Sterling silver is a white-grey colored metal which is less expensive than gold, platinum, and titanium.

Silver is a softer metal than gold, titanium, and platinum and does not have the hardness that the other metals do.

Silver is a popular metal for use in jewelry such as earrings, pendants, bracelets, necklaces and dress rings. It is best used for jewelry that will not be worn every day for an extended period. For that reason, it is usually not recommended to be chosen for ladies and men's wedding rings and is not suitable for ladies engagement rings.

Silver is also more prone to oxidization, sometimes causing the silver to turn black. The silver jewelry can easily be made to look like new again if you use a silver jewelry cleaner (available from most department stores) or if you have your jewelry cleaned by a local jeweler.
