Why do we love sterling silver jewelry? It’s not just the amazing selection of sterling options available. Many of the properties of silver make it different from other jewelry making materials. If you haven’t tried silver yet, or only use it a bit here and there, you may want to give it a second look. There are a number of reasons stock up on sterling silver.
Sterling Silver Is Ideal for Those with Sensitive Skin
Almost anyone can wear sterling silver jewelry without having an allergic reaction because sterling silver does not contain nickel or lead – two leading causes of skin reactions. It takes only a small amount of these common allergens in jewelry to cause a rash. Creating jewelry without them not only protects the wearer from an unsightly and uncomfortable rash, but it also protects you from liability.
Sterling Silver is an Affordable Precious Metal
While gold and platinum are beautiful, in today’s uncertain economic times, people still want to enjoy beautiful jewelry without making a major investment. Sterling silver is an extremely affordable precious metal. This brilliant metal makes it possible to construct beautiful, lasting, affordable jewelry pieces that come in at a fraction of comparable platinum and gold options. For this reason, oftentimes people buy more, expanding their collection.
Sterling Silver is Low Maintenance
Sterling silver, such as the kind used in Bali beads, is easy to maintain in an airtight box, requiring only the occasional swab with a silver polishing cloth. If maintenance gets away from you, cleaning silver with aluminum foil is a fast, easy trick.
Sterling Silver is Known in the Marketplace
With a universally recognized standard, sterling silver has a reputation as a luxury good alongside gold and diamonds. It doesn’t take much marketing to convince customers of the value of a beautiful sterling silver piece.
Sterling Silver Can Open the Door to New Customers
Because of its affordability, sterling silver allows you to try marketing new designs to a wider customer base. You can more easily target customers in niche markets, from dog lovers to wine aficionados and yoga enthusiasts.
Sterling Silver Allows You to Uncover Your Target Market
With sterling silver, it’s easy to split test pieces, making two of the same design. For instance, one in gold, one in silver. Do customers prefer the pricier gold or the more economical silver variation? With this hard data, you can set yourself up for future success.
Sterling Silver Can Help You Earn Repeat Business
The best customers are the ones that keep coming back for more. This type of repeat business is difficult to earn with pricier precious metals. Sterling silver, on the other hand, allows even the most budget-conscious customers to make repeat purchases and expand their jewelry collection without breaking the bank. It also allows you to create more designs than you could in gold or platinum, widening your selection.
