I've always been fond of silver. I remember when I was in elementary school, my parents bought me silver pendant, chain and ring. Unfortunately I lost them all. My parents also gave me several pieces of gold jewelry, even white gold, but silver has always been my favorite.
My parents said, "Why do you love silver? It tarnishes easily."
True. Yet it makes me to love it more. It's rather fragile, like myself, perhaps. It tarnishes, yet when I put them in a special solution, the stains are gone in a blink of an eye. I am probably like that, too. I often get upset, but when I decide to purify myself, I can feel clean and serene once more. Life's like that, I suppose.
I like the color. It's different from steel, rhodium, white gold, platinum. It's so bright and... somehow... magical.
I still collect silver jewelry. I even wear them around the house. Right now, for instance, I'm wearing silver necklace + "ai" pendant, silver ring with cubic zirconia and an anklet. I even wear them when I'm taking a bath!
