The Psychology of Silver
Throughout history, silver has been a special color. In ancient times, it was a sign of wealth, superstition, and magic. It was also associated with healing and chivalry, and has been used in symbolism for many religions, organizations, and even family crests over the years. Silver is associated with honesty and clarity: because many types are reflective, it is considered a mirror into a person’s soul. People who wear silver are therefore thought to be more trustworthy and distinguished. Silver is also considered a clean and pure color, thanks to the metal’s antibacterial properties and consequent use in sterile environments like kitchens and hospitals. In folklore, silver was used as a way to combat evil and supernatural devils like spirits, werewolves, and vampires. It is often used in churches and on monuments and statues that are thought to protect buildings or cities. Silver was used on weapons and was believed to give them more power, making the soldiers and knights wielding them stronger and more fearless.
Modern Uses of Silver
In modern times, silver is still seen as a powerful color due to its association with wealth. It's used in luxury vehicles, jewelry, seasonal decorating, and wear for special occasions. More commonly, it is a popular color for home décor because it’s considered a neutral color and can be used with many themes and other colors. Silver is often used as a secondary accent, but can easily stand on its own, too. As a result, it is an oft-seen color for light fixtures, faucets, cabinet and furniture hardware, and even picture frames.
Silver in Jewelry
Of course, it is still a popular color for various types of jewelry. People who wear it are thought to be bold, successful, and outgoing. Silver looks good with all skin tones and creates a modern or even futuristic look.
