Sterling silver and real Hematite.
Post earrings measure approximately 1/2" long and 3/8" at widest point.
This pair of earrings are a Navajo classic! This piece of Native American jewelry is Navajo hand crafted by artist Ester White, out of genuine sterling silver and real Hematite stones. This pair of earrings has a total of TWO stones (ONE in each earring) that are gently set in hand cut shadow box bezel settings, while placed in marvelous bear paw designs. Hand cut bear paw patterns add style and complete the earrings beautifully. In Native American beliefs, the bear paw is usually considered a way to call for the power of the animal spirit, or as an indication of the presence of the spirit. It is a symbol that represents inner strength.
Hematite is believed to be a powerful meditation stone. It is supposed to open you up to be more inventive and help you find your way.
