If you've got sensitive skin, you might be questioning whether sterling silver plays nice. Well, good news – sterling silver can be a fantastic choice for those prone to skin reactions. Let our guide take you on a journey, unveiling the perks of rocking hypoallergenic sterling silver.

What does hypoallergenic mean?

Hypoallergenic means a product shouldn't trigger any allergic reactions. For those with sensitive skin, this is a major deal when scouting for everything from jewellery to clothing.
First things first, pure silver is like the MVP of hypoallergenic metals. It's generally kind to your skin, but is often mixed with other metals, like copper or nickel, to give it more strength. Silver comes in various types, and the way it's mixed determines how skin-friendly it is. Pure silver is allergy-free, but can be too delicate for jewellery. Enter sterling silver, aka 925 silver, stealing the spotlight in the jewellery scene. It's got 7.5% of other metal mixed in to amp up its toughness.
Say goodbye to irritations and hello to comfort! All of our jewellery at Elk & Bloom use sterling silver as the base metal which means every piece is hypoallergenic, ensuring you can rock them from sunrise to sunset without a worry.

     How to keep your silver clean to reduce allergies

    We all know that our favourite sterling silver jewellery deserve some TLC to keep them shining and irritation-free. Life's adventures can leave your jewellery with a bit of grime, and nobody wants that uncomfortable feeling against the skin. Fear not, because cleaning your silver chains and stacking rings is a breeze – here's the lowdown:

    1. Sterling silver cloth

    The hero of the day is a soft cloth. Take a moment to give your silver pieces a gentle polish to wipe away the day's adventures. It's like giving them a little spa treatment, and who doesn't love that? Every item of jewellery at Elk & Bloom comes with a polishing cloth to keep your pieces as good as new.

    2. Gemstones need extra love

    For those stunners adorned with gemstones, diamonds, or other precious gems, there's a golden rule – keep them dry. While you're polishing away, avoid the urge to submerge them in water. 

    3. Hypoallergenic jewellery

    Once the dirt is gone, your sterling silver jewellery remains the hypoallergenic champion it was meant to be. No more worries about irritation – just pure, sparkling bliss against your skin.

    From morning meetings to evening gatherings, the cool tones of hypoallergenic sterling silver seamlessly transition with your look. Whether you seek a dainty sterling silver necklace or statement silver hoops to make a bold statement, our collection boasts a range of sterling silver designs to suit your style needs!
