in: Earrings



So feminine! The Nerissa earrings are constructed from finely woven copper wire and accented with green African jade chips to create a festive, floral look. These earrings measure 5 cm (about 2 inches) long, and 2 cm (about 3/4 of an inch) across. The ear wires are solid copper.


In the folklore surrounding gemstones and metals, African jade (or green grossular garnet) is associated with confidence, abundance, and motivation. It's used to represent hopefulness and vision. Copper is thought to improve circulation and relieve pain. It's associated with the sun and with luck, and is believed to enhance the properties of gemstones.
