Yes, our earrings are 100% waterproof and non tarnish. They're made with 316L stainless steel which won't rust or tarnish with exposure to water.
Earrings are an essential part of jewellery styling and the most common item of jewellery someone will have. It’s for good reason, they are easy to wear and a stylish accessory for all styles. Not everyone has ear piercings but those who do rarely go back to not wearing earrings after they start. Earrings can either be elegant and traditional in their design or modern and artistic. We definitely fit more on the artistic and creative side of the spectrum.
One of the most important factors in choosing an earring is the material. Earrings don’t just have close contact with the outer skin, they contact through pierced skin usually 24/7 so you need a metal that is hypoallergenic and won’t cause irritation. 316L Stainless steel is the most recommended metal for body piercings as it is hypoallergenic and waterproof making it safe for daily wear. Sterling silver is common but it does contain other alloys like copper which can oxidise on the metal and potentially discolour the skin. Cheap metals like zinc plated or nickel alloys should be avoided completely.
Earrings usually have a few key styles you will find when shopping for your next purchase. The main earring styles are:
Most commonly a plain rounded hoop or patterned design. Hoop earrings give a classic stylish look, they are subtle but can blend in perfectly with your style. Check out the Spiked Hoop Earring.
A stud earring sits on the flesh of the ear, usually on the lobe, they can either be plain metal, an object or character or a stone. Stud earrings are another great, subtle and stylish choice for an earring design. See the Skull Heart Stud Earring.
These earrings feature a piece of jewellery hanging down from either a hoop or a stud, usually an object or shape or chain links. Drop earrings are a much more modern and bold style, not everyone can wear them in their style but if they fit your look you will find yourself wearing them all the time. Our most popular drop earring is the Cathedral Link Spiked Chain Earrings.
