A rare beauty, each uniquely marbled Rhodochrosite stone is a dance of various shades of pink - from very light to deep raspberry. Representing passion, these earrings come to life when light bounces off each stone, reflecting its uniquely deep pattern. Rhodochrosite is Colorado’s state mineral.
These unique square earrings are modern in design. I hand formed the Argentium® Sterling Silver wire into squares, then hammered them flat with a subtle texture. The square earrings hang from the point of the square, giving you a different look from the front and side. The clean and modern lines of these earrings will dress up anything.
Hammered Square Earrings are another piece from my Interchangeable Jewelry Collection. You can mix it up by collecting more Dangles to easily hang from these earrings!

About Rhodochrosite & Metaphysical Properties
The vivid color rage of Rhodochrosite has made it famous and one of the most sought after stones for jewelry. Rhodochrosite can appear in colors from light pink, to deep raspberry, to bright red. Its distinguishing trait is the stone's thick banding pattern of its colors plus bands of white and tan, which gives the stone its dimensional quality.
Rhodochrosite is one of the rarest stones in the world. It can only be found in a few locations across the globe, including the United States where it's recognized as Colorado's state mineral for its rich deposits there.
Note, Rhodochrosite is a softer stone and should be cared for with a clean polishing cloth or plain soapy water. Do not put it in ultrasonic cleaners or use any harsh cleaning chemicals.
Rhodochrosite is known for passion, courage and fortitude.
About Argentium® Sterling Silver
Argentium® – The Finest Silver - is a purer version of Sterling Silver that is also highly tarnish resistant. Standard "Sterling Silver" is an alloy composed of 92.5% silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. Thus, you see "925 Sterling Silver".
Argentium® is made with 93.5% silver and 6.5% other metals, including germanium and copper, which gives Argentium® additional beneficial properties for jewelry makers. For my jewelry, the biggest benefit of using Argentium® instead of regular Sterling Silver is that it is much more tarnish resistant.
In addition, Argentium® is responsibly manufactured, ethically sourced, and certified to be made with 100% recycled silver.
