925-Sterling Silver EARRINGS
Beautifully crafted in 925-sterling silver and expertly sandblasted.
SILVER deals with the moon and as such it is an attribute of feminine energy.
Silver is symbolic of such attributes as awareness, clarity, and vision because of its bright/clear appearance.
Silver is a symbol for strength because this metal withstands abuse, weathering, and even heat. Nevertheless, it can still be molded into desired forms.
SILVER jewelry has long been prized for its brilliant luster and its easy workability. Pure silver, also known as 999 fineness, is highly tarnish resistant, but too soft for use in jewelry. Silversmiths often alloy it with other metals like copper, to harden it. Sterling silver, for example, is 92.5 % silver and 7.5 % copper. Sterling silver is a silver jewelry standard in many countries and has been since the 14th century.
It is an international superstar in the fashion world – SILVER is a white, elemental metal believed to have been mined as early as 4000 B.C. It has been used for jewelry, tableware, coins, and dentistry. Silver is also valued, both in ancient and modern times, for its antimicrobial properties. Silver coins were sometimes placed in water barrels to prevent fouling, and surgical instruments can have a silver coating.
Traditionally, SILVER is associated with water, the moon, and moon goddesses, such as Selene.
