RHODIUM PLATED SILVER TREE OF LIFE STUD EARRINGS

These lovely Sterling Silver stud earrings are perfect for everyday wear. Approximately 15mm in diameter, the post is at the top of this stud rather than in the centre, so they will sit slightly lower on the lobe.

Handmade in Hatton Garden, London. A matching bracelet is also available.

The Tree of Life is a beautiful symbol in Celtic Art. The branches high in the sky and the roots deep in the ground symbolise the connection between heaven and earth.
In Celtic Art, the Tree of Life also stands for the giver of shelter, food and warmth.
At the same time, the Tree of Life represents the cycle of birth, death and rebirth.

A precious white metal from the Platinum family, Rhodium costs eight times more than pure gold (23 times more than 9ct Gold) and four times more than its relative Platinum! A very hard and scratch-resistant metal, it is sometimes used to plate silver, where it also prevents it from tarnishing. As it is whiter in appearance than White Gold and Platinum, it is often used as a coating and is sometimes referred to as Rhodium flashing. It is often electroplated on the shoulders or prongs of Yellow Gold rings to create an illusion setting for Diamonds. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible.  It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
