Silver Stud Earrings, Cottonwood Tree Seed Pods with Alexandrite Gemstone Centers
Solid silver stud earrings are shaped from a cottonwood tree seed pod. In the center of each open pod rests a 1.5mm alexandrite faceted gemstone in various shades of green. Alexandrite is a variety of the mineral chrysoberyl. Alexandrite is a birthstone for June.
Stud earrings are approximately 1/2" from tip to tip.
MATERIALS: Earring seed pods are created in fine silver and are soldered to sterling silver posts. Fine silver is 99.9% silver whereas sterling is 92.5%. Fine silver will tarnish more slowly than sterling.
CARE: Your order will come with a polishing cloth to touch up your jewelry pieces when needed. I oxidize (tarnish) and polish the highlights of most of my jewelry pieces to bring out the texture of the prairie grasses and wildflowers. This oxidation will come off if polished with the cloth. When polishing pieces, polish only the raised surfaces to keep the dark oxidation in place.
