Some women may already be jewelry connoisseurs, but some others may not. Chances are if you're not, you haven’t had the chance to experience fine Italian jewelry. Individuals that do not wear jewelry often or don’t own much may not understand all that it can offer. Perhaps it was gifted and possesses sentimental meaning or perhaps you eyed it online for days, weeks, or months before pulling the trigger. Once Italian silver jewelry has made it to your collection - you will start to uncover all the ways to wear it. For certain pieces you can skimp out and buy knock off versions, but for jewelry you intend to own for years to come, invest in quality silver jewelry made by Italeau.
Fine silver is 99.9% pure silver. In this form the metal is beautiful and suffers from minimal tarnishing, but it's generally too soft and malleable for many uses, including making most silver jewelry. Instead, sterling silver, which is 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper, is referred to as .925 silver and hallmarked with a 925 stamp. Handmade Italian sterling silver earrings are without a doubt an excellent, high quality choice. The metal will not rust or easily damage, and if you look after your silver earrings, they will continue to look great for many years. You could even pass them on to future generations. In addition, those with sensitive skins are unlikely to suffer allergic reactions from .925 sterling silver, unlike with other metals. Plus, it has a much lower cost than gold and platinum, which means being able to invest in lots more top quality silver jewelry. Like gold, handmade Italian .925 silver earrings will maintain their value over time and maybe even increase in value. On top of these benefits, having handmade sterling silver in your jewelry collection will add to its timeless style, value, and versatility.

Silver earrings combine two things we love - silver and earrings! Silver is one of the most precious metals on planet earth today, and for good reason. Additionally, earrings are arguably the most essential piece of jewelry in an outfit. Since ancient times, earrings have made women feel pretty, fashionable, and trendy. Plus, if you have sensitive skin, silver jewelry is a must since they are hypoallergenic. About 10% of people are allergic to brass, nickel, and other metals used to complement gold. Therefore, if you have sensitive skin and are worried about adding jewelry to your repertoire, silver should be your first stop (note: silver earrings by Italeau are sterling silver and have rhodium plating - therefore they are absolutely safe for sensitive skin!).

Unfortunately, real silver does naturally tarnish. But, that's just how real it is. With proper care you can keep your silver earrings looking new for years to come. Exposure to gasses in the air, specifically sulfur, can cause silver to discolor and darken as a reaction.
In addition, items like hand creams, perfumes, soaps, makeup, swimming pool chlorine, and the PH from your skin can tarnish silver jewelry. If you want to avoid tarnish on your favorite jewelry pieces, consider cleaning often and always treating them with care.
As you know, jewelry is delicate, so it’s important to treat it with care. Here are some rules on how to best care for silver jewelry.
Avoid jewelry pieces rubbing up together (careful storage is key)
Avoid contact with harsh chemicals (Getting your hair done? Take your silver earrings off.)
Store and travel with silver earrings in small soft pouches
Do your best to store jewelry away from humid spaces such as the bathroom
Clean regularly and wipe down after each use
To clean your silver jewelry, you don’t need anything fancy. Simple soap and water should do the trick. Also, use a soft bristled brush like an old toothbrush to get into the crevices where grime builds up. When you’re done cleaning with soap and water, rinse with water and pat dry. If you’re looking for an upgraded method, consider ultrasonic cleaners.
You can find these online at Amazon or at other big box retailers; to use them simply follow the instructions. Do note that if you go for an ultrasonic cleaner, it can damage soft and delicate stones, so it’s important to be careful. Last, for silver jewelry, you might use “silver dip.” This can allow you to remove the tarnish that sticks to even the trickiest-to-reach spots. You can find several good varieties online, and like ultrasonic cleaners, you’ll have to be careful with soft stones and delicate finishes.
Using sterling silver earrings to dress up an outfit is fairly straightforward. The easiest way to tell if your earrings fit better with a casual or a formal look, is what size they are. Although this isn’t a hard and fast rule, it is a general rule of thumb. Long dangly earrings are perfect for a romantic or special night out, but may not be the best choice for a visit to the supermarket. By contrast, small and sleek classic studs are perfect for daywear. You can stack studs and climbers in multiple pierced ears. Sterling silver earrings are ideal for building up the boho style - match an array of earring shapes, colors and sizes with flowing, long dresses and wide pants.
Building a jewelry collection is like building your wardrobe; it takes some strategy and thought. Collect pieces that are timeless and can go with a variety of outfits to maximize the value.
Although earrings aren’t necessarily usually the center point of an outfit, they can definitely help tie the entire look together. It’s important not to “overdo” it on jewelry - but the definition of that can vary depending on personal tastes. Jewelry is a fun way to express ourselves, so if you love it - rock it! Silver is known for its elegance so as you style it think of your outfit as having one “focal point” like a piece of art.
You should also consider your face shape when determining the style of silver earrings you are interested in.
Round-Shaped Face = To elongate your face, focus on long, dangling styles and avoid rounded earrings.
Heart-Shaped Face = Those with a heart-shaped face should look to earrings that are wider at the bottom - like teardrops - for the most flattering look.
Square-Shaped Face = The best earrings for this face-shape include rounded, curved styles and flowing shapes to help soften strong jawlines
Diamond-Shaped Face = For this face shape studs and chandelier earrings work nicely!
Oval-Shaped Face = If you have this face shape you are lucky as it is the easiest to dress! Almost all styles will flatter your face, just try avoiding anything with too much of a drop so it doesn’t elongate the face too much.
Silver earrings are best paired with cool colors or dark shades like black and navy blue because it provides a contrast that is pleasant to the eye and brings out the shine of the silver.
Avoid pairing your silver jewelry with neutral colors. Too, warmer colors are typically better suited for gold jewelry. Last, avoid wearing silver jewelry with a mutli-colored dress.
Silver jewelry can be worn at any occasion, location, or during any season! One of the best parts about fashion is that nowadays there really are no rules. Express yourself freely and wear what makes you feel good, regardless of the time of year.
Have you ever noticed that trends go in cycles? Welcome back silver hoop earrings and flared pants - we see you. Silver earrings are dominating Spring and Summer 2023 trends.
