Why wear Copper and Silver Jewellery?

As well as looking fabulous – copper and silver jewellery really is good for your health 

Jewellery makes us feel good and allows us to express our individuality, and who doesn’t like to have a collection of jewellery and accessories to fit any occasion? But what could be even better than beautiful jewellery that makes us feel good too! 

For many people, jewellery made of certain metals, or containing certain gems and crystals, has more significance because they believe that it has medicinal properties too. There is no question that a lot of people do believe in the power of metals and crystals to heal, and those beliefs have been around for centuries.   

Copper  

Copper is the oldest metal ore and is a pure, natural metal with many properties. It is in fact essential for our health and wellbeing. Copper jewellery has been worn since ancient times and is known for providing many healing benefits to the wearer, both internally and externally. Today, the healing properties and simple beauty of copper still make it a fashionable and highly sought after jewellery.  

When copper is worn, the minerals are slowly absorbed by the skin with physical healing benefits. It is a natural antibacterial and can kill harmful microbes very quickly. It is also an essential mineral required for metabolic function and is known to help reduce inflammation, arthritis, headaches, and improve digestions. As an excellent conductor it can improve your energy levels too. On a holistic and spiritual level, it is known to assist in balancing the chakras and meridians and has historically been associated as the body metal, and is considered a grounding metal for the human body and spirit. (Silver is the metal of the spirit, and gold is the metal of the mind.)  

Silver  

Silver is another metal that is said to be absorbed by the skin and provide medicinal benefits. It helps keep the blood vessels elastic, which may help reduce blood pressure and silver helps with bone formation. It is also said that silver has pain killing properties.  

So what could be better for you than jewellery designed from silver and copper?  

The beauty of Copper and Silver Jewellery 

The warm reddish glow of copper, contrasting with silver, makes it a gorgeous choice for jewellery, and it offers an affordable alternative to gold. Whether the copper takes centre stage or adds a beautiful accent to a piece – it enhances the interest and style of a piece. 

Copper and silver jewellery looks luxurious, but it’s a lot more practical from a cost perspective, so you can afford more unique pieces in your jewellery collection. Take a look through our Copper and Silver Collection which has a  range of styles and designs, from necklaces and earrings, to bracelets and bangles. 

Whether you’re looking to treat yourself, or buy a gift for someone else, copper and silver jewellery can be a casual or elegant choice that looks great with every skin tone, hair colour and clothing style. 

You’ll feel like the queen of Egypt wearing our beautiful Wave Cuff Bangle. Made by a single artisan, and designed with overlapping bands of sterling silver and copper with contrasting polished and hammered finishes. This gorgeous design won’t go out of style any time soon.   

It you like your jewellery to match we have a number of pendants or necklaces and earrings that go together perfectly. Take a look at our wonderful Dreamcatcher Set   

Hammered copper is shiny and interesting. The unique, hammer blows create a one of a kind look that’s individual to each piece. These simple, yet elegant copper and silver Swing Earrings are a perfect example of timeless design that looks great with everything.   

Copper jewellery can be spiritually powerful, and our wonderful Sun Goddess Pendant features the bold mixed metal look that’s so popular right now. Beautifully handcrafted and designed with alternating sun rays of polished copper and sterling silver.   

If you love the hammered jewellery trend, but prefer your jewellery to have a softer, more feminine look, these copper and silver earrings have a unique textured look that is very fashionable, but the traditional tear drop shape is timeless enough to ensure you’ll be wearing these earrings for years to come. Since you’re splurging on yourself, why not add a matching teardrop pendant to your jewellery collection too?
