White Heat

Sterling silver shines through a gloomy economy


From classic Italian chain and basic styles to high-end fashion-forward jewelry, sterling silver can be used to create just about any design at lower prices than other precious metals. The addition of 14k and 18k gold or colored gem accents allows you to offer jewelry that’s substantial, fashionable and still affordable.
