Behind our neighbor's 1896 stone Victorian home, complete with a turret and beautiful stained glass windows, is a huge old ginkgo tree. As ginkgo trees are very slow growing, I believe that this tree must be almost the same age as the house! The tree's leaves all turns a magnificent yellow in autumn, and then in one day, all the leaves rain down and form a golden blanket around its massive trunk. It is from this tree's leaves that I made a mold to make these earrings. These leaves have been recreated in .999 fine silver. They hang from .925 sterling silver ear wires and have been polished to bring out the depth and detail. These earrings measure just over 1-1/8" wide and about 1-1/2" tall, including ear wires. Each is hand made, so allow for slight variations. Also, if you would prefer a shorter or longer ear wire, I'd be happy to custom make a pair for you. The last photo shows a comparison of all sizes available.
