Handmade by Yanina Siani, these smooth and subtle Chalcedony drops are wire wrapped and hang from sterling silver hammered hoops.
Chalcedony is one of the precious stones traded along ancient Asian trade routes. Craftsmen of the time would carve rings, beads, and cabochons. Once discovered that wax would not stick to it, it became highly sought after as the perfect wax seal. In metaphysical lore, it is thought to enhance responsiveness and generosity.
These earrings hang 2 1/4 inches from the ear including earwire. They measure 1 1/4 inches across. They are very lightweight.
Keep in mind the head form in the picture is smaller than a human head, making the earrings look a bit larger than they really are.
