The Mermaid Queen Earrings are built from Sterling Silver and Prehnite. When the light hits these stones, they light up from the inside, catching the sun and glowing like some kind of underwater treasure. The silver has been oxidized and finished to a satiny patina, leaving some of the darkness behind, and highlighting the details. Finished off with handmade ear wires, they measure 2.5" long and just under 1.75" wide. These earrings are surprisingly comfortable for their size.
