Oval Shaped Black Jade Earrings
These pure jade and sterling silver earrings are made of black jade, a naturally occurring stone that shines beautifully, especially against the contrast of pure sterling silver. The jade earrings are about 3/4″ long and add a dash of elegance wherever you take them! The Guatemalan jade stones are hand-cut and polished in an oval shape and hand-set in sterling silver.
