Sterling Silver Jewelry

Sterling Silver Jewelry – The Difference Between Sterling Silver and 925 Silver. … When 92.5% of pure silver is mixed with 7.5% of other metals (often copper, nickel or zinc) the resulting alloy is called sterling silver. To identify it as such, the number 925 is stamped upon the silver, often in a hidden part of the jewellery.

Fake or Real The easiest test to do is to use a magnet. Attractive, shiny metals, such as silver, gold and platinum, are non-ferrous materials, meaning that they are not magnetic. Take a piece of “silver” jewellery and place it near a magnet; if it is attracted to it, then it is not sterling silver. It is stainless steel that is highly polished to look like silver.

But let’s face it silver is the fashion metal that never fades out of trend mewe-jewelry

Engagement rings

History of the Engagement ring

Although the ancient Egyptians are sometimes credited with having invented the engagement ring, and the ancient Greeks with having adopted the tradition, the history of the engagement ring can only be reliably traced as far back as ancient Rome

The mid-7th century Visigothic Code required “that when the ceremony of betrothal has been performed, …, and the ring shall have been given or accepted as a pledge, although nothing may have been committed to writing, the promise shall, under no circumstances, be broken.

In the 20th century, if he could afford it, the typical Western groom privately selected and purchased an engagement ring, which he then presented to his desired bride when he proposed marriage. The online purchase of engagement rings is growing, disrupting the market for the diamonds by bringing greater transparency to an industry that has traditionally relied on opacity.

Stainless Steel Jewelry

Stainless Steel Jewelry 

Stainless steel is best known as the material used to make surgical instruments Stainless steel contains at least 10% chromium and, depending on the grade of the stainless steel, it may include smaller percentages of nickel, molybdenum, titanium, niobium and other metals. The percentage of chromium is significant because chromium combines with oxygen to form a thin, invisible layer of chrome-containing oxide. This protective layer is what makes stainless steel “stainless.” Unlike the title, stainless steel is not actually stainless, just extremely resistant to corrosion. Because many stainless steel jewellery-making supplies are unplated, they are an excellent alternative for wearers with allergies and sensitivity to base metals such as copper or brass. For designs where the findings will be in close contact with the wearer’s skin (especially in the summer-time when heat often exaggerates the reaction to the skin), unplated stainless steel is one of the best options available. Stainless steel Jewellery may contain some nickel, but it’s generally considered hypoallergenic for most people. This is the reason that type 316L stainless steel is often used as starter earrings for newly pierced ears.

Top Grain Leather is the second highest grade because it is split from the top layer of blemished hide then sanded and refinished. This is how they get rid of scars and scrapes and light cow brands. Top grain leather does not age nicely with use. It is strong and durable. Genuine leather doesn’t just mean that the product is made of real leather (which it is), but it also means it is the quality of all products made out of real leather.

The full-grain leather generally comes from better quality hide or skin. In order to retain the quality of the leather, no sanding process is applied. By sanding process, we mean adopting sanding techniques to sand away natural grains from the top of the surface of the leather. Hence, many times, sanding washes out the natural look of the leather. In case of full grain leather, natural look is retained and it is considered as the best leather demonstrating the grain features of the animal from which it was taken. Hence, it ‘tops’ the quality list of the best quality of leather. As far as our bags are concerned, they are made using fine ‘full grain leather’ so as to provide utmost quality bags to our valued customers. We’re, you’ll definitely come back for another shopping with us considering the best quality leather that we use to manufacture our bags. Mewe-jewelry

Sterling silver  Fine silver, for example, 99.9% pure silver, is relatively soft, so silver is usually alloyed with copper to increase its hardness and strength. Sterling silver is prone to tarnishing[1][2], and metals other than copper can be used in alloys to reduce tarnishing, as well as casting porosity and firesale. Such metals include germanium, zinc, platinum, silicon, and boron. Recent examples of alloys using these metals include Argentium, Sterlium, Sterilite, and Silvadium.[3] mewe jewelry uses only the fines sterling silver in it jewellery to produce only Quality pieces see more sterling silver here

Jewelry

The spelling difference extends to jeweler (American English) and jeweller (British and Australian English), as well as to other derivatives such as jeweled–jewelled and jewelingjewelling. But jewel (not jewell) is the standard spelling in all varieties of English.

The simpler, American spelling of the word is part of the legacy of Noah Webster, the early-19th-century educator and lexicographer, best known for his 1831 dictionary, whose attempts to reform the language met with varying degrees of success. He didn’t originate the jewelry spelling, but he was instrumental in making it a part of the American language mostly in Australia we tend to spell it jewellery. but here at mewe-jewelry we are happy either way see more jewelry -jewellery

 

The History of Gold

The History of Gold

Human fascination with gold is as old as recorded history. We don’t know for sure when the first human picked up a gold nugget and thought, “Hey, this is pretty cool.” However, flakes of gold have been found in Paleolithic caves dating back as far as 40,000 B.C.

Most archaeological evidence shows that humans who came into contact with gold were impressed by the metal. Since gold is found all over the world, it has been mentioned numerous times throughout ancient historical texts.

The first firm evidence we have of human interaction with gold occurred in ancient Egypt around 3,000 B.C. Gold played an important role in ancient Egyptian mythology and was prized by pharaohs and temple priests. It was so important, in fact, that the capstones on the Pyramids of Giza were made from solid gold. For me its the love of Gold jewellery that made us start Mew-jewelry
