Crescent Moon Earrings
These enchanting crescent moon earrings from Mexico are made with sustainably sourced abalone shell fixed into Alpaca metal alloy on silver plated fixings
The abalone shell is a by-product of the abalone fishing industry which is strictly regulated in Mexico and only allowed at certain times of the year. Fishing is only allowed by authorised fishing co-operatives which have been voluntarily founded in order to improve sustainability of the species
Made on a fair trade basis in Mexico, these earrings were made by humans, not machines!
- Hooks: silver plated and nickel free
- Pendants: Sustainably sourced abalone shell set in *Alpaca Silver
Length: approx 2½cm
Origin: Taxco, Mexico
Credentials: Fair trade, ethical, eco, sustainable, hand crafted
*Alpaca Silver is made from copper, nickel, zinc and iron. Sometimes called German Silver, New Silver, or Nickel Silver, the metal has had a long history of use around the world. Alpaca Silver is generally quite innocuous, but anybody who is particularly sensitive to nickel should avoid prolonged contact with these earrings, for example sleeping with them against one’s face or neck
Please note that earrings can only be returned in their original sealed packaging. Your statutory rights are not affected
