Art of Buying Silver Jewelry
Silver is the queen of metals: gleaming and elegant, cool to the eye, sensuous to the touch. Silver jewelry is a classic gift that remains close to a woman's heart. More than merely decorative, it often carries
with it the appeal of a tender sentiment or a lovely memory. And it possesses a sophistication that every woman understands.
However, in selecting silver jewelry for herself, a woman should not forget that men place a high value on silver themselves. For that special man the perfect gift in silver might be a handsome pair of sterling silver cuff links, a tie bar, an I.D. bracelet, or even a signet ring. For a man, silver is a gift of distinction.
Make sure there are no visible blemishes or imperfections on the piece. Check to make certain that fasteners, clasps and catches work properly
and are secure. Check pin backs and earring posts for strength and durability. Lay silver chains flat to make certain their links don't kink
