Sterling silver jewellery

Sterling silver is the most affordable yet one of the most fashionable white metals and is perfect for making bigger statement pieces of jewellery. It has been worn throughout history in the form of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. It perfectly complements diamonds and other precious gemstones.

Whether you're after a chunky bangle or a delicate pendant, we bring you a wide range of sterling silver jewellery at Ernest Jones.

Silver has been mined and used for jewellery since the bronze age at sites across Europe and West Asia. Silver has also been mined in Greece, Spain, Southern and Northern America. Like gold, silver is ductile and malleable, which means that it can be made into smaller delicate pieces used for bigger and bolder jewellery designs.

Hallmarks

As with all precious metals, sterling silver jewellery will carry a hallmark declaring its quality and authenticity.

Caring for silver

One of the easiest ways to keep silver jewellery clean is to wear it regularly, this will stop it from tarnishing and prevents the surface oxidising in the air. It is recommended to avoid contact with perfume, hairspray and household cleaning products to maintain your sterling silver jewellery's shine.

At Ernest Jones we also stock a great range of cleaning products including sprays and wipes. If your sterling silver jewellery needs repairing, you can also bring it to an Ernest Jones for a repair service.
