Small drop earrings with a “crescent moon and stars” arrangement formed from natural abalone shell (Mother of Pearl) pieces set in Alpaca silver with a blue backdrop.
• Abalone shell pieces shimmer beautifully when worn, creating a glamourous effect.
• The reverse of the earrings is a plain Alpaca silver, which is an alloy made from a mixture of zinc, copper and nickel.
Alpaca behaves like silver and can be polished in a similar way.
• The hooks are made from silver-plated metal which is nickel-free and therefore hypoallergenic.
These shell earrings have been created in small workshops in Taxco, in the state of Guerrero, Mexico – an important centre of jewellery making since colonial times.
DIMENSIONS – the drop from the base of the hook is 2.3 cm x width 1 cm approximately.
Did you know?
Abalone is a common name for a group of edible sea snails.
The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl), which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong changeable colours.
This makes the shells attractive to us as decorative objects, jewellery, and as a source of colourful mother-of-pearl.
to ensure longevity of these earrings, always remove prior to showering, swimming or exercising.
Keep away from perfumes, lotions and cosmetics.
