19 Silver Styles That
Make a Statement
Silver is coming, and the world is ready to
see more of this multi-talented metal
STORY BY BECKY STONE

Silver’s lightness makes it an excellent material for figural designs, while its affordability means that it can sell whimsical pieces that shoppers might not feel able to justify at a gold or platinum price point. These designs take advantage of silver’s unique properties to convey recognizable figures, from flowers to felines.
