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 light green jade for the wings.

"Elegant and eye catching"

Beautiful, well made ring with lovely thoughts behind its design. I wear it every day. The jade is very pretty - I m thinking of purchasing the stud earrings in 3 colors to match.

"Beautiful earrings"

This is the third pair of earrings I have purchased from this seller (one was a gift). All have been beautifully made with lovely stones. The earrings have a nice weight. They are neither heavy nor flimsy--just right.
