  1. One of the most popular and precious metals in the UK and across the world, silver is remarkably similar to gold. Associated with success and wealth, silver is also used for a number of houseware and jewellery items! Whilst also being malleable and pliable like gold, silver can be moulded, melted, engraved and set with gems and diamonds; essentially it is a very versatile metal.


  1. Mining of silver started in 3000 BC in ancient mine workings in Turkey and Greece. The metal was refined by a cupellation process which involved heating the metal in a shallow cup over which blew a strong draft of air which oxidised lead and copper and left silver unaffected. The exploitation of the silver mines made the rise of Athens possible, these mines operated from 600 BC right through to the Roman era. Silver was also mined by the ancient civilizations of Central and South America as there were rich deposits in Peru, Bolivia and Mexico.

  1. Sterling silver is made up of copper and 92.5% of pure silver, this is reflected in the 925 sterling silver hallmark stamp. Sometimes 925 may also be marked as 9.25 or .925; all three ways indicate that it is sterling silver. Reputable manufacturers always stamp their creations, the number that is stamped on silver shows the amount of silver per hundred parts (or thousands, in some cases). The higher the number the more silver there is in the product. Pure silver is stamped with a high number like 999 or 99.9.


  1. Sterling silver earrings make a great gift option. Especially with the Christmas season coming up, you’ll want to take a look at our 10mm and 9mm hoop earrings for your loved ones this year.

  1. Sterling silver can be worn in water and are not required to be removed. We don’t recommend ocean or sea water but any other type of water, shower, bath is fine and will not damage or tarnish the earrings. Most precious metals like silver, gold, titanium and stainless steel won’t corrode. However, we don’t advise you to wear your sterling silver jewellery continuously in water or for long periods of time just to be on the safe side.


  1. Gold and silver hoops can be worn by anyone! They are beautifully unisex and suit men, women and gender neutral styles with their timeless, elegant versatility. Whether it’s silver ball hoop earrings, textured hoops, thick silver hoop earrings, tiny silver hoop earrings, or silver sleepers, you can be assured that silver earrings, no matter how unusual, can be worn by everyone.

  1. Like any statement earring, hoops have an ability to draw the eye towards your face, but by being circular in shape they frame your face quickly and easily and are extra complementary to your jaw and cheekbones, defining your features with both the shape and shade they create.


  1. Ear piercings are very popular and common and although they can be less risky than other body piercings, they can still cause complications if not handled safely. For anyone thinking about getting their ears pierced, dermatologists and piercing experts urge people to follow these steps to avoid infection:
  • Always wash your hands before touching newly pierced ears.
  • Leave the earrings in your ears for six weeks or more, even at night. Removing the starter earrings too early may cause the piercings to close.
  • Regularly wash your ears with soap and water. Carefully do this at least once a day to avoid infection.
  • Twist the earrings a few times daily. This will help keep the pierced holes open.
  • Put rubbing alcohol on your ears. Using a cotton ball or pad dipped in rubbing alcohol, gently clean the skin around the piercings twice a day to keep away germs and prevent scabbing. You may also apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly around the opening.

After piercing your ears, keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t get sore, red or puffy and that the holes don’t ooze yellowish liquid. If any of this occurs and doesn’t go away quickly, see a certified dermatologist, or a medical professional as you may have an infection.

  1. You can wear sterling silver to sleep as long as the piece you are wearing is not fragile, delicate or too tight in your ears, around your neck or wrist. As long as you keep the sterling silver dry and clean then you will be fine. We do recommend that you take off your jewellery at night and keep it stored safely to ensure the jewellery stays perfect.


  1. Sterling silver doesn’t rust, but can tarnish. Sterling silver doesn’t have any iron within the metal which is what causes rusting. Sterling silver is alloyed with copper too and can easily be cleaned to remove any tarnishing that happens over time as the silver underneath will still be in good condition.
