Silver is

a precious metal that has been used in many things from flatware, jewelry, coins

and even as a currency at one point. United States used silver up until the

1970s. 1964 and prior quarters, dimes, and halves were 90 percent silver, 65-70

the Kennedy halves were 40 percent. Silver prices have gone up and down in the

past and present.

a lot of other every day things. Silver is a shiny metal with a white luster

and is considered very malleable and slightly harder then its more expensive

I enjoy

Silver very much both as long term investment and as Jewellery. I have purchased

many Silver items in my day from very reputable companies such as Tiffany and

Co and Cartier. Silver will tarnish but they do make many products to clean

up and polish your Silver. You have to be more careful when wearing any Silver

items because Silver may have chemical reactions to lotions, creams, even body

chemicals can make Silver look less desirable.

You shouldn't

wear Silver jewelry in the swimming pool because chlorine will dull and might

even discolour your Silver jewelry. So in conclusion make sure to do your research

on Silver prices and never be afraid to ask questions about the Silver item

you're buying or investing in.
