Reimagined Components: Vintage Dainty Sterling Silver Turquoise Sun Earrings
For thousands of years, turquoise has been prized as a symbol of wisdom, nobility, and immortality. In many Native American cultures, it represents the great spirit in the sky and is often referred to as the Sky Stone. It’s believed that if a crack forms in the stone, it has taken the injury for its wearer.
Worshiped as a God and mother to all planets, the sun is the reason our planet came to be. One cannot take its overwhelming influence for granted. The sun gives us light, warmth, seasons, energy, the aurora borealis, pink and orange sunsets, and sunrises, our summer suntan, and our direction home. We are all made of elements made in the nuclear furnace of a star, expelled into space in its death rattle known as a supernova, we are literally made of stardust. 1888 feels an interesting kindred to the sun symbol for this reason. The sun does give us life, and we are made of materials formed in a star, but we are not made of the materials formed in our star….A fascinating fact that only furthers our connectedness to the rest of our universe.
~1888’s Found Treasures~
In keeping with 1888’s company mission to educate and preserve vintage & antique historical works, we occasionally decide that some things are better left as they are!
After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
