Sterling silver jewelry is a must-have in a woman’s wardrobe. Indulge your Valentine this season with this useful gifting guide
Valentine’s Day is almost here. What better way to show your adoration for the queen of your heart (and every other woman who matters) than with silver — the queen of metals! A simple indulgence in sterling silver jewellery will bring a smile to her face. And remain easy on your pocket.
Silver jewelry buying tips
Sterling silver is a good buy provided that it is genuine, so make sure to study the certification. Its finish does not wear down and its sparkle lasts for years. Watch out for jewelry that simply has silver plating — these are cheaper, but not made of silver. Rather than only looking out for lovely luster, intricate detailing and fine craftsmanship, look out for the sterling silver hallmark which sometimes has the numerals “925” or “.925” engraved or written, as these guarantee that the metal is genuine sterling silver. This means it has 92.5% silver and the rest is copper or another alloy to overcome the inherent fragility of the shiny metal.
Take the shine, patina, quality and price into consideration when you narrow down on your choices. Once you have established the purity, don’t let the fancy silhouettes and etchings on today’s designs delude you into imagining a lofty price tag. From necklaces to rings for women, sterling silver jewellery is absolutely easy on the pocket as is obvious from these 7 items (all under INR 1,000) that we have handpicked for you!
