Little "onion" drops (that's really what this shape is called!) of microfaceted, highly polished pyrite are topped with sterling silver caps and wired to handmade sterling silver ear wires in these delightfully sparkly little earrings. 
Pyrite, once known jokingly as "fool's gold," is becoming a popular gemstone in its own right due to its edgy dark metallic color. It's not quite like any other metal color. Since I can't match it, I've used contrasting .935 Argentium sterling silver for the wire and ear wires for a mixed-metal look. Argentium is a bit harder and more tarnish resistant than regular .925 sterling, and contains even more actual silver. It's also hypoallergenic for most wearers with metal sensitivities. The bead caps are .925 sterling silver. 
ABOUT THE PHOTOS:  The stones are very polished. Please disregard the reflections you see in them - the stones don't have dark or light blotches! 
- Total length including ear wires:  About 1.25 inches (33mm) 
- Stone width:  2/5 inch (10mm)
Good vibes:  Pyrite, a form of iron, is associated with fire and earth, energy and strength. Its name comes from the Greek word for fire.

Care: Please handle your handmade jewelry gently. Avoid exposing gemstones to chemicals, such as chlorine, saltwater, soap, shampoo, etc. To clean the stones, just wipe gently with a damp cloth or tissue. A chemically treated jewelry polishing cloth or wipe can be used on the silver only. You can use a silver cleaning liquid like Hagerty Silversmiths' Polish, but please avoid  getting any cleaning chemicals on the stones.

♡ Gemstones may have slight flaws and variations. They were placed there by the Creator. This tells you they are natural, not lab-created. Every natural stone is unique and took millions of years to make! 
♡ I do my best to show my jewelry accurately, but please note: colors change remarkably with different light conditions and display settings.
