We received a message with lots of detailed tips about sterling silver that we would like to share with our readers. Hope you find this useful, we did.

Nothing beats the luxury of sterling silver jewellery for any gift giving occasion. Whether you are shopping for every day fashion jewellery, vintage jewellery to create a unique look, or something for a very special event, you can find sterling silver women’s jewellery that will fit the bill.  Sterling silver is a truly timeless choice that will never go out of style and can be handed down from generation to generation.

When you are shopping for sterling silver jewellery it is smart to know what you are buying.  The best sterling silver jewellery is made of 925 silver.  If the items you are purchasing meet this standard then you can be sure you are buying quality.  925 means that the item is a blend of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper or other precious metal.  Rather than compromising the integrity of the silver, as you might expect, it actually improves the metal by increasing its durability.  100% silver is soft so the creation of an alloy makes gives it sufficient strength that it can be used for jewellery.  When shopping for sterling silver of any kind, always look for 925 silver.

While sterling silver is beautiful on its own, you can find many very unique items that incorporate gemstones or Swarovski crystals.  Necklaces, bracelets and charms with these embellishments can make a gift giving occasion extra special.  For a really memorable present, choose a hand crafted sterling silver jewellery design that will be a true one of a kind treasure; from classic designs to avant garde originals, you cannot go wrong with sterling silver.

When it comes to where to shop for sterling silver pendant jewellery, you have numerous options.  Traditional jewellery stores typically focus on gold jewellery but most will carry at least some silver women’s jewellery.  Specialty silver stores will often have a good selection of charms, pendants, and chains.  However, for an abundance of choice, nothing beats online jewellery shopping.  You can also find the best prices by doing some comparison shopping online.  The internet gives you access to a world of choice when it comes to sterling silver jewellery; you can find every style and type imaginable and some that will surprise you.

When you decide to shop online you can rest assured that you are buying safely by checking for a few things.  Firstly, look for an exchange/refund guarantee.  Be sure to read the terms of the returns policy since different retailers may have different time restrictions.  Look for indications that the site is secure - the address for secure shopping will generally start with ‘https’ - and shop with your credit card rather than a debit card.  Buying by credit card or through Paypal is your safest way to purchase since most of the large credit card providers provide insurance.
