If you’re expecting or a new mom, chances are a lot of your income will be going to the cost of raising your baby.
Expectant and new moms who are used to wearing fine jewelry may have to table their urge to splurge but there are other options: silver jewelry is one!
I personally prefer silver jewelry to gold and other more expensive metals anyway.
By way of background, sterling silver, which is an alloy of silver is used to make most of the available silver jewelry. On its own, silver is too brittle and malleable to be formed into anything.
That may be why thicker pieces like Bangles are are faves and is being worn by men even.
Here are a few other factorsto keep in mind when buying silver bangles.

The best form of caring for your silver bangles is by wearing them often. When you wear your bangles, oils from your skin helps protect them from reacting with air to form another layer on the silver surface.
When not on your wrist, it is important that you keep your silver bangles locked up.
Put them in an airtight container. Ensure that it is clean and well shut.
Also, ensure that your bangles do not touch other jewelry to avoid rusting.
Proper maintenance ensures that your silver bangles will last long and keep their shine for a long time.

When measuring your hand, measure at the the tips of your fingers while your thumb touches your pinkie finger. This ensures that it will be easy to wear and it will fit perfectly.
When you wear a large bangle, it will be uncomfortable as you will always feel as if it is falling off. It will distract you and lead to you getting some undue attention. Further, like every other bangle, ensure that it is not too tight.
