Details

Poised on leafy branches, the quetzal bird has been revered in Guatemala since the days of the early Mayas. "The quetzal is my country's national symbol and its colors are amazing. My dream is to see one in real life! I designed these earrings so you can see how beautiful this bird is," says Zandra Lorena Sajbin. She crafts the sterling silver earrings by hand with embossed details, and the exotic beauty of dark green jade for the wings.

These are beautifully crafted and feature a stone in a gentle pale green. They will look great with many outfits, especially floral prints. I really appreciate the kidney hook that will keep them from falling out of my ear.

I gave this to my daughter for her birthday; she loves it; loves green, loves jade. And in this time of being on camera so much, it makes her outfits look great on zoom, team, etc. What a beautiful necklace!
