White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium). White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible.  It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.

While hoop earrings of all sizes and styles seem to be having a moment, there are many jewellery lovers and historians who would argue the style has always been in vogue. Dating as far back as the bronze age – particularly the Minoan civilization (c. 2700 to c. 1100 BC) – hoop earrings were created in gold, silver, and, you guessed it, bronze. Hoop earrings can also be traced back to 4th century Africa – particularly to Nubia – which is now the country of Sudan. Not only has the hoop earring held its own in ancient history but it also found a place in both pop culture and street culture, where it largely remains today. In the 1960s, hoops were a common accessory for women of colour, but hoops were also worn by entertainers of that era, too; singers like Cher and Diana Ross were often seen donning hoops under glorious heads of rich, dark hair. However, in the 80s and 90s, as rap and R&B gained a greater role in the modern music scene, hoop earrings were associated with urban styles and were often decorated with gemstones, names, or phrases. A hoop is a circle, and while hoop earrings have to open at some point in order for them to be placed on an ear, the idea of the circle is that it is infinite, like time. The circle is the ultimate symbol of life having no beginning and no end. It will be interesting to see which icons of tomorrow will be shown pictured wearing hoop earrings when society looks back on the styles of this century. It is a style that spans culture and ages, and likely will continue to for centuries to come.
