All that glitters...
For several thousand years, silver has been considered second only to gold as a precious metal and has been used throughout that time for ornamentation, high quality utensils, trade and many forms of currency. Nowadays, the surviving items that have been treasured by so many, not only give us an invaluable, historical insight into society of their day, but provide us with wonderful items of immense and timeless beauty. All that glitters is most definitely not all gold!
