"KINTSUGI" is an ode to an old Japanese art of repairing broken crockery with gold. The Kintsugi small earrings (pierce only) are each approximately 12mm in diameter. Material: Silver/Gold Mix (Britannia Silver 958 base with 23K Gold Vermeil), Matt finish As our pieces are handmade, please understand that slight variations to the texture may occur. In the spirit of Kintsugi, the gold lines vary from piece to piece. This piece is crafted in Britannia Silver 958, a high purity silver which retains its bright color (unlike sterling silver which tarnishes easily). We also provide a small zip lock bag in which we recommend to store your piece/s to keep them away from the air. This will help to keep them bright for a long time. We usually have this piece in stock, however as we make each piece one-by-one, occasionally we are out of stock. If you would like to know the stock status, please contact me. Alternatively, if an order is placed and we are out of stock, we will contact you. Our Britannia Silver 958 handmade production process takes approximately one week.
