'Day and night' earrings- Asymmetric studs

$35.00

'Day and night' earrings- Asymmetric studs are simple, geometric sterling silver studs inspired by the moon and the sun. These earrings are fun, edgy and make the perfect festival accessory. You can choose between silver, gold plated or rose gold plated. 

We do all gold-plating by hand in our little workshop and plate only the visible parts of the jewellery- we like to be resourceful. As with all gold-plated jewellery we recommend to take extra care, avoid cleaning products and anything that can scratch the surface.

They are made from recycled silver and measure 2.5 x 1.5 cm.

Q & A

 

What do you mean by recycled silver?

Most of our jewellery is made from ECOSILVER- a ‘brand‘ of recycled sterling silver by a British supplier Cooksongold. We also repair and remodel old jewellery.

Only about 30% of silver comes from silver mines and the rest is a by-product of copper refining so it is really not an ‘ethical’ or green metal. That is why we use recycled silver and when possible also Fairtrade certified.

 

Where is the recycled silver from?

The silver we use is generally from Cooksongold, a British jeweller’s supplier. They have their own brand of recycled sterling silver that they call ECOSILVER.

We also recycle old jewellery but, sadly, far too often the purity does not correlate with the hallmark and we cannot use it.
