Gold and Silver – A History of Elegance

Gold and Silver: Luxury for Thousands of Years

From Rome, to Ancient Greece, Egypt, Mesopotamia, gold has always been the standard of value. Whether crowning royalty, or adorning elite members of society, it has been in use in every sphere of luxury as a symbol of elegance, status and prestige.

Gold is not the only precious metal to make its mark in the esteem of society throughout history. 

Silver has also staked its claim as true luxury. In certain places and moments in history, silver even outstripped gold in value and status! In modern day, this metal has taken top-billing in the world of modern design – where cooler tones rule and subtle, clean and crisp features dominate the landscape in contrast to the rich warmth and opulence of gold.
