Handmade Silver Rings

Silver is a wonderful metal for making jewellery. Alloyed with 7.5% copper we use sterling silver the standard for silver work for nearly 800 years. White with a hint of pink from the copper content silver will polish to a high lustre and as its polish fades an attractive lustre develops showing the true colour of the metal. Being relatively inexpensive when compared with gold it is an ideal medium for mounting large gemstones and making heavier pieces of jewellery.
