While we will always be cheerleaders for 22 and 24 karat gold jewelry, sometimes the situation calls for silver! Bright, youthful and fresh, silver is a noble metal with a beautiful luster, bold character and a modern vibe. Pure silver is similar to 24 karat gold in that they are both precious investment metals that have been treasured by humans for millennia. Since pure silver is as soft as pure gold, it is typically mixed with alloys to improve its durability. All of Auvere’s silver jewelry is crafted from sterling silver, which consists of 92.7% pure silver and 7.3% alloys, including copper and zinc. Because copper and zinc cause sterling silver jewelry to tarnish, our sterling silver jewelry is rhodium plated to minimize blackening and comes in a protective pouch. A great way to style your silver jewelry is to mix it in with your daily gold jewelry staples.
