As a rule we wouldn't recommend buying earrings as a gift. For hygiene reasons they're not returnable, and women tend to be very picky about the earring they wear, making them a very high risk gift. However. If you want to go for it, always make sure they are genuine silver and guaranteed Nickel free, as many people are sensitive to Nickel and earrings, being under the minimum weight for Hallmarking (which guarantees that things that looks like silver actually are sterling silver and free from banned base metals like Nickel) can be a problem if you are not 100% sure of the provenance. We guarantee all Corazon Latino earrings are sterling silver and nickel free.
