SILVER 1.6MM WIDE SLEEPERS
A classic pair of Sterling Silver hoop earrings -- modern, sleek, and infinitely wearable. These ear wire hoops measure between 11-80mm in diameter and have a simple closure. Great design for everyday wear, easy to put on and off, can easily be slept in - though I wouldn't recommend sleeping in the larger sizes. Bright Sterling Silver with tiny .925 stamp. Earrings measure 1.6mm in width. Long posts ensure they are not easily pulled out by longer hair. All Sterling Silver construction.
The earliest known Silver coins were minted in the kingdom of Lydia in Asia Minor around 600 BC. Since that time, Silver standards, in which the standard economic unit of account is a fixed weight of Silver, have been widespread throughout the world until the 20th century. The ratio between the amount of Silver used for coinage and that used for other purposes has fluctuated greatly over time; for example, in wartime, more Silver tends to have been used for coinage to finance the war. Today, Silver coins are produced from cast rods or ingots, rolled to the correct thickness, heat-treated, and then used to cut blanks from. These blanks are then milled and minted in a coining press; modern coining presses can produce 8000 silver coins per hour.
