These are the "Pandora" earrings, companions of the "Pandora" necklace. Created using the ancient lost-wax casting technique, the silver shapes are solid sterling-silver, each individually hand-carved. If you look closely you'll notice the slight variations from one to the other. Strung in the center of each are genuine gemstone beads of Clear Quartz, White Moonstone, Rainbow Moonstone, Blue Topaz, and Aquamarine. The French ear-wires are sterling silver and have a textured, "non-slip" finish.
