Silver Jewelry For Men

If you’re a man who likes jewelry, you may find yourself with a lack of options. Women’s jewelry is full of amazing gemstones and precious metals forged into gorgeous designs. Yet by and large, the options for men’s jewelry comes down to a basic band or a simple chain.

Given that, it requires a little more work to properly accessorize. It can be done, but you have to know how to do it. This is why custom made silver jewelry for men is the best option.

What makes silver jewelry so much better than other options? Because men’s jewelry can be quite heavy at times, doing some of these items in white gold is not very cost efficient nowadays.

While women’s jewelry styles can large and gleaming in many collections, men’s jewelry tends to be understated. It seems to, for the most part, accentuate but not draw attention. Some of my clients just love to have something more elaborate.

That’s a difficult thing for gold to do, since gold is quite noticeable. Gold is tends to draw more attention, and even when it doesn’t people have an inherent idea that gold is expensive and luxurious and as such it draws naturally draws the eye.

Silver jewelry, by contrast, doesn’t draw attention in nearly the same way. The silver coloring, even when it’s properly polished and gleaming, still doesn’t draw the eye the same way as a bright golden color will. In addition, silver jewelry tends to come with lighter colored gemstones, when it comes with gemstones at all. This means you’re more likely to see sapphires and pearls than you are emeralds and rubies.

The lighter colored gemstones go well with just about any colored suit a man is liable to wear, but especially black suits. And when you want to look your best, chances are you’re going to be wearing a black suit.

As things pop into my head, I just them down and sometimes it doesn’t flow right on paper or my blog lol.

But check this out, and hopefully it helps to understand why custom work is expensive. My ‘brother’ Aaron.

But where can you find good silver jewelry for men? In truth, you can often find some of the best jewelry online and at pawn shops. It’s true that there are plenty of jewelry stores that will have a few pieces. But the internet will give you a wider selection. You can find a huge variety just by checking online. And pawn shops will generally sell jewelry for quite cheap. It may be used, but all you have to do is clean it up and it looks great. Silver jewelry tends to keep amazingly well if it’s maintained properly.

Given all of that, there’s not much better than silver jewelry for men. It can help you look fantastic and understated, just as a man should be.

I’ll single out Alibaba at this time. They’ve got more independent wholesalers for bulk silver buyers than anywhere in the world. You’re getting mass production if buying from here.

Definitely not the hand crafted Navajo styled goods that you get when buying from guys like me.

When buying silver jewelry online ensure that you buy sterling silver jewelry. Sterling silver is almost always marked with the number โ€˜925โ€™, which is the highest quality of silver that you can buy either offline or online in jewelry form.

Keep in mind that sterling silver has no grades such as low quality sterling silver or high quality sterling silver. It only comes in one quality, which is sterling silver. The cost of the piece should be largely determined by the weight of the sterling silver used.

The only instance where this does not apply is cases where the piece is hand-made, whereby it will cost considerably more than similar pieces that arenโ€™t hand-made.

Always remember that silver jewelry will tarnish whether it is sterling silver or not. You need to clean and polish your silver jewelry regularly to ensure that it retains its shine. In the market, you will find many different brands of silver polish that you can use to accomplish this. You need to plan to clean your silver jewelry every single week.

Items that you wear will resist tarnish much better than unworn silver jewelry.

Buying your silver jewelry wholesale is the best way to go. Silver is relatively inexpensive even at wholesale prices. When buying silver jewelry, the quality of silver should not be your main concern but just make sure that it is sterling silver. The stones and settings used in your piece should be your main concern.

Ensure that your piece has a solid construction and you must ensure that the gems used in the piece are not simulated gems unless it is your desire. Obviously, where real gems such as diamonds are used to make the pieces, the cost of the jewelry will rise considerably. However, as long as you are buying the jewelry wholesale, the price is still the lowest you can find.

One final benefit of buying your silver jewelry wholesale is that you can even start a business. You can even start buying jewelry online cheaply and sell it to your friends for a profit. In the end, you just might become the biggest jeweler in the country.

Note Of Caution

When buying silver jewelry online, it is possible to stumble upon suppliers that are less than honest about whatever they are selling. Ensure that the supplier you choose can either produce documentation of what they are selling or can attest whether or not the products are genuine. However, most silver jewelry wholesalers are genuine and are not out there to defraud you of your heard earned money.

Indian Silver Jewelry Facts

Silver jewelry pieces made by the Pueblo Indians of the Southwestern United States are usually set with turquoise stones and pieces. The lovely fashion pieces which include brooches, rings, necklaces and bracelets are sold to discriminating buyers around the world. Silver and turquoise jewelry is not inexpensive since both the silver settings and the turquoise stones can be quite valuable.

Isaac Coriz Designs:

Although the most common stone used in silver Southwestern jewelry is turquoise, other stones that are often combined with turquoise include coral, malachite, onyx and lapis. Small pieces of these stones are sometimes combined to create beautiful, intricate designs in the silver settings. Coral is available in varying shades of pink, lapis is blue, malachite is mostly green and onyx is black. These colors along with the turquoise allow for a wide variety of intricate designs.

Anyone who has walked through a flea market or trade show has seen vendors selling many kinds of silver jewelry at quite a reasonable price. While these pieces are sold as genuine, the potential buyers should know they are probably not authentic. Natural turquoise is becoming scarce, so imitation stones are often set in silver that is of lower quality. However, there is a market for these knock-off pieces since the buyer may not be aware or even care their jewelry is merely a good imitation.

Find the artists and buy originals…

One way a potential buyer of silver Indian jewelry can make sure the pieces they find are genuine is to visit one of the Southwestern states where Indians sell their creations. While these areas are great vacation destinations, it is also very possible to find authentic
