My Aluminum Memories are created for those who are looking to stay within a budget but want the silver look. My aluminum discs are thick and sturdy and can be double-sided stamped. Aluminum is becoming more popular with jewelry as the sterling silver price keeps rising. Aluminum is completely safe for the skin and actually has a lower skin reaction rate than with sterling silver. Many of my sterling silver pieces are now offered in aluminum. I am also offering a silver plated chain option to keep the pricing lower. I hope you enjoy my aluminum memories as much as the sterling memories!
