Silver History

Silver is one of the first metals to be used by human. It may have
been the first metal smelted from ore. The art of silver working dates
back to the ancient Byzantine, Phoenician and Egyptian empires, where
silver was forged into domestic utensils, jewelry, buttons, weapons, horse
trappings, boxes, and other articles.

Unfortunately, silver's high utility meant that items were often melted
down and re-forged into new items. Consequently, much ancient and early
European silverwork has been lost forever. The silver tradition was
carried over to colonial America, where it co-existed with the
centuries-old hand-hammered craft traditions of the North and South American
natives.

The mines in Mexico and Peru are still the highest-producing ones in
the world, and the methods of silver jewelry making among native peoples
remains largely unchanged today. The niche of silver making in Western
society has been a bit more dynamic. Silver's value as a jewelry and
utensil metal made it an early target for ambitious miners, and the
discovery of the Comstock Lode in Nevada in 1859 created a silver rush that
rivaled the Gold Rush.

In recent years, silver has lost much of its value as a reserve metal
and a traded commodity. However, its low price often means it acts as a
leading metal in jewelry fashion - allowing silver craftsmen freedom to
experiment with new and innovative designs, which are later duplicated
in more expensive gold and platinum, once the "style" is safely
established.

Silver is popular among Junoesque and fashion people attempting a
less-formal look in their accessorizing, and among those who simply find
gold and platinum too old-world and ostentatious.
