Tiny lustrous moon phases studs. 🌒🌓🌕🌗🌘
Each set includes 1 full moon, 2 half moons, and 2 crescent phases for a total of 5 earrings. The surfaces have been hammered and detailed to resemble lunar craters. The silver has been lightly 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. There are tiny touches of fused 24kt gold sprinkled around the surface of each moon, which sparkle brilliantly in the light. 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 approximately 0.25" tall and 0.25" wide. All metal used in this piece is sterling silver, with the exception of the 24kt gold accents.
You will not be receiving this exact pair of earrings, but rather a pair made in the same design. As with any handmade product, these earrings will not be completely identical.
This item is made-to-order. It will be shipped upon completion of the piece. Please check my shop announcements and time frames listed under shipping options for estimated arrival times. Shipping options will be available to choose upon check-out.
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.
