This is a rich, elegant earring. Classy. Organic. Contemporary.
They begin with elongated shiled-shaped sterling silver. The silver has been textured with a matte, gently pebbling background. Random ovals are stamped across each shield. The shields are dressed up with snippets of 23 K gold. The gold is attached to the silver using an ancient technique called “Keum boo”. In the final step, the earrings are treated with a patina that give a dark tarnish to the silver but not the gold. The result is a beautiful and dramatic contrast between the two metals. The earrings hang from handmade sterling silver ear wires.
Dimensions: the shields measure just under 1/2 inch across (7/16ths) at the widest spot. Total earring length is 1 and 3/4 inches, measured from where the earrings insert into your ear.
Your earrings arrive in a sturdy gift box with a story card that lists all of the materials.
