Who is this mysterious woman partially masked in a delicate swath of sterling silver? Her gaze is serene and all-seeing, though she is a paradox in that we cannot see all of her. She sees into the viewer while leaving some hidden part of herself obscured. A true enigma, these citrine drop earrings from our silver goddess jewelry collection are both fascinating and bewitching.

Our lady wears a faceted citrine drop accent like a golden crown on her head. Citrine is known as the stone of imagination, success, good fortune, and personal power. A semi-precious gemstone, citrine is much celebrated for its warm yellow to honey gold color. It is especially radiant when set into these carved ivory earrings for its ability to warm the ancient fossilized ivory's natural earth tones.

Her enigmatic face is carved from fossilized walrus ivory, a prized material that is 500 to 3,000 years old. Fossilized walrus ivory accretes a cream to caramel or cocoa tone depending on the soil's mineral content where it is buried. It is an important cultural and indigenous economic resource for the Native peoples who gather it after erosion brings it back to light. Natural variations in color are part of what makes fossilized walrus ivory such a sought after organic material for fine jewelry pieces and artisan crafts.
