Silver is still the most popular choice when it comes to jewellery not least because of it's good looks but also because there is so much silver jewellery to choose from especially rings. Silver rings are very popular particularly with young people who often wear several silver rings at a time on different fingers. The styles are limitless as are the designs. There are some great chunky urban designs when it comes to silver rings and there are many different textures and finishes that can be achieved. From highly polished, to hammered, etched or engraved, the choice is endless. Oxidised silver is also very popular for that more gothic look and a firm favourite with the Rockers and Heavy Metal fans.
Remember though that silver is a relatively soft metal and pure silver is too soft for jewellery so the alloy Sterling Silver 925 is the standard used for jewellery pretty much everywhere. Silver is not ideal for wedding rings as it really won't stand up to many years of constant wear and tear.
Silver does tarnish and it is worse for some people as the acidity of each individuals skin can affect the ring and make it turn black on the finger. Frequent wear and polishing with a soft cloth should minimise this problem and not spoil the enjoyment of wearing the ring.
