For decades and decades people involved precious materials in their lifestyle. These materials were highly associated with wealth and status. The most common precious materials widely used since their discovery are metals such as gold and silver. Nowadays these tend to be used in a variety of methods such as in decorating materials, jewellery and technology.
The use of silver helps to brighten people’s mood and pertains a smoothing effect because that sparkly effect always cheers you up. At times when the weather is so dull and gloomy, and a headache is always knocking on the door, a bit of silver makes you feel like a timeless Snow Queen. Within our society silver is more associated with contemporary styles and has a more cold approach. On the other hand gold is more timeless and traditional and is mostly associated with classic and elaborate styles. It helps to increase that luxury feel and also creates warmth since it comes from the colour scale of orange.
