Sterling Silver is a precious metal cherished throughout history for its beauty, durability and timelessness. Sterling silver is not only durable, robust and beautiful, but also naturally aseptic. For this reason people with sensitive ears or sensitive skin often choose sterling silver jewelry over other types of metals, especially in ear piercings, because of its purity. Sterling silver is also one of the most affordable and versatile precious metals on the market. Additionally, sterling silver is a neutral hue that can be worn on a daily basis or any special occasions with any colors.
