Whatever the origins of the ankh hieroglyph, its meaning is clearly as a symbol of life. These handcrafted sterling silver earrings are a powerful symbol that are worn or carried about by a person, they become an amulet. Usually carried for protection from evil and illness, amulet charms were also used in different cultures and throughout history to bring good fortune, friendship, fertility or even love.

Sterling silver will retain its luster for years and frequent wearing of your jewelry will help prevent tarnishing. We recommend polishing your sterling silver jewelry with a dry silver polishing cloth available at most grocery or hardware stores. We do not recommend polishing with silver polish as this may remove the antiquing. When you are not wearing your jewelry, storing your silver in the jewelry bag in which it came will help prevent tarnishing.
