These very sweet, simple but elegant silver earrings are from Cherán, Michoacan, Mexico. They are 3-dimensional or "puffy" rather than being flat. They are hollow. Made of .925 silver. This is a substantial earring but light-weight. These earrings are worn by many Purépecha women in Michoacán and they develop a gorgeous soft patina. Lovely!
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.
