Beautiful, graceful dogwood blossom earrings, hand wrought in sterling silver. Dogwood is the state flower of Virginia, and a beloved symbol of grace throughout the South. These silver dogwood blossom earrings have screw back clasps so they can be enjoyed by anyone, whether they have pierced ears or not.
The dogwood is an ancient tree that has roots all around the world. There is dogwood lore among the Indigenous American tribes, and legend has it that a dogwood tree provided the wood for the cross when Jesus was crucified. The blossom has come to symbolize rebirth, fresh starts and harmony.
Each dogwood blossom measures 20 mm ( .75 inches) from top to bottom. The back of each botanical earring is marked sterling to indicate .925 silver purity and together the pair weighs 5 grams. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our fine jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
