Handmade from high quality brass, these earrings are shaped into designs that are inspired by nature and Hindi culture. The lotus, spiral, flower of life and mandala symbols that are integrated to create these earrings are found throughout Hindi art and spiritual practice. The White Mother of Pearl shell from New Zealand is a beautiful reflective pearly white color. Due to the natural characteristics of the shell used to carve these earrings, some variations in color may occur. The 18ga sterling silver posts fit standard sized pierced ears.
