Fine silver tends to be very soft, and it generally can't be fashioned into jewelry on its own. Sterling silver is a type of silver to which other alloys -- such as copper, germanium, zinc, or platinum -- have been added. These added alloys improve the strength of the silver and increase its resistance to tarnishing, while preserving its appearance. Our Native American silver necklaces are designed for the finest sterling silver quality and longevity.
Sterling silver originated in Europe to be used as currency in the 12th century, after which its purity was slowly regulated by kingdoms such as England as time passed on. Sterling was widely used in Colonial America as currency, and gained popularity as cutlery in the late 19th century and early 20th century, but then began to wane in popularity around World War II when labor costs rose and simpler machine-made pieces came into favor. Native American tribes learned the art of silversmithing from Spanish explorers, and have been perfecting the fine art of silver jewelry creation for more than a century.
