Guide to Shopping for Sterling Silver Jewelry Online

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2008

When shopping online, you may find width measurements noted in either inches or millimeters. It’s important to understand the two and how they translate in order to make sure you are getting the perfect piece of jewelry. A 1/4″ bracelet or necklace may be listed as 6mm, while a 1/2″ design may be noted as 12mm. A 3/4″ style equals 18mm, while a 1″ width may also be described as 24mm wide. It helps if you have a ruler that gives measurements in both inches and millimeters, which will help you to instantly visualize the width of an item as you shop online.

If you are already a lover of sterling silver, then you have probably come to recognize the affordable nature and intricate jewelry designs available for purchase. If you are a beginning collector or are simply looking to build an impressive jewelry wardrobe without spending a fortune, sterling silver jewelry may be your answer. Because it is less expensive than gold, wearers can enjoy a bold presence at a fraction of the cost. Whether you are in the market for a simulated diamond, other gemstone recreation or you prefer genuine gems, you will find it all in sterling silver. If you are searching for a clean look that offers nothing more than a fantastic all-metal design, you will find an equally impressive product line in this popular and precious metal.
