Diamonds are popular and well-known as the go-to engagement stone. A clear diamond’s incredible sparkle makes the gemstone ideal for making jewelry. Its 10 score on the Mohs hardness scale—the hardest natural stone on Earth—makes it an excellent industrial tool. Humans have used diamonds in drilling from at least 2000 BC. The Chinese even saw it as the “jade cutting knife”. In fact, many if not most of the other cut stones you see have been shaped and polished by diamonds.
Silver has antibiotic properties, it has the highest electrical conductivity of any metal, and of course, silver is incredibly malleable and polishes to a lustrous shine, making it ideal for jewelry. Jewelry has traditionally been made of Sterling silver, composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper. This metal mixture, or alloy, maintains its form better than the relatively soft pure silver, doesn’t tarnish as easily, and has a higher melting point, making it good for tea pots and cookware as well.
