Sterling silver is in fact an alloy of silver and other metals. Using an alloy instead of pure silver makes earrings much more durable. For many years, sterling silver earrings have been hugely popular. Because there are so many styles of silver earrings available, it’s important to think about the size and shape that best suit the wearer’s face and tastes. Sterling silver can be accentuated with color by adding pearls, crystals, acrylic beads, and gemstones. You’ll find that just about any shape of silver earrings goes well with an oval-shaped face. Women with round faces will likely prefer earrings that are elongated or geometric in shape, perhaps with dangling sterling silver pendants. Heart-shaped faces are best enhanced by short, sparkling sterling silver earrings. Dangling and hoop earrings are lovely beside a square face.
Sterling silver jewelry will always be a coveted fashion accessory. Earrings of sterling silver should be stored in tarnish-free bags or cases to be protected from tarnish and scratches. Polishing cloths are an easy way to clean sterling silver jewelry and restore its shine. When sterling silver is worn often and regularly, it is known to develop a beautiful glow that combines with darkened areas for unique look.
