Benefits of Wearing Sterling Silver Earrings

Earrings are a classic way to tie a look together and make a statement, whether you’re going for something fun and funky or sleek and polished. From women’s pearl earrings to subtle studs to a long drop earring with charms on them, a well-chosen pair of earrings can add a beautiful aesthetic element to any ensemble. While many might immediately opt for gold as their material of choice for jewelry, the rise in popularity of sterling silver has shown the world the amazing benefits of opting to add silver to your wardrobe. 

Cost-Effective

One of the massive benefits of buying sterling silver jewelry is getting incredibly beautiful pieces for a very reasonable price. With the popularity of sterling silver rising across the globe and technological enhancements in the jewelry crafting process, sterling silver is now more affordable than ever and is an amazing alternative to buying gold pieces. When it comes to meaningful gifts or even bridal party accessories, you can’t go wrong with a classic set of pearl earrings on a sterling silver setting or even some classy sterling silver studs.

Hypoallergenic

Another amazing benefit of sterling silver jewelry is that it’s also hypoallergenic - it’s made from 92.5% pure silver, making it much less likely to induce contact dermatitis. In the general population, up to 10% of people are allergic to nickel. In young women, the percentage is actually much closer to 20%, as this group is much more likely to come into contact with accessories and jewelry containing nickel. Nickel allergies can often result in skin irritation and itchiness, but with a beautiful piece of sterling silver jewelry, this is definitely much less of a concern!

Durability

Sterling silver is also an amazing investment when it comes to jewelry because of its incredible durability. With proper cleaning, sterling silver can be long-lasting and passed down through generations as beautiful family keepsakes. With regular polishing and periodic visits to professional jewelers for cleaning, your sterling silver will stay beautiful for the long haul. However, when purchasing your sterling silver, it’s crucial to make sure you’re doing your due diligence and buying pieces made from at least 92.5% pure silver. Anything less might have other metals mixed in, which will have a higher chance of tarnishing and discoloration.
