If you’re thinking of buying jewellery from ebay, there are a few things you should know before you do…

Unless you have been living on the moon for the past 10 years you will no doubt have at least heard of the corporate giant that is ebay! ebay is an online marketplace which is useful for purchasing a vast range of products. Their offering includes items from office stationary, technology & clothing through to kitchenware and furniture. In fact, if you can think of a product, chances are, you will be able to find it somewhere on ebay! However, even though ebay is a fantastic marketplace to go to when you are in need of certain items, buying jewellery from there does not come without risks and potential problems. Here we will briefly talk about some of the problems which customers both past and present have reported when buying their jewellery items from ebay!

Untrustworthy Sellers…

Even though there are a lot of sellers who can be trusted, it is important to remember that there are also a lot of dubious sellers who operate on the ebay platform. ebay isn’t known as a very strict marketplace when it comes to them allowing sellers to offer their merchandise on there – which in turn means there are a lot of sellers who do not necessarily have the customers best interests in mind. This can lead to a bad quality jewellery product, and quite often, even worse customer service!

Chinese Sellers

A lot of the jewellery sellers on ebay are based in China which means the jewellery they are selling is pretty much guaranteed to be made in China as well. It is well known within the jewellery trade that a lot of jewellery which is manufactured in China, is often of poor quality. Quite often, Chinese sellers will claim their jewellery is made from one material and it will then turn out that it’s actually made from another completely different material – if you are thinking of buying sterling silver jewellery from ebay, we would 100% advise you to seriously reconsider – there is an awful lot of jewellery which is sold through ebay which is purportedly sterling silver or either 9ct or 18 carat gold, and in fact quite often turns out to be only silver plated or gold plated – this can be incredibly damaging to the skin and even leave horrible green marks on the skin as well!

Expensive Returns

Quite often, the reason a lot of people are tempted to buy their jewellery from ebay in the first place, is because they are trying to grab a bargain. Ok, yes, jewellery on ebay can be cheaper to buy, but along with the points already mentioned above, buying jewellery on ebay can actually turn out to be more expensive in the long run!! This is because, as we have already discussed above, a lot of the sellers are based in China, and therefore they would expect you to return the item to China if you deem it to be unsuitable – postage costs to China can end up costing 2/3 times what the customer paid for the jewellery in the first place – that’s even if the item does actually end up reaching them in China! The Chinese postal service can be long, slow and unreliable, which means some customers are sometimes waiting months for their item to reach its destination if it gets there at all!

Faulty Jewellery

If you’ve bought some jewellery from ebay, and it turns out to be faulty, you wouldn’t be the first customer to experience this issue. If you buy jewellery from ebay which turns out to be faulty, then this will more than likely be a combination of the above points; dubious sellers who put profits before jewellery quality. Because a lot of the sellers on ebay put profit before the quality of the merchandise and customer service, there is a much increased likelihood that the jewellery you are buying is going to be quite poor quality. If you are buying for yourself, a faulty jewellery item obviously causes problems, but even worse, if you are buying the jewellery as a gift for someone else it can also be quite embarrassing!

Tax Avoiders!

There are a lot of large corporations who have, in the past, been accused of taking measures to avoid paying their fair share of corporation tax. So by purchasing your jewellery from ebay, or any item for that matter, even though it’s not nice to admit it, you are essentially condoning this behaviour! Some people may be thinking, well so what if they avoid paying tax, we don’t blame them – however, the problem with large corporations such as ebay avoiding paying their fair share of tax, means that everyone who lives in the UK ultimately suffers as a consequence – less tax collected from these behemoths means less government funding for schools, charities, NHS and other infrastructure such as roads and parks etc – so in a nutshell, everyone in the UK suffers!

Supporting Small UK Businesses Benefits Everyone!

If the above discussion points aren’t enough to make you think twice about buying your jewellery from ebay, then remember that buying through ebay means a small UK business loses out – this in turns means everyone in the UK then loses out as well. The below image illustrates how when customers consciously make their purchase from a small UK business, their money ultimately gets reinvested within the UK and they are supporting local communities, families and jobs!

Ultimately, whether you buy your jewellery from ebay or not, is your choice and your choice alone! But it’s always worth considering the pro’s and cons of buying jewellery from ebay when there is an abundance of jewellery choice from smaller independent jewellery retailers – one of which is ourselves, Alfred & Co.

Okay, good dressing can really prep up the entire look of any man, we’ll give you that but sometimes it’s a guy with a brilliant sense of accessorising that stands apart from the rest in an impressive way, of course! Looking attractive doesn’t imply just having solid looks to do the dew instead it’s all about your careful taste in clothing, the choices you make in stylizing and most importantly how you carry yourself despite what others might make of you.



Unlike women, men do not make jewellery choices depending on which item twinkles the brightest. Men have to keep it discreet, fashionable and on point. Too much would look clownish and too less will appear half-done. Better hover over a safer but a sharper option.

Dismissing The Classics



There are always the basics to start with and trusting their instincts, men fall for fail-safe options such as wristwatches, tie clips and cuff links to be precise. However, explore your options, you may come upon something that gives that wow factor and forces a second glance (you get the meaning, yeah?) Well, that something is hidden in our mens necklaces.


We’ve got chains and necklaces in exotic masculine symbols that let you embrace your personality, sentimentality, and originality. We’ll introduce some of the most unique pieces from our diverse range, so you can pull off the coolest bloke vibes ever.


The Simpler The Better



Men cannot be loud with their jewellery choices, their picks should be natural, stylish and like a part of their body, for it to look they’ve had it on for years. Plain chains of stainless steel like our Mens Necklace in Sleek Style are one famous item of male adornment. They can be worn in a variety of styles depending on the length, metal, and craftsmanship. Whether you pull off a chain over a simple t-shirt or layer it with a pendant necklace, you’d look cool no matter what. Just remember to keep things modest!


Devotion To Religion



Religious necklaces are great emblems of showing your faithfulness to your particular religion. These symbols not only look dapper but are a reminder of what you stand for and others too. They’re merely used as a personal show of belief and the most popular ones are the crosses, scapulars, and stars of David. You can try our Men’s Cross Necklace which is available in both gold and silver. It is a beautiful cross necklace that would help you set your own jewellery statement without trying too hard. Wear it and nail it!


The Additions – Pendants



Pendants merely refer to small icons looped on a long chain, so it can rest below your neck right where your breastbone is. As long it’s small, stylish and hits the sternum right, you’re good to go. The symbol can be anything from a circle, half-moon to a shark tail like our Shark Tail Necklace. Worn over a white t-shirt, straight leg jeans and trainers – you’ll be the casually hot walking vision.


Going Ancient



Our Byzantine style jewellery has become such a style statement – The Byzantine style has always been above the rest and gives off a rich opulence, unlike anything we’ve ever seen. We admit it’s heavy, ostentatious and extravagant but would look particularly divine during a dressing up event. However, our Byzantine Style Mens Necklace is certainly not over-elaborate and would look suitable on any attire. Either Keep it low-key half-hidden under the collar of your shirt or wear it proudly over a loose shirt, both ways the effect will be admirable, and double brownie-points for the black version we have in our mens necklaces collection.


The Snake’s Charm



There’s been prejudice around men wearing jewellery, people are okay with wristwatches and a wedding ring, jewellery for men is almost considered a direct attack on their masculinity. Now, times have changed, new codes have been set and nothing is harming the rules of complete manliness anymore – men are men and they want to express their individuality however they like. To enjoy these fruits of freedom, our Mens Chain Necklace Snake Style will be the ideal piece to do so. Delightfully riveting and sly-fully classy, pair this with dark denim, ruffle up your hair and you’d be causing quite a stir.

Ladies silver bangles are one of those power pieces which let you assimilate whether to go as a minimalist, maximalist or simply follow where your heart leads you. Bangles for women are available in many shapes and sizes with designs that will leave your eyes in awe – there’s something for everyone and every occasion. From stacking up the lower-half of your arm for a bohemian approach, pairing a silver charm bangle or solving the issue with a single silver bangle to subdue your rather busy outfit, silver bangles help a lot in a fashion trauma and even more!


Reasons to Own At least One?



Well, for obvious reasons we must state that apart from bangles being tremendously versatile, they last for a long time especially if they are made from sterling silver like in our case and not just plated with silver. Sterling silver is timeless and looks elegant, and most importantly stands the test of time.



Sterling silver jewellery is durable, implying that it can be treasured and passed onto next generations as an heirloom since you can rely on that it won’t rust or get spoiled beyond repair. Moreover, you can easily rub it clean with a dirt-free cloth and a simple varnish.



Women’s silver bangles are hypoallergenic meaning that sterling silver is manufactured from 92.5% of pure silver and the other 7.5% usually comprises other metals mostly copper. Sterling silver doesn’t cause any allergic reaction, unlike nickel. Make sure you buy silver jewellery that has 925 sterling silver mentioned to confirm that indeed it’s a true silver item.



Sterling silver is the most popular metal used for jewellery. It not only is an inexpensive investment but gives jewellery-makers and buyers alike a very creative experience. A metal that always stays trendy and keeps you trendy has extreme popularity which causes it to be easily available, one more excuse to purchase it.



You have limitless choices at hand with sterling silver and similarly, if you wish to expand your jewellery collection with high-end and high-quality pieces, it is a must. From a vast range, you surely are going to find a piece that will sweep you off your feet. Sterling silver jewellery earns the reputation of being all-inclusive as you only need one piece to layer, mix and style it with other metals without worrying that it’ll clash against your attire, rather you’ll get to pull an effortless look with it being a standout.


Opt For Modern & Sleek



We believe ladies bangles speak about their individuality, something that says “mix and tell,” It should be as dominant as your shoes or your bag for that matter. Our Silver Torque Bangle Twist is a cuff bracelet and is entirely made of solid 925 sterling silver. Torque styles have been around for ages and can be worn snugly without having to meddle with any clasps or hinges. These exuded important symbolism in ancient times as they emphasized power, nobility, strength, and status. Likewise, this will have a lot to say about you particularly when you pair it with blacks, whites, or dark blues for an absolute exquisite finish.


Go Big & Bold



Sometimes, piling up too many bangles together prevents the uniqueness of each piece showing through and they merely look feckless. To keep things spicy and noticeable, our Butterfly Bangle in Sterling Silver is worth a try. The average image of charms is chains linked with dangling symbols like hearts, stars or different shapes, etc. But this one is different and attracts attention in a pronounced manner. We’d suggest going simple with this bangle as too much would impair its impact. Be careful, be cute, and be cool!


Add Some Daintiness



There’s nothing quite like some minimalist bangles for women to believe that often “less is more.” Bracelets are a brilliant way to snapshot your life, what you feel, what you love and what you seek. Knot bracelets fit the idiom “wearing your heart on your sleeve” perfectly and we love it! Claimed as the true lover’s knot, our Silver Knot Bangle is a sign of true love, affection, and friendship. Not does it only serve as an ideal gift for your special someone but can be paired with your watch for that rare semblance.


Trust Your Natural Instincts



Being close to nature proves to be a road to self-discovery and wearing it as part of your routine jewellery gives out that extra wow factor. Our Feather Bangle in Sterling Silver brings the perfect opportunity to experiment. You can break the rule of not mixing your metals and go for copper, gold or rose gold with this bangle. Mixing metals is hot in the fashion books right now, so you might want to get a taste of it too.

In most of these countries it is very common for the bride to be wearing a silver bangle at her wedding. Silver bangles also play an important role in both Hinduism and Sikhism as well as other religions.

Silver bangles are an extremely popular fashion accessory worn by both sexes. The reason silver bangles have always been so popular is down to their ability to add style, class and sophistication to any attire. Whether you’re going out on a night out with friends, heading for a meal with a loved one, or simply looking to spice up your day to day dress, then a silver bangle is always guaranteed to add extra style to your look.

Many famous people have also been spotted wearing sterling silver bangles; from movies stars such as Leonardo Di Caprio & Tom Hardy to sports stars such as Lewis Hamilton and fashion icon David Beckham.

Style’s of Sterling Silver Necklace

Sterling silver necklace’s and sterling silver chains can come in many different shapes and sizes. Lengths of silver chains are usually measured in inches, and depending on how you would like the silver necklace to hang, we would recommend the following as a necklace guideline: –

The below image illustrates the appearance of different length necklaces worn by both ladies (left) and gentlemen (right).

Necklace Size Guide

Necklace Size Guide by Alfred & Co. Jewellery

  • Ladies Silver Necklace Length

The standard necklace sizes for women are as follows: –

16″ Necklace – Choker length; this has the necklace sitting very closely around the neck.
18″ Necklace – Collarbone length; still quite a short length which helps keep the necklace visible to others.
20″ Necklace – A few inches below collarbone; here the length is a little longer which allows the necklace to sit a little lower.

22″ Necklace – a 22 inch necklace will hang even lower, but still above the breastbone. Choose this length if you’re going for a relaxed/discreet look.

  • Mens Silver Necklace Length

The standard necklace length sizes for men are as follows: –

18″ Necklace – this size men’s necklace usually results in the chain sitting just beneath the collar, showing quite prominently on display.

20″ Necklace – a popular length for men, this allows the necklace to sit beneath the collar and still be visible depending on the type of top being worn.

22Necklace – this length allows the necklace to sit a little lower down beneath the collar and is suitable for those going for a more relaxed look or for people who are slightly taller.

24″ Necklace – this is one of the longer length of necklace’s which allows it to sit fairly relaxed and loose – usually finishing close to the heart – perfect if you’re attaching a pendant onto it.

30″ Necklace – this is the longest necklace which we stock. If you’re looking for a very casual, laid back and relaxed look, a 30 inch silver necklace would be the perfect choice.

As you can see, there are a variety of different length necklace’s to choose from, but ultimately it comes down to personal preference. Using the necklace length guide above should hopefully help make your choice that little bit easier.

Sterling silver necklaces and chains come in a range of different styles to suit different tastes. Here we are going to talk about some of the key sterling silver necklace styles and hopefully help make selecting your next silver necklace a little bit easier. Key silver necklace styles include:-

Silver Curb Necklace

A curb style silver necklace is probably the most popular style sterling silver necklace due its design simplicity. A curb style sterling silver necklace has a classic design with flat interlocking curb links. A curb style sterling silver necklace is a very popular choice for both men & women alike due to the understated & casual look it delivers. The thinner curb chains work very well with silver pendants. An example of a curb style silver chain can be seen below: –

Silver Chain 6.7mm

Curb Style Silver Necklace

Figaro Silver Necklace

Again a Figaro style silver necklace has flattened links similar to the curb style, however where this style differs is in how the connection and size of the links vary – the Figaro style silver chain usually has two or three shorter connecting curb links alternating with longer connecting links. If you’re looking for a silver necklace which offers something a little different, the Figaro style sterling silver necklace is an excellent choice.

Sterling Silver Necklace Figaro 13mm

Figaro Style Silver Necklace

Mariner or Anchor Silver Necklace

The Mariner silver chain style is very similar to the Figaro silver necklace style, with the main difference being that the mariner chain alternates a single, small, round link with a larger oval link. These links closely resemble the typical chains attached to anchors for boats hence the alternate style name of “anchor necklace”.

Dog necklace’s have always been a must have fashion accessory fuelled on by the “Top Gun” movie in which Tom Cruise’s “Maverick” famously donned a silver dog tag chain. There is something exceedingly special about a dog tag necklace which ensures they consistently remain at the forefront of fashionable neckwear.
