Silver



A bolt of lightning… The glowing orb we call the moon… Light reflecting on the surface of water.

Silver.

The white, metallic luster of silver is brilliant. Matching extremely high optical reflectivity with total receptivity to polishing, the dazzling shine of silver has been the choice of jewelry makers and jewelry wearers for centuries.

Two and a half thousand years ago, Socrates, the Classical Greek Philosopher, credited as one of the founders of Western Philosophy, and often named the “father of medicine” asserted that that silver had beneficial healing and anti-disease properties. Before this, the Phoenicians are said to have stored water, wine, and vinegar in silver bottles to prevent spoiling. Naturally aseptic, evidence of silver and/or silver-alloy surgical and medical instruments has been found in early Roman and Egyptian civilizations. Contemporary use of silver medically includes wound dressings containing silver, increasing in importance due to the increase of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

Nagicia uses highest quality sterling silver, the industry standard, an alloy containing a small percentage of copper to increase it’s durability. Anyone can wear silver, and for many it is the preferred precious metal.
