Jade dangle earrings, 'Dark Beacon' (Guatemala)

To the ancient Maya, the jade found in Central America was a sacred stone. It symbolized health and good fortune, and was used in healing rituals. Estuardo Jimenez sets hemispheres of dark green jade in polished teardrops to craft these elegant earrings. "I created this design to make you look beautiful and also to share a bit of Maya history with you," the Guatemalan artisan confides. .925 Sterling silver
