Japanese Maple Leaf Silver Plate Earrings
About the product
These Japanese Maple sterling silver real leaf earrings are stunning and can be worn with our matching folia pendant collection. Each earring measures approximately 40mm x 40mm.
Our stunning leaves are skeletonised to leave their veins intact. The leaf is then preserved through electroforming, a process where the leaf is slowly encased in copper to strengthen it. The leaf is finished in a heavy layer of sterling silver. Their size, shape and patination will vary, enhancing their individual nature and creating a truly unique piece of jewellery.
Also known as an "acer," which is the scientific name for the Japanese maple tree, the Japanese have been considered this tree as a symbol of grace, personified by many Asian cultures for hundreds of years. Associated with peace and serenity of the world's elements, Japanese maple trees represent balance and practicality and are called "kito" in the Japanese language which means "calm," "rest" or "at peace".
All of our jewellery is beautifully packaged as standard in our environmentally friendly gift boxes.
