Silver, the New Gold

Gold and platinum have been around forever as the go-to metals for jewelry. Everyone likes the idea of getting a diamond engagement ring set in these two metals because it shows a certain sign of wealth and stature.

But, due to the fact that gold and platinum are traded commercially in the financial markets, the prices fluctuate up and down when the markets are up and down. Right now, and it has been noted, that the price of gold has soared more so than the other precious metals since 2008 when the financial markets crashed. The markets are still trying to navigate their way to coming back to where they were. It’s a sign of people’s anxiety about the future that even as the Dow set an all-time record today, gold prices remain 100% higher than in 2008.

In the mean time, a girl still has to have her jewelry, right? So this is where silver comes in. Silver is the new gold. You find it everywhere, from engagement rings to beautiful tennis necklaces. Bracelets with semi -precious stones and colored cubic zirconia are all the rage now. If you think diamonds come in every color, you should see the colors they have in cubic zirconia!! And, some silver jewelry comes rhodium plated so it stays shiny all of the time. No tarnishing. That’s incredible!!

Do you know what’s even better? You can buy gold-plated silver now, too, so if you like the look of yellow gold, but can’t afford it, you can have gold-plated silver and no one knows but you. So, if you are thinking of buying someone a gift, or if you just want to treat yourself, silver is the way to go.
