Precious Metals Used in Jewelry

Glamour model with shiny gold jewelry, volume hair

One of the reasons jewelry is so valuable is that it often made using precious metals that are either very rare or very hard to extract. Gold is a popular precious metal. Platinum is a precious metal that is actually worth more than gold. Silver (or sterling silver) jewelry contains 92.5 percent silver. Silverplate jewelry refers to silver jewelry that features a layer of silver bonded to a base metal.
