A set of silver earrings decorated with a spiral that for the indigenous people of the Andes represent the "Pachamama" or "Mother Earth". They have a French hook at the top. It is the perfect companion to the corresponding ring "Mother Earth - 5 Colors".

 

Materials

These earrings are handcrafted using quality 950 silver (95% pure silver) and natural pigments. The blue and green colors are derived from stones, while the purple, white, yellow and red are derived from sea shells.

 

Dimensions

The diameter of the circle in each ring is 1.95cm.

950 silver contains a very high percentage of pure silver which is malleable in nature and it should to be handled with care to avoid scratches. It can be washed with cold or hot water, detergent and a soft fabric such as cotton.

What is 950 silver?

Pure silver is very soft by its nature and it cannot be easily used to craft jewelry. An alloy that consists of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals (usually copper) is most commonly used for making jewelry - this is called "sterling silver". Our artisans use "950 silver" which is an alloy consisting of 95% silver and 5% of copper or other metals and which is one of the highest silver standards used for crafting jewelry that is currently in use.
