In general, when you’re really looking for a Silver chain that is characteristically strong, it is best to look at its physical attributes and at the chain in the way it has been put together or crafted. In doing so, this comes down to a combination of factors:
The higher the quality, the more it will appreciate as time goes on. The value will also be dictated by the quality of metals that have been added to it. As silver is soft and malleable, it needs high-grade materials in the alloy to stop it from breaking and damaging.
Sterling silver jewellery is a great benchmark for this. You can be sure it will stay strong and hold its value over your lifetime.
Type of silver
There is a wide variety of silver jewellery that can be made. One of the best chains available is the sterling silver necklace. Sterling silver is 92.5% pure silver along with a metal alloy. You can tell if a chain is made from sterling silver by looking at the stamp.
Because pure silver is usually too soft to be made into jewellery, a small amount of nickel is mixed in to keep the silver firm and lustrous. When the nickel seeps out of the jewellery, it comes into contact with the skin and can cause an allergic reaction or can irritate your skin.
