by Dws Jewellery Jewelry Manufacturer
During civilisation period, there was an infatuation on silver among men and women. Over the era, this mystic white metal has been used for celebrations and special occasions. In 3100 b.c. it is noted that Egyptian rules received silver gifts from Crete ambassadors. This metal is widely marked in olden literature by Spanish writer Cervantes who wrote that every child is not born with a silver spoon indicating the value of the metal those days. Also dates back, Germany had a custom that every man should gift silver to his wife on their 25th anniversary. 

Silver that is naturally available on Earth cannot be used for making jewellery because of its softness and malleability. Thus alloying this precious metal with copper makes it durable and strengthens its properties. This metal is usually called as the 925 sterling silver, and it is used by designers because it is low cost and can easily craft it into valuable jewellery, which is called 925 silver jewellery. On buying these jewels, one should be aware of how to identify its originality. The federal trade commission FTC has assigned a set of marking to ensure proper quality. This stamp is called trademark, and for silver, it is 925 sterling silver. Every single design available in DWS Jewellery is hallmarked with the label 925 or sterling as per FTC. Also, the pricing of silver article, gifts and jewellery depends on the design, quality of metal used and the designer's craftsmanship.
