Indian jewelry also consists of flexible and immovable anklets. The ornaments made by joining rings of the metal are flexible. The immovable anklets are like bangles having a space for a leg to fit into it. The Indian jewelry is very old and till now is famed for its design and beautifulness.
While in many parts of the world the possession of jewellery made with precious metals was a reflection of a persons wealth and status in the society, it has today become a normal part of our lives. Though gold may be worn by several women on a daily basis, silver jewellery is more visible due to its affordability. 92.5 sterling silver jewelry is high in demand. 92.5 sterling silver is an alloy of silver in which 7.5 per cent of the mixture is made up of other metals, usually copper, while the remaining 92.5 per cent is pure silver. Also known as the purest form of silver, it is the most feasible for making silver ornaments. Though pure silver can be made into jewels but because it is a very soft metal, the jewel would tend to break easily due to usage. The reason for introducing sterling silver 925 was that ornaments formed from it have greater durability and even if worn on a daily basis, they will not break. They may tarnish due to the presence of other metals in the mixture which react with oxygen, however, cleaning sterling silver jewellery is not a very tedious task.
