These earrings feature hand-cut and textured fangs, each dripping with a blood-red faceted garnet. The garnets are free-swinging pieces, and they sparkle with every movement! 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, and these earrings come with silicone backings for a good fit on the posts and for comfort. These earrings measure 0.4" tall and 0.6" wide. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver.
This item is already made, and will be shipped 3-5 business days after the payment is processed. Shipping options will be available to choose upon check-out.
A few notes on caring for oxidized sterling silver: oxidized patina on sterling silver isn't particularly durable to long-term exposure to water (like bathing or swimming) or a lot of scrubbing, as friction is the way to polish silver to shine. Constant exposure to tasks such as hand washing, bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc., will slowly wear away the oxidized patina leaving a shiny silver finish.
