Airplane Earrings


The art of folding paper airplanes dates back to ancient China. In fact, the Wright brothers used paper models in their pioneering airplane designs. These silver earrings are a whimsical take on the classic plane, featuring wire representations of the folds and flexing surfaces that make them so fun to fly.

Sterling Silver Earrings

Sterling silver is one of the most popular materials for earrings. It is hypoallergenic, meaning it does not irritate the skin, and is very durable. Its natural sheen also makes it look very pretty and attractive. It tarnishes slower than other metals and therefore requires less upkeep.

Generally, you should store your sterling silver earrings somewhere cool and dry, and away from direct sunlight. It is also a good idea to remove them before taking a shower or bath, as chlorine in the water can accelerate the tarnishing process. You should also take them off when you are using any chemicals that may be harmful to your jewellery, such as household cleaners.

If your sterling silver earrings are starting to look tarnished, there is something you can use right in the kitchen cupboard to clean them up. A simple mixture of cornstarch and water can be a great tarnish removal solution. Just form a thick paste and gently rub it onto the surface of your earrings, buffing away any discoloration. You could also try baking soda, which can work even better if your earrings are particularly tarnished. Just mix a quarter of a cup of baking soda with a little water to make a paste that is thick enough to get into the cracks and crevices of intricate designs.

Titanium Earrings

Titanium earrings are hypoallergenic and an excellent choice for anyone with sensitive ears or metal allergies. When metals like nickel come into contact with the skin, they can cause redness, swelling and rashes. Titanium, however, is a natural metal that will not cause these symptoms. Earrings made from titanium are also very light, so they won’t weigh down your earlobes and are more comfortable to wear than heavier styles.

Claire’s offers a variety of titanium earrings, including titanium stud earrings, titanium hoops and even implant-grade titanium earrings for piercings that require a more pure form of the metal. Titanium is a strong and durable metal, so you can be sure that your earrings will last. They will also not bend or break easily, making them a great choice for kids who love to move around and play.

To make sure that the titanium earrings you purchase are safe for your skin, look for a stamp on the jewelry that says “titanium.” This will ensure that the earrings are made from Grade 23 titanium that contains no nickel or cobalt. You can also check to see if the titanium is anodized, which means that it has gone through a process to create color variations in the metal. Anodized titanium does not contain nickel and is safe for sensitive ears.

Gold Earrings

Whether you want to subtly convey that you’re professional and polished or capture attention with a set of dazzling hoops, gold earrings are a stylish choice. Look for studs that hug the earlobe or gold hoop earrings with intricate designs and sparkling gemstones. Gold earring jackets let you add sparkle to a solitaire stud or stone earring by sitting behind it, and gold ear cuffs are a modern option that hugs the entire ear.

Solid gold is ideal for jewelry since it lasts forever, won’t rust or tarnish and is hypoallergenic. However, it’s expensive for many and not practical for everyday wear. A popular alternative is gold filled, which has a layer of real gold mechanically bonded to a base metal, usually jeweler’s brass. US standards require the gold to be 2.5 microns thick or higher.

For those with metal allergies, try gold vermeil instead. This has even more gold than plated jewelry and is safe for those with sensitive skin. Airplane earrings
