Silver has been used in jewellery and as currency since antiquity. It was one of the first metals discovered by our ancestors and has since been used to make everything from solar panels to tableware. Still one of the most common uses for silver remains jewellery, due to its high reflective properties. Sterling silver is an alloy of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of another metal, usually copper. This percentage is also where the marking of 925 comes on silver jewellery. This increases silver’s strength and hardness. Silver alongside metals like gold and platinum are considered precious metals. Below we’ve created a list of sterling silver jewellery recommendations. Whether as an everyday accessory or for a formal event, these pieces will become your new favourite.
This ChloBo pair of earrings is casual and youthful. They are a great piece of jewellery to be given as a present or as a treat for yourself. Each hoop features an 8 point star attached to it. Both the stars and the hoops are made of polished sterling silver. If you want to diversify your style, the stars can be taken off so you can wear just the hoops, or for a highly on-trend look, remove just one star and wear them as a mismatched pair.
