Silver jewelry is the perfect gift for any occasion, from birthdays to holidays. Select the receiver’s favorite gemstone or color for a more personal touch.

One of the more popular looks of silver jewelry is filigree, an ancient handcrafted technique that consists of twisted threads of silver that are soldered together to create beautiful jewelry.

What Is Silver?
Silver is a natural element that is found in limited quantities. The metal's color is so distinctive that "silver" is used to describe not just the precious metal itself but many objects that are similar in tone and color. For jewelry, sterling silver can be used in many different ways, and the pieces in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry collection incorporate it in a variety of fashions.
Fine Versus Sterling: What's the Difference?
There are two main types of silver used in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry collection: sterling silver and fine silver. Fine silver is 99.9 percent pure, making it the more expensive of the two. More delicate but richer in its color, fine silver can be used for many different jewelry designs. Sterling silver is an alloy that is 92.5 percent pure. The rest of the content of the metal comes from another metal, which is typically copper. Although its color is not as pure and rich as genuine silver, sterling silver is more economical and stronger than fine silver.
