Silver has played an enduring role in all ancient cultures. Since it occurs in the elemental form in nature, it was used as the first primitive form of money along with copper and gold. In fact silver was more expensive than gold in Egypt until the fifteenth century BC. Silver coins were the staple of the economy of the Greek and Roman civilizations. In folklore, silver was commonly thought to have mystical powers. A silver bullet was thought to be the only effective weapon against a werewolf, witch or other monsters. In India silver jewellery worn on the body has always been considered a charm to keep away evil spirits.
Silver jewellery was traditionally worn by the rural and tribal people in India. Much of the silver jewellery in India comes from Rajasthan from the Rajputan and Mewar traditions.
