Silver or Gold – Which Is The Best For You

Sunday, 12 June 2011

Silver or GoldWhen pros and cons of silver and gold are discussed, it can go for ages. Some people vote for the high class and nobleness of gold and the others praise the young nature and airy laced beauty of silver. Nevertheless, the third party is still in search and the subject of discussion, whether gold or silver better to wear in jewels, is still under discussion.

In accordance with the historic data gold was first used in the jewelry industry while the chemistry highlights the stability and solidity of silver as the second metal yielding to gold only. The economics states on the higher difference between the costs for these two noble metals. And today fashion also faces the dilemma which metal is better to choose, the cold glimmering silver or warm gold.

Gold, its advantages for those who prefer it

Over many centuries the gold was associated with power and wealth. Gold is the metal to relate to kings, conquerors and merchants. Jewelers respect the gold for its flexibility when processed, solidity and glittering shine. Gold is perfectly matched with various precious stones and gems and can be enjoyed for many years as a jewel.

Apart from the attractive look, gold can boast with some healing features. It is widely used in homeopathy, in treatment of heart and joint diseases. The Oriental study attributes the positive «Yan» energy to gold, as the power of the Sun and strong men, vivacity and good emotions and active movements. Thus, gold is recommended in jewelry for those who suffer from permanent fatigue, low blood pressure and depression since the gold gives the power and energy of the Sun to the one who has it. They say that gold accessories are designed for mature solid people while the younger generation looks appropriate with other jewels. However, it’s habitual to present thenewly married with golden accessories. The couple exchanges with golden rings as the sign of strong and eternal love; gold jewelry is gifted to beloved and folks with the wishes of prosperity and sympathy.

Gold is ideal for people falling into the category of spring-fall type of looks with the complexion from tender peach hue to the golden beige, light eyes or green eyes with hazel gloom, hair of the tender nuances of the honey to vivid red. The shades of gold can be expressed from yellow to pink and white.

Silver, its advantages for those who prefer it

Silver is the second precious metal yielding to gold only in regards to stability and price but not beauty at all. It is not feasible to define which metal is more gorgeous since silver looks like platinum in appearance which is more expensive than gold. Jewelers often work with silver making whole accessories ad also it is used to frame precious stones and gems but there is a restriction. When framing stones like pearl or amber, the silver favorably sets off their color and adds more value to them, though it is the wrong metal to game with bigger diamonds of fancy color.

As compared with the gold, silver is known for higher healing characteristics. It perfectly disinfects the drinking water saturating it with its ions which is wholesome for the human health. Not without reasons the Christians refer to silver when making charms either under icons worn on the neck with peculiar inscriptions designed to protect the owners from diseases and adverse factors. In Oriental countries silver is the negative energy «In», a female power, night moon and fertile lands. This precious metal is good for people permanently experiencing overdrive and irritability. The silver has the sedative and quenching effect which is sometimes good for the expressive youth.   

By the appearance type silver accessories are appropriate for people of winter and summer type of complexion with porcelain-looking skin with some rouge, dark-blonde hair, or with some grey hair.

Silver is distinguished for its importunity and modesty. Silver massive bracelets, earrings and chain necklaces worn in layers do not look ridiculous or vulgar as it is when such jewelry is made from gold. However, silver is rather the accessory of the daytime since it ideally complements the business wear or every day wear. Moreover, the design of silver jewelry is beautiful and looks as lacework not yielding but sometimes excelling those from gold. The myth that silver is cheap metal among the noble materials to be used to manufacture bijouterie is just the myth. Silvernicely goes with white diamonds, though. The brand «Hot Diamonds» from England offered collection of accessories made from .925 silver incrusted with the scatter of diamonds with the price range as hundred times as less of the similar golden rings, earrings, bracelets and pendants. Silver is the great alternative for the admirers of lavish jewelry.

There is something that can make people opt for this or that metal, in particular allergy reaction. No person suffers from allergy to pure metals. In most cases the alloy matter when they are added to precious metals to make them lighter as nickel. When copper, aluminum, chrome and other metals are added, and then fancy colors or special rigidity is achieved. So, you’d better purchase the expensive «alloy» with the safe palladium and avoid the cheap and hazardous trinkets with poor quality coating, or trace latest achievements in the sphere of metal blending by the famous designer brands. So, the Spanish jewelry brand AS&AS creates unique jewels combining gold and silver in spite of saying they are not compatible. Flexible silver shows the smooth and laced work while the gilding is like the sun beams on accessories.

So, what to get for you, silver or gold jewel? It is the everlasting choice between them. But again, when getting any jewelry, people tend to estimate how the lavish golden or silver masterpiece evokes positive emotions but not how it is useful for healing features. And the point is that any jewelry should bring joy and satisfaction when wearing but not keeping in the box.
