Beautiful, sought after, medium-dark colored amethysts hang from these unique square earrings.
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!
- Ear Wire Material: tarnish resistant Argentium® Sterling Silver, 1/2" square
- Length of earring from the ear wire: about 3/4" down from where they'd hang if they were hanging from a "standard" ear wire
- Stone: Amethyst, 6mm
Hypoallergenic/Nickel Free: Yes
Jewelry will be nicely presented in a gift box wrapped with a ribbon!
About Amethyst & Metaphysical Properties
Amethyst is the official birthstone of February. It forms in silica-rich liquids deposited in geodes and is found in clusters of crystal points. The stone's name is derived from the Greek word amethystos, meaning "not drunken," because people of ancient times believed it to protect the wearer from drunkenness. Amethyst is often used during meditation to provide an overall sense of spiritual balance.
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.
