These elegant earrings feature patterned silver bars suspending sparkling silver stars, and were inspired by the bright stars on clear winter nights. The silver has been hammered so that it catches light, resulting in incredible sparkles. The silver on the bars 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 stars themselves have a shiny finish. The ear posts are 20g sterling silver, and these earrings come with silicone backings for a good fit on the posts and for comfort. These earrings measure 1" long in total length; the star itself measures 0.5" tall and 0.4" wide. 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.
