteries, embrace the shimmer and shine, and ignite our inner jewellery enthusiast.
The Alloy Allure
Contrary to our belief, we cannot use pure silver for crafting jewellery. You see, pure silver, also known as fine silver, is a delicate metal that does not quite stand up to the challenges of everyday wear and tear. That’s why for our daily wear jewellery we use sterling silver. It's an alloy that combines the best of both worlds - strength and style. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver, the reason behind its shine and allure. The remaining 7.5% is a carefully selected mix of other metals, working behind the scenes to build support and durability.
For most of our silver jewellery here at Orionz Jewels, we use Hallmarked 925 Silver with a purity stamp. All our products are also nickel free and are safe to be worn by even the most sensitive of skins. So, you don’t have to worry when you wear our exquisite cocktail rings like this Pink Oval Solitaire Ring or our premium men’s bracelets like this Modern Monk Bracelet because they are made from the most hypoallergenic metal – nickel free 925 Sterling Silver.
Eco-Chic Recycling Revolution
If you are an eco-conscious fashionista, you will be glad to know that sterling silver can also be recycled. The recycling process of sterling silver jewellery is quite simple. Precious silver is extracted from used materials with absolute purity. The recycled silver retains the exact same quality as the original jewellery, ensuring that sustainability and style go hand in hand.
Orionz is a 100% sustainable brand, where we use 925 Sterling Silver that forms our main raw material. So, when you sport our glamorous Fine Block Hoop Earrings or our Chunky Rope Link Chain for Men, you are choosing sterling silver that you can recycle in the future. By doing this, you will not only reduce CO2 emissions but also conserve precious energy during the extraction process of pure silver.
Mastering the Art of Silver Sparkle
But hey, let's not forget about the care and keeping of your silver jewellery. See, to enhance the durability and efficiency of sterling silver, a touch of copper is added to the mix. However, copper and other metals can undergo tarnishing when exposed to oxygen and various environmental factors. This means that over time, sterling silver has the potential to develop unsightly tarnish. Regular cleaning is the secret ingredient to keeping tarnish at bay. Grab a soft microfiber cloth and give your sterling silver a gentle polish, unveiling its lustrous shine once more. Get more intel here.
Health and Wellness Secrets of Silver
Silver has emerged as a champion in human health care, with a long-standing reputation as an antibiotic. From water purification to wound care to orthopedic surgeries, silver is widely used in the medical world. When it comes to wearing silver jewellery, it contributes to improved blood circulation and optimal heat regulation. The properties of silver encourage elasticity in blood vessels, facilitating a more efficient blood flow throughout the body. Additionally, silver's unique properties help balance electrical imbalances in the body, playing a role in regulating body temperature and promoting overall well-being.
Wonders of Silver's Legacy
It has a captivating story that dates back to ancient times, with silver objects discovered as far back as 4000 BC. This illustrious metal even played a groundbreaking role as the first-ever currency, surpassing the value of gold in ancient Egypt. Not only that, it is one of the best thermal conductors and ranks the highest on the scale of light reflectivity. Silver’s symbolism and spiritual beliefs are also well known. The precious metal represents motherhood and femininity and is believed to offer a shield against enchantments. When you wear our Nazar Bracelet, it is not only the evil eye design that will ward off negative energy but the Sterling Silver that will also keep your aura pure and positive. For those who want to embrace spirituality should try our Revolving Om Barrel Bracelet as wearing a silver bracelet on the left wrist is said to summon the positive energy of one's surroundings.
