Rich yet classic colours infuse these earrings with a lot of personality and a certain kind of old-timey charm. The neutral brown of the enamel would look wonderful with any red or orange elements incorporated in your outfit. The movement of the sterling silver raindrops attract attention to these unique pieces of jewellery every time your head moves.

The surface effect on this piece was created with a technique called enamelling. Enamel is a powdered glass which fuses to metal when fired at temperatures around 1500°F. When heated, the powder flows and hardens, becoming a smooth and vitreous surface. Enamel is very durable. However, if handled roughly or exposed to chemical cleaners it may crack or become dull. Therefore, please clean this piece with only a polishing cloth and handle with care.
