 Metals Information

According to Wikipedia:

"Jewelry and silverware are traditionally made from sterling silver (standard silver), an alloy of 92.5% silver with 7.5% copper. In the US, only an alloy consisting of at least 92.5% fine silver can be marketed as "silver" (thus frequently stamped 925). Sterling silver is harder than pure silver, and has a lower melting point (893 °C) than either pure silver or pure copper.With the addition of germanium, the patented modified alloy Argentium is formed, with improved properties including resistance to firescale.

Sterling silver jewelry is often plated with a thin coat of .999 fine silver to give the item a shiny finish. This process is called "flashing". Silver jewelry can also be plated with rhodium (for a bright, shiny look) or gold.

Silver is a constituent of almost all colored carat gold alloys and carat gold solders, giving the alloys paler color and greater hardness. White 9 carat gold contains 62.5% silver and 37.5% gold, while 22 carat gold contains up to 8.4% silver or 8.4% copper.

Historically the training and guild organization of goldsmiths included silversmiths as well, and the two crafts remain largely overlapping. Unlike blacksmiths, silversmiths do not shape the metal while it is red-hot but instead, work it at room temperature with gentle and carefully placed hammer blows. The essence of silversmithing is to take a flat piece of metal and by means of different hammers, stakes and other simple tools, to transform it into a useful object...'

In today's economy silver makes sense.

Semi-Precious Stone Information

According to Wikipedia:

gemstone or gem (also called a precious or semi-precious stone, or jewel) is a piece of  mineral, which, in cut and polished form, is used to make jewelry or other adornments. However, certain rocks, (such as lapis lazuli) and organic materials (such as amber or jet) are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their lustre or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. 


has been used for a 

long time 

as a gem and for ornamental purposes. It is the most common variety of chalcedony (quartz).

successive layers are laid and not disturbed. Varieties of this stone are characterized by difference in the shape and color of the bands.

If stored for long time, wipe with soft damp cloth periodically or place a piece of damp cloth with them. Do not store in plastic - chemicals in the plastic can harm delicate pearls.
