Silver is one of the most commonly sold metals in the world. In its pure state, it is a rare metal which is valuable and much like gold cannot be effectively used because it is too soft. To make the metal worthy of using in jewelry, cutlery, or showpieces, it is alloyed with copper to create ‘Sterling Silver’. Typically, this alloy is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, giving the material a unique fine luster and polish, while making it hard and resistive to corrosion and heat. This is why you must know the metal before buying discount sterling silver beads for jewelry. Because these beads are used in popular imitation jewelry, there is a high chance that many pieces get mixed in that aren’t silver at all!

The market for such imitation jewelry and fashion jewelry is huge across the world. Because there are so many varieties and shapes in which such beads are made, you must be careful in selecting which ones are going to be market worthy and which ones aren’t. This selection process required two main scrutiny points – the quality of the metal in discount Sterling silver beads, and the shapes which are in trend in the current market. These tricks will help you select the right products –

Company Reputation: If you buy your sterling silver from a small supplier, there is a high chance that other alloys of tin and copper, or steel get mixed into your lot. If you buy from a big supplier with global sales, you can be sure that they will give you the right quality, because global businesses cannot afford sub-standard products.

Metal Matters: Discount Sterling silver beads are still essentially 92.5% silver, and can’t cost too little. If the products’ price tags aren’t rising and falling according to the price of silver in the commodity market, you’re dealing with the wrong supplier. Ensure that you’re dealing with the right people by keeping a regular note on the rise of the price of silver, and a proportionate change in the price of the beads.

Shapes: There are certain shapes of silver beads that sell more than others. For example, tribal shapes from Bali, once handcrafted individually are highly in demand. Today, such beads are cut and crafted in machines, but the design is still extremely popular. Fancy designs like flowers or animals are exquisite, and these beads are extremely well sold items as well.

After understanding how to accurately select discount sterling silver beads from the wholesale market, you can choose to buy online. With a global market reach, online wholesalers can provide you more guarantee of the metal quality, and a large range of designs to select from.
