Green Gemstone Awareness Earrings Malachite Gold Tone Ribbons Handmade
Featuring malachite gemstone beads, these green awareness earrings with gold-tone ribbons offer an earthy elegance in this meaningful style of jewelry. The malachite rounds are an eye-catching size (8mm) and have a banded coloration of dark and medium green. They are lovely complements for the shiny gold-tone awareness ribbons, and are paired with off-white turquoise rondelle spacer beads.
These unique awareness earrings are designed with the ribbon charms attached as dangles at the base of the main component. The charms can freely swing around like this, their shiny surface catching the light. The malachite rounds are nestled between elegant little scalloped gold-plated bead caps, a pair of turquoise spacer beads, and a pair of small gold-plated rondelles. There is also a triple wire-wrap at the very top of the 22K gold-plated earring pins.
The length for this lovely pair is around 2 inches, including the earring hooks. These hooks are 22K gold-plated French-style (aka fish hook) ear wires and come with clear ear stoppers for better security when the earrings are worn. To help you get a clear idea of the length and size of these awareness earrings, I have included a measurement photo in this listing, showing the earrings alongside a ruler and with a coin for a relative size comparison.
If you are interested in something a little different in awareness jewelry, these earrings may just be for you! They have been handmade with care and good wishes, and come on earring cards and in an organza bag, all ready for gifting to someone special, including yourself!
Green as a Color of Awareness:
Green signifies awareness of bipolar disorder, cerebral palsy, kidney cancer, kidney disease, glaucoma, organ transplant and organ donation, childhood depression, mental health, mitochondial disease, stem cell research, missing children, campaign for open adoption records, environmental protection, and more.
Malachite has been a popular stone for jewelry since ancient times, and was particularly valued in Greece, Rome, and Egypt. It was also used for amulets and statues, and even ground for use as eye shadow. Malachite's name may have come from the Greek "malache," which means mallow (a green plant). This mineral was also popular in medieval times as a protective talisman against the evil eye. Perhaps malachite has attracted so much attention over the ages because of its rich green coloration, which always varies and suggests nature and growth. As a power gemstone, it is thought to have transformative influences that can stimulate energy, help to balance the emotions, lessen anxiety and stress, and promote intuition and creativity. It is also believed to be an especially protective stone for travelers and children.

These earrings were even more beautiful in person than I envisioned. The seller provides excellent communication from the time you order until the product is in your hands. Shipping was very quick and the earrings were wrapped beautifully with lovely note card. When you order from Pretty Gonzo, she makes you feel like you're receiving a gift from an old friend. I can't recommend this seller enough. Her jewelry is excellent quality, and her customer care is outstanding.
