Another Feather Ama Earrings, Black Onyx

$250

A pair of silver handcast drop earrings have inverted cups that perfectly feature a black onyx sphere inset at the bottom. Ama, meaning "woman of the sea" in Japanese refers to female free divers in Japan who traditionally dove for pearls. These black onyx spheres echo the classic pearl form.

 

With regular wear, silver will retains its brightness. Avoid excessive contact with water or other body products.  If kept out on a dresser and worn infrequently, the finish can tarnish or "gray" (depending on the climate). To remedy, a simple silver polish and buffing cloth can restore the finish. When unworn, store in a protective jewelry box or airtight container.
