This is a large earring and heavier earring. It is the traditional arracada or crescent shape, so common on the earlobes of Mexican women, with cutouts through the silver. They are 92.5% silver or sterling silver. Handmade for you in the hills of Michoacán by one of the most interesting silversmiths in Mexico. This is a special and unique earring, not for the faint of heart.
Arracada earrings naturally sit slightly angled in the earlobe. It's not the hole in your ear! They are supposed to be slightly angled and not exactly perpendicular to your head. For that reason, you may be able to see the back side of the earring when you are looking in the mirror.
