Silver Jewellery, Good Quality Is Hard To Find

It is true that good quality silver jewellery is not easy to find. Given the high profit margins that gold jewellery provides, it is no surprise that, most jewellers prefer to stay away from silver jewellery. Most silver jewellery that is sold is wholesale silver jewellery that is made with a low price point in mind. If you are looking for some good 925 silver jewellery, you will need to make a load of compromises. Jewellery buyers have been given to believe for many decades that silver jewellery cannot be well made. We will consider the major issues that are related to sterling silver jewellery.

Design: There is no reason why silver jewellery cannot be made with designs that are similar to gold jewellery. The truth is that, jewellers do not give much attention to designs used to make 925 silver jewellery. If you are really keen on getting a particular design for your silver jewel, the best option would be to go for a custom silver jewel. The designs used for silver jewellery should ideally consider the look of the metal. It is also necessary that, the silver weight be proportional to the size and dimensions of the 925 silver jewellery being made.

Gemstones: Technically there is no reason why sterling silver jewellery, should be made with lower grade gem stones. Many people love sterling silver jewellery because of it's grace and classic look. Some others also wear 925 sterling silver jewellery because, they are allergic to gold jewellery or just do not like gold jewellery. There is ofcourse a segment of jewellery buyers who shop for silver jewellery only because it is cheap. This segment would look more for external appearance and not be very particular about other issues. Most jewellers give few gem stone options when it comes to silver jewellery, in most cases gemstone options are not given and the buyer is expected to be happy with what is available. If you need a specific gemstone for your silver jewellery, you will most likely have to look for a custom jewellery provider.

Craftsmanship: At Kaisilver, we use the same set of skilled craftsmen to create gold and sterling silver jewellery. No, other jeweller puts the kind of attention and dedication that we do, into making 925 silver jewellery. If you are looking for cheap quality silver jewellery, there are many wholesale silver jewellery items peddled in the markets. Kaisilver makes high quality sterling silver jewellery with good metal weight and craftsmanship. It is quite scary when jewellers compromise on craftsmanship for silver jewellery. This is because good craftsmanship does not only improve external beauty. Firm gemstone mounting, skilled finishing for sharp and pointed edges etc, are possible only if a skilled craftsman works on your silver jewel. A single piece custom silver jewellery order would take quite some time to create, this is because high quality sterling silver jewellery cannot be made with a fully mechanized process.

Antique Styles: When it comes to creating classic antique style designs, sterling silver is an excellent metal choice. Antique jewellery would always contain a healthy metal weight, this might make gold an expensive metal choice. Sterling silver jewellery will show a natural tarnish after a while. If you can control this tarnish to remain at a minimum, the slightly visible tarnish will enhance the classic looks of your antique design sterling silver jewellery. Considering the fact that most antique jewels would have fairly large and imposing dimensions, choosing sterling silver will help to moderate costs.

Men's Jewellery: There are a few essential features of men's jewellery, one of these is a good metal weight. This is because men do not take much care of their jewellery, the jewellery therefore needs to be made as strong and sturdy as possible. For this to happen, the metal weight will have to be proportional to the jewellery size and dimensions. Gold, becomes a very expensive proposition and most men therefore prefer to wear sterling silver jewellery. If you consider men's pendants, most of the pendants would have a deeper meaning and significance. For example, if you talk about a men's cross pendant it is a religious jewel. In such cases the metal is not an important factor, the design concept of the jewel is more important. Many men prefer sterling silver jewellery because, it looks quiet and composed. A large percentage of men prefer to stay away from flashy gold jewellery and glittering gemstones, 925 sterling silver jewellery is more acceptable to such buyers.

Plating: Why is silver jewellery plated? This is an important question that needs to be answered. We mentioned above that all silver jewellery will tarnish after a while. Besides this, sterling silver jewellery will not have the white glowing color of white gold, it ofcourse does not look similar to yellow gold too. Most jewellers use rhodium, gold or even platinum plating on silver jewellery. The first objective is to give temporary protection from tarnish, remember that it is temporary protection and not permanent. Another reason for plating 925 silver jewellery is to, give the jewellery an expensive and extravagant appearance. Once again, this expensive look will last only for a while until the plating wears off. More information related to plating of sterling silver jewellery can be found in the next paragraph that deals with silver tarnish.

Silver Tarnish: We mentioned about silver jewellery and silver tarnish above, let us now try to understand what silver tarnish means. Observe your sterling silver ring or any other silver item for a few months. The color of the metal changes to a slight creamish-brown color, this is the onset of silver tarnish. All 925 silver jewellery will tarnish, leaving it uncleaned will lead to severe silver tarnish. There is an easy way to control silver tarnish on silver jewellery, occassionally wipe your sterling silver jewellery with a soft moist cloth. Do not soak the cloth in water, too much of water could affect certain gem stones. Make sure that the cloth appears just damp and moist, use a cloth that has no sharp or hard pins, clips or buttons. Severe silver tarnish can get quite stubborn, professional cleaning by a jewellery professional is then required. We have mentioned above regarding various platings that are used on silver jewellery, these platings are done to slow the tarnish process. As mentioned earlier plated sterling silver jewellery, will look quite awful when the plating starts to wear off. We would therefore recommend, sterling silver jewellery that is not plated. Just make sure to wipe your silver jewel with a soft moist cloth once in a while.

Cleaning: There is a good degree of similarity in cleaning gold jewellery and silver jewellery. A simple rule that is always true is that, expensive jewellery should not be worn throughout the day, treat such jewels as special occassion jewels. Good quality 925 silver jewellery does not come cheap, you should therefore give it the same degree of attention as you would for gold jewellery. When you clean silver gem stone jewellery or even gold jewellery, you will need to consider the type of gems set in the jewellery. For examples, gems like bloodstone and turquoise should not be soaked in water. If you have emeralds set in your sterling silver jewellery, washing in soap water is not recommended, soaking in water is also not good for emeralds, avoid ultrasonic cleaners for emeralds at all costs. The important factor that needs to be considered when cleaning sterling silver jewellery is, tarnish. We had also mentioned that light cleaning of silver jewellery with a soft moist cloth will elminate ugly or stubborn tarnish in most cases. However, if you prefer to use silver polish lotions and fabrics, make sure that the chemical contents of these cleaners do not affect the gemstones in your silver jewellery.

Wholesale: We often get queries from buyers for single piece custom silver jewellery designs. On seeing the price quotation, the buyer informs us of a TV channel, or discount store that sells the same piece at half the price. Why does this happen? Have we overcharged you? The answer is a definite 'NO' and here is why. When we make a single silver piece jewellery, the entire overheads related to design and moulding are to be borne by that single piece. Further, a single piece jewel cannot be mass finished or polished or even casted. You need to perform most of these operations by hand, this involves a lot of skilled craftsmanship. The TV shop channels and department stores sell wholesale jewellery, this is machine made in large numbers. You will not get the fine craftsmanship that a single piece custom silver jewel would get. This is mainly because most operations for wholesale silver jewellery manufacturing are mechanized, there is no scope for giving individual attention to each jewel. Ordering custom silver jewellery gives you a high degree of customization, this cannot be matched by wholesale 925 silver jewellery.

The above is a brief report on the issues involved in making and buying sterling silver jewellery. Good quality silver jewellery takes immense time and effort to create. It relies on a high degree of skill, something that is today found only in countries like Thailand and India. You will be surprised to know that several traditional skills have today been destroyed in China, industrialization has enslaved that nation into becoming a HUGE production center for the world market. 90% of the merchandise exported out of China has nothing to do with traditional Chinese crafts or culture! Kaisilver creates high quality gold and sterling silver jewellery, we nurture, support and encourage over 3,500 skilled craftsmen in Thailand.

Fire Opal, Be Impressed With It's Transparency
Most people including quite a few jewellers believe that, natural opals cannot be transparent. But there is a mining area near the dormant volcanoes of Mexico that prove them wrong. These mines yield fine quality fire opals, the color range is from a pure pale orange to a pronounced reddish-orange color. The most amazing thing about fire opal gems is that, they can be very transparent. Other opals are opaque or at best, transluscent. Furher, most opals get their color from a color play within the moisture (in the opal). Fire opal, has it's own body color, it does rely on moisture for it's color but, you need no special lighting to see it's glorious colors. You can read the complete report on fire opals at this link. Click here for a comprehensive report on fire opals and some exciting fire opal ring designs.

The above image shows a few color ranges of the fire opal gemstone. It is generally noticed that, the clarity of fire opal gems decreases as the color of the gemstone moves into the deeper orange-red color tones. Moisture (in the gemstone) plays a big role in defining the beauty and liveliness of the fire opal gemstone.

The RG225 is shown here with one of the hottest gemstones in recent years. The fact that tanzanite is mined in just one location in the world, causes the supply to be sporadic and limited. The gemstones if found in a remote hilly area of Tanzania where, miners move hundreds of feet into the earth surrounded by dangers that are partly man made and partly driven by nature. The design of this tanzanite ring with diamonds, surrounds the center marquise shaped gemstone with small diamonds. Besides adding to the beauty of the tanzanite ring, these diamonds also protect the edges of the gemstone from side impact.
