Say hello to your new favorite everyday earrings in alluring and sexy Emerald! Through time, the emerald has been known as a symbol of truth and love. In ancient Greece and Rome, emerald was said to be the gemstone of the goddess Venus, purveyor of love and hope. On the other side of the world, emeralds were revered by the Incas and believed by the Egyptians to be a source of eternal life. Emeralds were considered to be a gift from Thoth, the ancient god of wisdom. The emerald is also known as a stone of intuition, associated with sight and the revelation of future events and truths.
Emeralds are the birthstone for May.

*About our gems* Each of the stones we use to create these special earrings were formed by nature over millions of years. Each one is unique and beautiful just like nature itself. They will vary one to another, just like Mother Nature intended. We don't treat our stones in any way and accept their rough and "imperfect" beauty and try to highlight their uniqueness in our plating process. We don't polish away "flaws" in the stones but rather leave them in their natural state. The pair you receive will be what nature intended that stone to be and may be lighter or darker, clear or more opaque, smooth or rough, rounded or angular. Just like people, each stone has special characteristics unique to itself and in that lies the beauty. Each pair is lovingly matched as best as possible but all are freeform and rough cut. Please expect some minor shape and color variations. Think of them as sisters, not twins.
