Are you about to propose to your girlfriend?
Have you already bought a silver ring for your wife to be?
Silver rings are what usually men give to their fiancees as engagement rings. While some engagement rings are made of gold or platinum, silver engagement rings are now becoming popular because of their complexity and affordability.
Why Choose a Silver Engagement Ring?
Other couples prefer gold or platinum rings, but some brides also love the white colored jewelry that can be matched in any colors and in any clothes. And while Platinum can do this, silver jewelry gives the same effect at a more affordable and more practical price. So the choice boils down to both the design and the cost of the engagement ring.
A silver metal is soft and malleable and therefore can be bent and tweaked easily. The malleability of this metal makes it flexible for crafting intricate designs to produce elegantly made silver rings. Even other gold silver rings are decorated with silver that has fine details, giving a two-colored ring that gives a more complex design. So if you want a ring that is designed with fine details, silver rings have many of this for you to choose from.
Cost of the Ring
In general, silver is less costly than the gold metal. However, the price of silver rings isn’t just based on the type of metal. Others have intricate designs, and the labor cost for finely designing the ring adds more value to it. And because of this, other silver rings with complex details have higher values than plainly designed gold rings.
The seen may fade when exposed to air for a long time. But the shine can be back again when cleaned and maintained.
How do you maintain this kind of ring?
Maintenance Care for Silver Rings
Silver rings are relatively softer than other metals, so it is better to place it in separate storage from other metals to avoid nicks and scratches.
Even the fine ones can be a victim of discoloration when exposed to certain corrosive chemicals such as ammonia and bleach, so better avoid having your silver ring in contact with these chemicals. Also, the seawater can also cause damage to silver rings, so if you go on swimming at the sea, collecting seashells, or playing with sand and water by the shore, remove the ring from your finger first before engaging in these activities.
Tarnishing is prone to silver rings and jewelry, as it naturally reacts with sulfur in the air. Though tarnishing is unavoidable in silver jewelry, it is better to wear it regularly with your usual get-up to prevent the building up of tarnish onto it, than to just let it stay in one place. Also, maintain the sheen of your silver ring by cleaning it using a polish and a soft, clean cloth.
Because of its malleable property, you can find more intricate designs on silver engagement rings than on other metals such as gold and platinum.
