DESCRIPTION

A few fun facts about seahorses:

  • At five feet per hour, they are the ocean’s slowest moving fish.
  • They are compared to teenagers, because of their voracious appetites.
  • They use their tails as hands.
  • They are monogamous. Seahorses mate for life. The males carry the eggs!

Despite their small size, they are symbols of strength, power, and perseverance.

It has been said that seahorses teach us that we have the resources within us to overcome adversities, no matter how small we feel.      

Playful and whimsical, these 14k gold plated over sterling studs represent these beloved upright equestrian creatures of the sea.

A NOTE ABOUT STERLING

We at Shorewood Jewelry believe in quality and because every piece is made of solid 925 sterling silver as it’s base metal (including 14k gold-plated over sterling), we can genuinely call it fine jewelry.

Real Sterling (whether plated or not) can be worn for years, without turning the skin a green tinge, such as with brass. As well, unlike brass, sterling silver is hypoallergenic.

Although swimming in the salty ocean or a chlorinated pool is not recommended because the salt can ultimately corrode the silver, you can shower in clean water every day with sterling silver.

That said, although considered a precious metal, one of the biggest things to be mindful of when it comes to sterling silver is that it is composed of a soft metal.

Yes, although it’s precious, sterling is soft!

It is definitely more bendable and pliable than for
instance, stainless steel, which is a hard metal.

So remember to be mindful of 2 things:

1. Be aware of the chain on your neck when quickly pulling a sweater over your head, or it could cause the chain to break!

2. Be aware to be gentle with the post on your stud or hoop earrings. Although the posts can be moved, as sometimes they bend slightly and need to be straightened, remember to do it smoothly and gently, with fingers held firmly on the whole post, as you move it into place.

Please see our Returns page to read about our chain breakage policy.
