Mens Sterling Silver Jewelry
The popularity of sterling silver dates back to the Egyptian times when decorative objects were designed mostly for religious purposes. Silver started being mined in Turkey back in 3000 BC but Silver was rare and was considered 'white gold', mostly utilized by the wealthy and many old burials have been found with precious silver items.
It was the American Indians of New York that first turned silver coins into jewelry in the 17th century.
Sterling Silver is 92.5% silver and 7.25% copper and remains highly popular today for all jewelry including men's sterling silver jewelry because of the shine, ease of wear, resistance to tarnishing and durability as well as the cost.
