A Brief History of Twisted Silver Hoop Earrings

Silver jewellery also has a long and rich history. Mining of silver started way back in 3000 BC in the ancient mine workings of Turkey and Greece. Once extracted, the metal was refined by a cupellation process which involved heating the metal in a shallow cup over a strong draft, which helped to oxidise lead and copper, but leave silver unaffected. The exploitation of silver mines is credited with being crucial in the rise of Athens, where these mines operated from 600 BC right through until the Roman era.

Along with this, silver was also mined by the ancient civilisations of Central America and South America, such as Peru, Bolivia and Mexico. Sterling silver was extremely popular in America, which continued on to colonial America, where silver was a popular metal to use for belt buckles and coffee pots.
