Silver and Gold: The Dynamic Duo of Jewellery Making

Silver and Gold: The Dynamic Duo of Jewellery Making

Welcome to the shimmering showdown between two of the most beloved metals in the jewellery world – sterling silver and gold! At Boujee Ice, we're all about sparking joy with our sparkling gems, but let's take a moment to appreciate the unsung heroes: the metals themselves.

Sterling Silver: The Versatile Virtuoso

Sterling silver, a star in its own right, is an alloy made up of 92.5% silver and a mere 7.5% of other metals, usually copper. This blend is what gives sterling silver its superpowers: strength and durability, without compromising its signature luster. It's like the gymnast of the jewellery world – strong, flexible, and oh-so-shiny!


  • Affordability: Your wallet will breathe a sigh of relief.
  • Versatility: Silver plays well with a range of styles, from boho chic to black-tie glam.
  • Cool Tone: It's like the metal equivalent of a crisp, winter morning.

Gold: The Timeless Treasure

Moving on to gold – the classic, the timeless, the epitome of luxury. Gold in jewellery is usually an alloy too, mixed with metals like copper or zinc to enhance its strength. Think of it as the wise sage of metals, boasting a history as rich as its color.


  • Durability: It's the superhero of metals, resistant to rust and corrosion.
  • Prestige: Wearing gold is like having a VIP pass to the world of glamour.
  • Warm Hue: Gold's color is like a summer sunset, full of warmth and depth.

Care Tips:

  • Silver Care: Keep it away from harsh chemicals and store it in a cool, dry place. A little polish with a dry jewellery cloth now and then doesn't hurt either!
  • Gold Care: It's low-maintenance but loves a gentle cleaning with mild soap and water then polish with a dry jewellery cloth.

In Conclusion: Whether you lean towards the understated elegance of sterling silver or the opulent allure of gold, both metals bring their unique strengths and styles to the table. At Boujee Ice, we celebrate the diversity and beauty these metals bring to our jewellery, ensuring there's something for every taste and occasion.

Stay tuned for our next sparkling discussion, and remember, whether it's silver or gold, it's all about adding a little (or a lot) of shine to your life!
