Mother of Pearl Silver Dangle Bridal Earrings - Hugs and Kisses Earrings
These Sterling Silver Mother of Pearl filigree dangle earrings measure approximately 25 mm (1 inch) long. They were inspired by the pattern on the components, which reminded me of a hug and kisses sign reminiscent of an "X and O" - written in a sweetly curving script. The drop piece of each of these earrings is a 10 mm Mother of Pearl Cabochon that has been set in a beautiful sterling silver gallery wire setting. It is flanked by cast sterling silver component pieces and sterling silver ear wires that have been finished to match.
The X and O have been used together in America to represent kisses and hugs since the mid 1900's. Today we have a whole array of symbols and emoticons that we use, but the sweet simplicity and history of these two letters is still charming and delightful!
