The Gingko tree is one of the oldest living trees on the planet, dating back some 250 million years (pre dinosaurs). Used in eastern medicine for centuries. The tree boast the brightest green leaves then the leaves burst into the most magnificent shade of saffron yellow in the fall blanketing the ground in a carpet of yellow. Gingko leave represents hope and peace and the symbol of happiness and ever - expanding good fortune. It is said the the fan shaped leaves are thought to demonstrate the ever widening future spreading before us. Solid sterling silver, these earring are priced according to silver market at time of my sourcing and may fluctuate from time to time.
The wire wrapping on my designs is never pre-fabricated or purchased in bulk. I meticulously and thoughtfully wrap each design.
