    Talking Quick question : What finish do you prefer on sterling silver?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am requiring some market research on sterling silver finishes.

    For a necklace pendant...

    My question is :

    What finish do you prefer on sterling silver ( a flat sterling silver surface)?

    1) Matt finish
    2) Mirror polish
    3) Brushed effect

    This will be very appreciated results for me.
    Look forward to all your answers !

    Many thanks,

    Sophie

    Tricky question. I like different finishes for different items so it all depends on what I'm making and the style.

    Dear Sophie,

    As with Elaine, the one click approach would not represent a true answer from me. A piece might come out of the tumbler shiny, but if the design calls for it I might frost the back, satin finish the sides and only leave the shine on the front, or a different variation entirely.

    Perhaps we need a fourth category: 'a combination of the above'.

    Regards, Dennis.

    I agree with all of the above. I will add though that my customers seem to prefer textured but shiny.
