Delicate leaves constructed of 6 1/2" of 20 gauge argentium silver cradle a 13 mm Swarovski jet crystal, with three tiny Miyuki black crystal beads at the apex. These earrings have a touch of drama, but their open work leaves them delicate and flattering. The silver has been hammered to strengthen it. **Argentium silver is 93.5% silver (sterling is only 92.5%). Much of the copper present in 92.5 silver has been replaced with germanium--making the silver not only stronger, but also more tarnish-resistant.
