Found: A Silver Snake Ring Dating Back to Roman Britain

Antique Snake Ring

 

SOMEONE WHO LIVED IN NORTHERN England around 2,000 years ago had good taste.

Recently, Northern Archaeological Associates has been excavating a stretch of road—part of Britain’s longest highway, the A1—in advance of improvements, and they’ve turned up a series of artifacts hinting at a settlement that would have been one of the earliest and wealthiest Roman towns in Britain, as LiveScience writes.

Among the finds were a silver ring shaped like a snake and a fragment of an amber figurine depicting a “toga-clad actor,” Historic England says. These are the possessions of a wealthy person, and along with the other discoveries—shoes, cups, keys, coins, shoes, a pen and ink pot—they indicate that this area was likely a more important center than was previously realized.

One of the items discovered was a plumb bob, which would have been used in road construction to keep a project on course. “It is fascinating to discover that nearly 2,000 years ago the Romans were using the A1 route as a major road of strategic importance,” a representative of Highways England said in a release.

FASHION SILVER - TYPES OF PLATING

Types of Plating

WHAT IS JEWELLERY PLATING
Plating is basically a cover applied on the surface of a metallic item. This Application of plating can respond to different kind of purposes. It can be used to inhibit corrosion, to increase solder ability, to improve wear ability, to reinforce paint adhesion, to reduce frictions, to improve conductivity and, in our case, to decorate and embellish jewelry.

 

WHAT DOES OXIDISED MEAN
Oxidation is a chemical process which gives a "tarnished" or "discolored" effect to your jewelry. Oxidized jewelry is getting more popular along with other products having antique finishes or vintage effects. For esthetical matters and after manufacturing certain items, we oxidize the jewelry in order to blacken the hollow parts and the holes to give them an ancient optical aspect. For Example an item that has a written engraving, once oxidized, will have the engraved part blackened which makes the words or letters contrast and readable. Oxidation is a finishing not a plating.

WHAT IS E-COATING
E-coating, also known as electro-coating or electro deposition, is a method that uses electrical current to coat a metal surface with an organic lacquer, covering every nook and cranny on the jewelry with an even and consistent protective coat. This coat protects the sterling silver used to create the jewelry and lets the natural beauty of the sterling silver come through without fear of damage. Basically it is an ultra fine transparent layer of plastic that protects the Silver and it's plating, therefore considerably increase the lifetime and the shininess of your Jewelry.
 
WHAT IS SILVER PLATING
Silver Plating is an extra 100% Silver layer that we apply on top of the solid silver base in order to give it long term shininess and an extra protection against scratches and daily usage. This layer, unless stated otherwise, is 2 Micron thick, but in certain case we might apply a thicker layer that goes up to 3 Microns. In general we also apply a layer of E-coat on top of the silver plating which protects the jewelry from tarnishing. You can identify this type of plating on the website as "Silver Plating + E-coat". Please find below more information about E-coating.
 
WHAT IS GOLD PLATING
Gold plating is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of the silver base by chemical or electrochemical plating. As for Gold Plating there are many different thicknesses available depending on the needs and the type of Jewelry. Rings for example are usually plated with at least 0.25 Microns or more as the item is exposed to many frictions and is hardwearing. For other items, they are gold flash plated. 
WHAT IS ROSE GOLD PLATING
Rose gold also referred to as Pink Gold, is a gold and copper alloy. A common alloy composition for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper, making up 18 karat rose gold. There is no "pure" rose gold, since it is an alloy of gold and copper. The more copper, the more intense and strong the "rose" colour will be.
WHAT IS BLACK RUTHENIUM PLATING
Ruthenium plating gives jewelry a "high-tech" jet-black or gun-metal grey look and can be plated onto a wide variety of metals. It is very hard and highly resistant to scratches. Black ruthenium plated jewelry gives a much darker black aspect than rhodium plated jewelry.
WHAT IS RHODIUM PLATING
Rose gold also referred to as Pink Gold, is a gold and copper alloy. A common alloy composition for rose gold is 75% gold and 25% copper, making up 18 karat rose gold. There is no "pure" rose gold, since it is an alloy of gold and copper. The more copper, the more intense and strong the "rose" color will be.

Jewellery Safety: Nickel Free Earrings

Jewellery Safety: Nickel Free Earrings

The requirements on nickel, lead and cadmium in jewellery, and why this is controlled

This guidance is for England, Scotland & Wales

Nickel, lead and cadmium in jewellery are covered by legislation. Products that come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin (for example, earrings, wristwatches, rivets and zips) must not release nickel more quickly than a specific rate.  

There are additional specific rules for post assemblies for use in piercings, and some lower tolerances for products with just a nickel coating. Cadmium and lead are toxic and are therefore also subject to restrictions.

If you are not the manufacturer or importer you should check with your supplier that the products comply with the Regulations.

The law

EU Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulates the use of nickel, lead and cadmium.

Anyone who supplies products intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin, and that may contain nickel or its compounds, lead or cadmium, will be affected by the Regulations. Examples are as follows:

  • earrings and other body piercing items
  • necklaces, bracelets, chains, anklets and finger rings
  • wristwatch cases, watch straps and tighteners

Nickel, lead & cadmium

Nickel is one of the most abundant metallic elements, likely to be found in most metals in trace quantities, including coins.

Lead is a heavy metal that has often been used in jewellery, to make the article heavier, brighten colours, and to stabilise or soften plastic. But lead is a toxic metal, which doesn't break down in the environment and accumulates in the human body.

Cadmium is also a heavy metal that has been used for over a century in both fashion and fine jewellery products. Small amounts of cadmium may be added to alloys used to make jewellery in order to impart specific technical and functional attributes to the metals. It may be present in jewellery as part of the metal alloy, solder or gold coating for electroforming / electroplating, or as a pigment or stabiliser in non-metal components.

However, cadmium has also been recognised as a toxin and carcinogen that is harmful when ingested or inhaled.

Nickel in products

PRODUCTS FOR USE IN PIERCINGS ('POST ASSEMBLIES')

Any post assembly for use in piercings must have a rate of nickel release less than 0.2 micrograms per square centimetre, per week. The post assembly is the part of the product designed for insertion into the wound caused by piercing, plus any faces that hold the piece in and against the wound (such as the ball or butterfly).

ALL PRODUCTS

As well as the specific rule for post assemblies for use in piercings, all products that come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin must have a rate of nickel release less than or equal to 0.5 micrograms per square centimetre, per week. In other words, it is prohibited to supply the product if the rate of release is greater than 0.5 micrograms per square centimetre, per week. 'Direct and prolonged contact' means touching the skin under normal use for continuous periods of time.

A product may contain nickel in higher concentrations; however, this only applies where a product has a coating and the coating is sufficient to ensure that the rate of nickel released from parts in direct and prolonged contact with the skin is less than 0.5 micrograms per square centimetre, per week, for a minimum period of two years' normal use.

When testing for nickel migration, laboratories may make an allowance for uncertainty in the results using the prescribed test methods, as outlined in European Standard BS EN 1811: Reference test method for release of nickel from all post assemblies which are inserted into pierced parts of the human body and articles intended to come into direct and prolonged contact with the skin.

Lead in products

Jewellery must not be supplied, or lead used in any individual part of jewellery articles, if the concentration of lead is equal to or greater than 0.05% by weight.

  • components, metal parts of jewellery and imitation jewellery articles
  • hair accessories

IS SILVER JEWELLERY SAFE FOR CHILDREN?

Is silver jewellery safe for children?

 Parents are caring and fear for their children. They want to keep them safe, above all else. This is a CRUCIAL thing we as jewelry traders MUST understand in order to sell to parents. 

Although parents have also fear of wasting money, this feeling is stronger for their children health and and safe. So, knowing which materials are hypoallergenic, and which materials are most likely to lead to an allergic reaction is THE MOST important information we can possess for selling children’s jewelry.  

While most people are fine wearing nickel jewelry, it is the metal causing most allergic reactions. Therefore, it would be unwise to sell children’s jewelry with large amounts of nickel in it. 

Many costume jewelry pieces are suspect here. But what about sterling silver jewelry? Is it hypoallergenic? An article titled, “Hypoallergenic Vs. Sterling Silver Earrings” from Leaf.tv explores this question: “Sterling silver is a jewelry alloy of 92.5 percent silver and 7.5 percent other metals.

The other metal in sterling silver is generally copper, but it can also be germanium, zinc or platinum. Traces of nickel can also be found in sterling silver jewelry and can cause an allergic reaction in people with intense jewelry allergies. However, most people who are allergic to nickel can wear sterling silver jewelry.” (emphasis added) Let’s look at that last line again. It doesn’t’ say most people can wear sterling silver jewelry without a reaction.  

It says most people who already have an allergy to nickel (which is a small subset of the overall population), can wear sterling silver jewelry without a reaction. In other words, we can confidently recommend sterling silver jewelry to our customers.

However, if a parent tells you their child has a nickel allergy or their child is about to get a new piercing, it would be wise to also offer them an EVEN SAFER material than sterling silver.

Nickel Allergies and New Piercings.

An article from Jewelry Wise titled, “Jewelry for Kids” has this to say about material choice for a new piercing: 

“Nickel allergies are a common cause of allergic contact dermatitis. 

The skin reaction is similar to one caused by infection, so if those newly pierced ears are looking bad, it could be an infection or it could be an allergy. 

Look for earring materials that tend to not irritate newly pierced ears.” 

Since sterling silver is 92.5 percent silver (aka definitely not nickel), if you want to be extra cautious, you want to recommend parents buy materials that are even more pure. 

These could include very high purity gold or silver, but these materials are also relatively soft (not durable) and expensive. 

The best bet for a highly worried parent would be surgery grade stainless steel. It’s very pure, it’s very durable and it’s not that expensive compared to gold or silver. 

However, it is important to note almost all children with nickel allergies will be completely fine wearing sterling silver jewelry. 

As a piece from Jewelry Info Place titled, “What is Hypoallergenic Jewelry?” says, 

“Although there are some people who are allergic to silver, most people who are allergic to nickel are not allergic to (sterling) silver because sterling silver is an almost pure metal usually made from 92.5% silver and 7.5% of other metals like zinc or copper…so it does not contain nickel, the most common source of allergies.” 

The bottom line on children’s jewelry and allergens? 

Almost everyone will be safe with sterling silver jewelry, but offering a small selection of surgical grade stainless steel can be a wise choice to lessen the fears of certain parents (and make the sale). 

Durability/hardiness 

To be honest, there’s not much that needs to be said here that isn’t common sense. 

Children’s brains are not quite as developed as adults, particularly in areas that deal with impulse control and making rational decisions. 

And kids love to have fun! 

So, buying a child a rather expensive, thin gold necklace and then sending them to the playground, is probably a bad idea … unless you like throwing money away! 

Pure gold and silver are relatively “soft” metals, meaning they are easily scratched. 

That’s why sterling silver, or gold plated sterling silver, is a better idea – it’s a bit harder, and much less expensive. 

Again, stainless steel is also a great choice due to it’s cost and durability. 

Example Pieces 

Ok, we’ve offered plenty of background on what you need to know to sell children’s jewelry to parents. 

Now, let’s move onto various example pieces from FashionSilver.co.uk

These pieces are all made of sterling silver. Sterling silver is probably the best material choice for children’s jewelrybecause of it’s low cost, good durability and near-hypoallergenic nature. 

Children’s Silver Fliyng Turtle Pendant with Epoxy  

This fun Flying Turtle pendant has bright colors and a cool design that’s sure to appeal to younger children. 

This sterling silver pendant is a great addition to your child’s jewelry selection. 

Kids Silver Butterfly Earrings 

Butterflies are very “in” with children, and these blue and pink butterfly earrings have enough colours on them to make a child feel “fabulous.” 

Additionally, due to the innocent design, parents shouldn’t have a problem allowing their children to wear these earrings. 

Children’s Fish Silver Ring 

Red fish 925 sterling silver rings. Handmade settings. 

Children Silver Earrings, Panda Ear Studs, White Black Earrings, Kid's Earrings 

Children’s Silver Penguin Ring Adjustable 

Cute and Colorful Penguin’s Silver ring

Children’s Silver Monkey Bracelet with Epoxy and Epoxy Color 

Finally, we have, perhaps, the most fun piece of all: a baseball (fanatic) snake! 

You can’t help but smile when you see this snake grin and children will love the attitude as well. 

This piece will appeal to parents, boys and girls alike.

Why pure silver is not used in charms and beaded jewellery

Pure silver is surely used in jewellery making, but definitely is not the ideal and favourable material to be used. The main reason pure silver, which is 99.9% pure, is not used in jewellery making is for its softness. 

Pure silver is a malleable material, which means it’s very soft, and not impact resistant. If pure silver made item is impacted with pressure, then it would lose its shape and detailing, and definitely the carvings and styles made on it. 

That’s why making small charms and silver beads using pure silver is a big risk, and though it would cost slightly more, yet it would not give a durable piece of jewellery which one may use for many years with the same shape, shine, and texture.  Another problem with pure silver is that, it loses its colour very soon. Silver loses its white colour and shine in a few days, once it’s exposed to open air and nature. Hence, why one may have to frequently make efforts to get the piece polished again and again to bring back the white shine and texture.
