The Newest Metal

Lately I've been noticing a new trend in jewelry. A new metal has appeared seemingly from nowhere! It is silver colored and sold at jewelry stores everywhere. This metal is lack-lustered (dull) and almost looks like unpolished silver. I've seen it everywhere. In fact, just today I bought a jumper that had this silver-type metal on it's clasps.

What's it called? Honestly, I'm not sure the technical name for the compound. But you will find everyone calling it "dull silver" or "unpolished silver look" jewelry. The metal is a little rougher than silver, and is therefore used for costume jewelry.

Where can you find this jewelry? Check out Claires and Afterthoughts and other chains of jewelry stores that sell inexpensive jewelry.

Adding this new metal to your jewelry collection will perk up your accesory wardrobe. Wear these pieces with gray and make everyone awe at your cute match.

I would suggest you start your collection of this metal with a bracelet. These large items show off more of the metal than a necklace or other pieces and therefore makes the accesory more noticable. It also makes the dull finish look purposeful instead of appearing to be ill-polished earrings.

Check around for this new metal. I guarentee you will find it in jewelry stores near you! It you have any more questions, please feel free to e-mail me at

Thanks for visiting!
