Details

Delicately descending on the lance-like leaf of an anthurium, a sterling silver ladybug symbolizes good luck. "I designed this pendant as a reminder of the care and love that we must have toward our natural environment," confides Pablo Roquel. He carves the jade pendant by hand in the shape of a leaf and details it with sterling silver. For the ancient Maya, jade was a sacred gem reserved for their deities and royalty.

"Lovely dangle earrings!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

While these earrings are not quite as large (showy) as I anticipated, I still love how they look on. The design is absolutely beautiful! They are small but would make a stunning gift for a young lady or anyone liking this style earring. You won t be disappointed.
