The warm breezy days of summer come to mind with these tropical-themed earrings. Heart-shaped carved leaf beads made of natural shell dangle from hypoallergenic gold-plated or silver-plated surgical steel fishhook earwires. The second style option replaces one leaf bead with a creamy freshwater pearl.
You may choose upgrade your earrings with higher quality sterling silver or 14K gold-filled findings for an additional cost (see options to choose).
- Pearl & shell style measures approximately 1.9 inches long, including earwires.
- Double leaf style measures approximately 2.1 inches long, including earwires
- Gold-filled earwires are just slightly smaller
Pearls and shells are natural materials and may very slightly in size and shape from the ones pictured. I will always do my best to select matching ones.
Care note: Do NOT immerse pearls, gemstones, and other natural materials in any type of liquid jewelry cleaner. Should tarnish appear on the metal findings over time, clean them gently with a soft jewelry polishing cloth. You may wish to store them in an airtight bag by themselves or with a small piece of tarnish prevention paper
Materials & background:
Pearls have been prized since ancient times for their beauty and timeless elegance. The carved leaf beads are made from the shiny reflective interior of mussels and other shells.
