These statement earrings begin with rosecut Montana agate, which suspend long rosecut carnelian drops. With so many facets, all of these stones are dramatically flashy! The Montana agates are a gorgeous gradient of red-orange transitioning to yellow and perfectly accent the vivid orange carnelian. The backsides of the earrings have been stamped with my maker's mark (BLJ) and decorated with stamped autumnal symbols: pumpkins and oak leaves. The sterling silver for these earrings has a satin finish, adding to the sparkle. All of the silver has been oxidized, a process which creates the blackened or antiqued appearance on silver; the raised points have been polished to shine, while the low points retain the oxidized color to show off the depth and details. The ear posts are 20g sterling silver. All metal used in the earrings is sterling silver.

A few notes on caring for sterling silver jewelry: like fine silver, sterling silver does tarnish over time. Exposure to chemicals can affect the appearance on silver (like hair dye, pool chlorine, some soaps, etc.). It is not recommended to wear sterling silver jewelry while bathing or swimming for this reason. If it tarnishes, sterling silver jewelry can be cleaned with cleaning cloths or solutions that are labeled as being safe for silver. Cleaning sterling silver can also remove oxidized patina applied to the piece, so use caution when cleaning if there is desired oxidized patina.
