70,000 people headed to Burning Man music festival in Nevada this year, including a list of celebs, all decked out in festival-appropriate gear and jewelry! Burning Man festivalgoers are known for their eccentric outfits (which we always love to see!), so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite celebrity fashion and jewelry looks. Paris Hilton rocked some gold jewels, while Cara Delevingne accessorized with hoops, Danish model Nina Agdal sizzled in silver, and hair stylist Laura Polko flaunted a statement necklace.

Silver Education: What Does a 925 Stamp Mean?

If you’re jewelry addicts like us, you probably carefully study every piece of jewelry before buying it. You may have noticed a 925 stamp on certain silver baubles. What does a 925 stamp mean? That’s what we’re here to tell you!

A 925 stamp (aka a .925 or S925 stamp) signifies that 92.5% of your jewelry is sterling silver, and the remaining 7.5% is made of alloy metals. If you see 925 stamped on a piece of jewelry, this means the jewelry meets the quality standards of silver. Anything without a 925 stamp isn’t considered true silver. Now there is one loop-hole (isn’t there always?) – not all countries are strict with their markings or require a stamp. Luckily there are easy ways to test for sterling silver authenticity at home.

1) See if your silver jewelry sticks to a neodymium magnet. If your jewelry does stick, then it’s a good indicator it isn’t sterling silver.

2) Rub a soft white cloth on your silver jewelryA 925 piece of jewelry should oxidize when exposed to the air, so if you see black marks on your cloth, then your piece is more than likely sterling silver.

How To Accessorize Your Red Dress

1) Go For Monochrome

Ruby reds and pretty pinks will bring just the right amount of color contrast to your red dress. If the top of your dress shows a little skin, don’t be afraid to highlight your neckline with a ruby pendant.

2) Classic Black 

Black is a classic color that will never go out of style, and stands out against red. For a more dramatic look, pair your red dress with an onyx drop pendant.

3) Cool White

It’s still summer and that means white is hot, hot, hot! Throw on a white statement bracelet to lighten up your red dress look and tune in to those summer vibes.

4) Glitzy Gold or Sleek Silver 

Whether you’re a golden diva or a silver gal, both work well with a red dress. Add some glamour to your red dress outfit with a pair of yellow gold chandelier earrings, or try an Art Nouveau ring in sterling silver.
