Made with handcrafted, beautifully embellished sterling silver and faceted natural black onyx, these modern earrings with a tribal twist are a perfect accent for every day. Although big and bold, the flat design ensures that these earrings are surprisingly lightweight for their size. The unique upside-down, shield-like silver setting has a delicious high-shine sterling silver base, accented with oxidised hand-applied coil and rawa embellishments. The bright silver finish perfectly accentuates the striking black onyx at its centre, and each pair is expertly hand crafted by skilled artisans. Striking and unique, these are truly a must-have for the tribal goddess within.
Black onyx is the most prized and sought-after variety of onyx and has been associated with strength and protection since the earliest civilisations. It was frequently used as amulets on weaponry and armour to give strength and protection in battle, and many cultures utilised onyx as a material in which to carve figures of the gods and heroes, as it was thought to be a stone of strength and resolve. Onyx is grounding and stable, helping to build up physical and mental strength, persistence and endurance. It is also a useful stone for wise decision-making and amplifying intuitive gifts, especially instinctual intelligence. As a strengthening stone, it is also thought to strengthen and fortify the resolve of the wearer, and to dispel fear, grief, worry and stress as well as to banish grief and release pain from physical or emotional wounds.
