Silver has been a widely sought material for nearly 5,000 years when the people of modern-day Turkey began mining for the substance. It was used as currency and gave the possessor a great deal of bargaining power, especially during the spice trade. When trade became more widespread, there was a great need to possess silver in order to obtain the items you needed most.
As technology and resources improved, more people were able to mine and search for silver. Now, nearly 671 million troy ounces are mined and produced each year!
Here at Bon Vivant Antiques, you can find a variety of silver pieces including antique silverware, jewelry and much more. Be sure to stop in often to view the newest additions to our collection.
