Since its discovery about 5 000 years ago, silver has been regarded as valuable. This shiny precious metal, first mined in Turkey, have continued to mesmerize human beings over time. It was easily mined, fairly plentiful and non reactive enough to use as coinage, but rare enough to have, and keep, its value. Silver is ductile and can be stretched into a strand thinner than a human hair. It is malleable and loved by artists for its ability to be shaped into amazing art.
Even today, silver still has a special allure. Silver and silver compounds are used in various applications such as solar panels, water filtration, high-value tableware and utensils photographic film and X-rays, disinfectants and other medical instruments.
Pure silver is too soft for products like jewelry and tableware, so the valuables around today are most likely sterling silver, an alloy of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent copper.
A special characteristic of silver is that it is shiny. Silver can achieve the most brilliant luster of any metal. And it is this feature that continues to make it popular in jewelry. It is this trait that makes it timeless! Us humans like shiny things!
When Daniel Wellington brought out their new range of watches in metal colour, my heart melted. The Range is called Classic Petit! The gorgeous Daniel Wellington Sterling design stole my heart. And then I saw their accessories and the matching silver colour cuff. Elegant, shiny and minimalistic, the perfect pairing with the Daniel Wellington Sterling watch. See here how beautiful the watch and the cuff pair.
Daniel Wellington is the Swedish watch brand started by Filip Tysander in 2011. Daniel Wellington became well known for their colourful NATO straps, but as trends change, they brought in leather straps and now the metal colours. There is the rose gold colour and the silver colour. The Daniel Wellington watches are stylish and modern with a minimalistic feel. The straps are interchangeable. And best of all, they are affordable.
With silver on my heart, I went to see what other special silver things I can find to pair this gorgeous Daniel Wellington Sterling watch with.

3. Jack Daniel’s Silver Select
A gorgeous Tennessee whiskey from Jack Daniel’s, it has plenty of rich sweetness with notes of custard apples, banana and caramel, balanced with stewed fruit, citrus, black pepper and toasted oak. Lots of complexity and simply delicious. Each barrel is aged in a different location within the warehouse for better maturation.
