Research shows that the Big Bang, although violent, slowly created base and precious metals. The Big Bang theory suggests that through a process of expansion and explosion, hydrogen gas was created, which led to the formation of stars. Their cataclysmic supernova explosions (or deaths) then led to the creation of minerals – including silver. Historically, silver has played a prominent role in the production of jewellery and as currency: from its high value in Egyptian jewellery to its extreme importance as currency in Ancient Greek and Roman societies. At the dawn of history (meaning the part of the past we have written accounts of), silver was used as a currency in Mesopotamia. Not yet as in coins but by weight or in the forms of rings. In fact, silver has been synonymous with the history of money for 5,000 years, and we can trace the economic and monetary history of our past through significant events in silver supply and demand. In many ways, silver’s meaning reaches far beyond the singular piece of jewellery and back to the beginning of creation.
