These earrings feature Garnet beads that have been spiral wrapped or wire wrapped with Argentium Sterling Silver wire. The beads hang from a central Argentium Silver Chain. Overall length is just over 1-1/4 inches from the top of the handmade Sterling earwires. Argentium Sterling Silver is Anti-tarnish, so these earrings will continue to look bright and shiny with no polishing necessary. Thanks for looking!
