A Sterling Choice

By: Jeffrey M. Bertman Graduate GemologistSterling silver jewelry makes a sparkling, contemporary style statement and is very affordable. To make it harder and give it greater performance qualities, pure silver is alloyed with other metals to create “sterling silver.” Buyers of this precious metal can be sure they are getting what they paid for by looking for the minimum silver content of the piece, stated as 925 parts per thousand of pure silver (the figures “925” or “92.5” might be used to designate silver content). The remaining 7.5 percent of sterling silver content is usually copper, which makes the silver harder but also gives rise to a tendency to tarnish. Some people enjoy the lovely patina of silver jewelry that is continuously worn. Whether your preference leans toward sterling silver, shimmering gold, or dazzling platinum, we invite you to see our amazing array of beautiful fine jewelry. And if you are uncertain in your choice of precious metal, setting, or gemstone, just ask us. That’s why we’re here—to help you experience the wonder, beauty, excitement, and pleasure of owning fine jewelry.
