One of the greatest benefits of sterling silver is that it’s hypoallergenic! While many people are allergic to certain metals, like nickel, sterling silver isn’t likely to cause any problems. Some jewelry may just be silver-plated, though, so look for a label that says “925” or “silver” to make sure it’s solid silver.
Silver has a proven track record as a powerful antimicrobial agent fighting infections and aiding in cold and flu prevention, wound healing, and more.
Silver also helps with internal heat regulation and circulation. Many have reported improvements in energy levels and balance in moods after wearing silver, as its natural properties may offset outside electrical disturbances, improve circulation and overall body temperature balance, and help maintain cleanliness and immunity.
Silver also purportedly keeps our blood vessels elastic, which enables it to play a role in bone formation and healing, as well as skin maintenance and repair.
Whether you believe wholeheartedly in all of silver’s reported benefits or merely enjoy the look of silver and hope it may help with anxiety or another ailment on a smaller scale, there’s no denying that wearing silver jewelry is, potentially, an aesthetically-pleasing way to calm your mind and increase your overall well-being.
With sterling silver, however, you have more than one layer to work with. While you don’t want tarnishing to occur if it does you don’t have to rely on only the outer layer. You’ll be able to remove the tarnish and still have a beautiful piece of jewelry.
