Gorgeous, handmade silver Jerez arracada earrings from central Mexico. These are relatively light weight and the designs are from the Zacatecas area of Mexico. The arracada shape is a traditional Mexican earring crescent shape. The design is a typical floral and filagree center with scalloped edges. These are handmade with lots of love! Jerez arracadas vary a tiny bit in the amount of filagree, the use of flowers or birds etc. You can see there is a very slight amount of variation between the Jerez arracadas--choose the one you want in the drop down menu.
Arracada earrings do not sit perpendicular to the head. They sit at a slight angle and sometimes you can see the back of the earring as you face a mirror. They are supposed to be that way!
