My girlfriends are into wearing more sterling silver jewelry nowadays as opposed to flashing their gold and diamond pretty things. The latter are safely stashed away for special occasions only.
Recently, one girlfriend showed off her brand new sterling silver necklace
she bought to celebrate some achievement. Sterling silver jewelry can be just as beautiful though at a fraction of the cost of gold. Best of all is they are not target for snatch-thefts putting the wearer to very much less or even no risk.
Safety first, I say.
...or don't wear at all.ReplyDelete
LOL! I'm sure STP meant the silver jewelry not the clothes. :ODelete
Few hundred ringgit still worth a lot to cause 'heart pain' if being snatched. Agree with STP hahaReplyDelete
Girls will be girls! :DDelete
Silver is good. If not mistaken there is a chinese believe that if wear silver can b a ward against evil spiritsReplyDelete
One can even test poison with silver like in the old days in which food for the Emperors was tested for poison before they can proceed to put food in their mouth.Delete
Found this on Yahoo! Emperors of China used "silver' chopsticks not to show wealth, but for their own protection as well. Emperors would have "food taste testers" however for extra security, the Emperors prefer to use his own silver chopsticks during every meal. Silver chopstick would turn black in the presence of poison, therefore the royal family uses silver chopsticks to prevent assassinations.
As for warding off evil spirits, jade can also do the trick. Jade is believed to also be able to ward off an accident or calamity.
