Historically, silver has sometimes been more valuable than gold. Nothing is whiter, nothing is brighter. Silver and gold can mix in nature, and it’s called Electrum. Valued by the Egyptians, they topped their pyramids with a layer of it. The word ‘silver’ has no rhyme.
Best of all, silver is affordable, and we have all kinds of styles and designs in it. Silver is comfortable, and can be worn in a light weight piece or some with significant heft. Many designers work exclusively in silver, because it has so many great properties. So acquire a hoard and revel in this fabulous metal.
