2. IT'S TIMELESS
Do you like to keep up with the latest news in fashion and jewelry? We sure do. However, keeping up with the pace of fast-fashion jewelry trends can be overwhelming - and this is where silver becomes your savior. Sterling silver has been popular since the medieval times and it's guaranteed to always be in.
Conclusion: keeping a pair of small hoops or a statement ring in your jewelry rotation is a sure way to make sure you always look on-trend for many years to come.
3. IT'S VERSATILE
Sterling silver jewelry is appropriate no matter what the occasion may be. Spicing up an outfit for your work Gala? Silver. Dressing up a casual dinner with the ladies? Silver. Casual Sunday in the hammock? Silver.
Get it? You might even be able to wear the same pieces for multiple occasions! GOAL! Silver adds a classy touch to any look wherever whenever.
4. IT'S MIXABLE
Maybe you want to add sterling silver to a jewelry collection that already has a lot of gold, stones or other materials. Your silver jewelry is like your pair of black shoes - it goes with everything! Dare to mix it up and create a new image that is uniquely you.
5. IT WON'T GIVE YOU ALLERGIC REACTIONS
Unlike pieces that are made of nickel, brass or other base metals, which can potentially irritate your skin, sterling silver jewelry doesn't contain metal extras that could cause an allergic reaction. This is especially important for accessories like earrings as you can wear them without the fear that a piercing get's infected.
6. IT'S EAST TO CLEAN
If your silver jewelry starts to look a little bit dull, there are easy ways to restore the shine on the piece. After every use, we recommend you to clean your jewelry with a cotton ball or a very soft cloth to remove any dust and dirt that may have landed on the item. Also, gently rubbing the surface of your jewelry with a soft cloth also helps restore shine.
