 What is Hip Hop Jewellery?

Iced out jewelry originates from the Bronx in New York, United States of America. They often hosted block parties. These parties would feature DJs who played beats from disco, funk, R&B, and soul music. These short beats and mashups were already popular in Jamaica, so there’s a line of thinking that has Jamaicans bringing the early hip hop style with them to 1970’s New York. Iced out chains are an amazing start to your jewelry set and unless you have a huge pendant will most likely be the most expensive piece of your hiphop iced out jewelry collection. At the moment my favorite piece has got to be the baguette diamond iced out chain there is also a matching iced out bracelet.

Common Issues & Preventions

1. Fading & Discolouring! Why?
Substances like sweat, oil, nail polish, nail polish remover, chlorine, and perfume may react with metal/plated jewelry and cause it to tarnish. Make sure you remove your gold plated jewelry when you exercise or doing anything requiring heavy work and when swimming.
 The fastest way for your jewellery to discolour is for it to come into contact repeatedly with moisture. Dust is also very common problem for jewellery but is also easy to keep on top off with polishing equipment simple to find these days.
Is it possible to have my jewellery refurbed?
With silver and gold jewellery it is usually a lot more simple as it can be polished back to its original state whereas Gold plated jewellery is not as simple they would need to put the jewellery through a repeat process of electro plating but with the right care for your jewellery. this could be months, even years dependant on the quality of your piece. 

To give your ring a deep clean, use mild soap (dish soap works well as it helps break up any greasy deposits that can make diamond's appear cloudy or dull) mixed with warm water and a soft toothbrush. Soak the ring for 10-20 minutes, as needed, and then scrub gently with the toothbrush under warm running water.



Can this jewelry be worn daily? 

Different jewelers may recommend slightly different things but here at Drip Store Worldwide we say: if you look after your 925 Sterling silver jewelry You can wear on a daily basis we recommend cleaning fortnightly using this method.

With Brass plated jewelry we have a different view: from knowledge brass jewelry tends to tarnish when in contact with sweat consistently and therefore discolors and may even turn your finger or neck green. WE DO NOT WANT THIS FOR OUR CUSTOMERS AND ALWAYS RECOMMEND 925 STERLING SILVER ICED OUT JEWELRY.

Stainless steel vs Sterling silver

Stainless steel is an alloy of steel and chromium. It combines the strength, durability, and functionality of steel with the luster, low-maintenance upkeep, and resistance to corrosion of chromium. Applications of stainless steel include cookware, surgical equipment, architecture, and jewelry, among many others.

Sterling silver is an alloy consisting of 92.5% silver and 7.5% of another metal, usually copper. Pure silver is usually too soft to make anything functional or durable, and therefore alloying the silver with another metal allows it to have the strength of another metal, with the flexibility and lustrous appearance of silver. Sterling silver is used to make jewelry, cutlery, and musical instruments (some manufacturers of brass wind instruments such as saxophones choose to make the instruments out of sterling silver rather than brass). Pictured above is a sterling silver Chinese punch bowl from 1875.

Stainless Steel Sterling Silver
Made from steel and chromium. Made from silver and another metal, usually copper.
More scratch resistant than silver. Less scratch resistant than steel.
Does not tarnish. Tarnishes.
Less lustrous. More lustrous.



Stainless Steel vs Sterling Silver

What is the difference between stainless steel and sterling silver? The main differences are in the composition and quality of both metals, namely:

  • What each metal is made out of
  • Durability
  • Scratch-resistance
  • Tarnishing
  • Luster
  • Weight

Both stainless steel and sterling silver are alloy metals, meaning they are metals made from of a combination of two other metals. Stainless steel is made from steel and chromium, and sterling silver is made from silver and another metal, which is usually copper, though it can also be zinc or platinum.

Pure silver is not a very durable metal, which is why it is alloyed with a more durable substance such as copper. While this alloying does make sterling silver relatively durable, stainless steel is still the more durable option of the two, and this can be seen, for example, in the fact that stainless steel has a variety of industrial and heavy-duty uses that sterling silver does not.

Stainless steel does not tarnish. Silver, however, will tarnish if not properly cared for.

Sterling silver is brighter and more lustrous than stainless steel. Where sterling silver is shiny and bright, stainless steel has a flatter and duller color to it.

Sterling silver is very light. Silver itself is a light and soft metal, and the weight of the alloy mainly comes from the second metal. Stainless steel on the other hand, is much heavier.

The main advantage of sterling silver, then, is its aesthetic appearance. Sterling silver looks shinier and brighter. Stainless steel is more durable, can last longer, and does not tarnish, but this comes at the cost of a duller and less shiny appearance. This is one way sterling silver can be distinguished from stainless steel. Another way is to look for a marking on the item that says “.925,” signifying the minimum fineness required for an object to be considered sterling silver.
