Here at FreshTrends, we believe that quality piercings deserve quality jewelry. That’s why we pride ourselves on our handcrafted, custom jewelry made only from the finest materials.

Last week, we rolled out a batch of new 14k gold jewelry, which we love, but now we’re excited to reveal our new products made from gold’s grey cousin: sterling silver.

What is 925 Sterling Silver?

Pure silver is susceptible to dings and scratches and requires more maintenance than other precious metals to avoid tarnishing, jewelers mix a metal allow with their silver to ensure durability. 925 sterling silver simply means that the jewelry is comprised of 92.5% silver. Sterling silver, therefore, is more durable and requires less maintenance than silver (although you will still want to polish jewelry every once in awhile to avoid tarnish).

Sterling silver offers the quality of a precious metal in a color that compliments cooler skin tones and at a price usually less expensive than gold. Here are some of our brand new sterling silver styles.

Leaves are nature’s indicators of the changing seasons.
