Balsamroot // Earrings
Handmade by one of the oldest silversmiths in Sweden, these lifelike yet stylized balsamroot earrings will have you dreaming of sunny springtime hills, dotted with yellow Arrowleaf Balsamroot flowers, that climb higher into the mountains as the summer passes.
This is the most practical of our earrings because of their compact shape. It is therefore our best offering if you are super active and plan on wearing your earrings for many days on end and sleeping in them (I sleep in all of our earrings personally) as it is a more simple shape!
SIZING: 1.4cm and 1.5mm thick, peg design. Peg is 1cm long, silver stopper on back.
Silver Jewelry Care:
Our jewelry is made from 1925 sterling silver that is nickel-free. It is so beautiful that you will want to wear it all the time, so here’s what you need to know to make it last as long as possible.
Sterling silver oxidizes (grows darker) over time due to the exposure of different environments, which is completely normal and to be expected!
If your jewelry becomes dark over time and you wish to revive the bright, shiny, look, simply polish it up with silver polish, which typically takes minutes. You can use a silver polish cloth (remember to be gentle, especially with delicate earring pegs!) or soak it in liquid silver polish, and rinse off well afterwards before wearing.
If you would like your silver jewelry to oxidize at a slower pace, ie, stay shiny and bright silver for longer, then we recommend you take care of it by following these simple steps!
- Keep your box so you can store your jewelry in there when not in use.
- Clean your jewelry often to get rid of grease, sweat, makeup, sunscreen, etc.
- Don’t wear the jewelry surfing, swimming (in salt water or chlorine!)
- Don't sleep in your jewelry (though you can, I have done it!)
TIP: Please be gentle with your earring pegs! Always handle carefully, store in the box it came with or another jewelry-specific box, especially while traveling. Do not just stick your earrings in a pocket or bag! If for whatever reason your earring peg becomes bent, you can bend it back but go as slowly and gently as possible!!!!
