Silver is a relatively soft, shiny metal. Silver’s history is long. The first evidence of silver mining dates back to 3000 B.C., in Turkey and Greece, according to the RSC. The silver does not react to the air. But the base metals such as lead and copper oxidize and separate from the precious metal. Silver is a soft, ductile, malleable, lustrous metal. It has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity of all metals. Silver is stable in oxygen and water. However it tarnishes when expose to sulfur compounds in air or water to form a black sulfide layer.
Ring is a small circular band, typically of precious metal and often set with one or more gemstones. We wear it on a finger as an ornament or a token of marriage, engagement, or authority. It is key to understand what each finger symbolizes in order to understand where to wear each ring. The most common known symbolism for fingers is the fourth finger on the left hand, which in many cultures is reserved for the engagement ring, and later the wedding ring.
