The Eliana Earrings are made-to-order and begin with 2 carefully chosen pearls that are inspected to ensure that they meet our quality standards. Next, they are carefully faceted and wrapped onto our gold earring studs. Every set of Eliana Earrings is made by hand in Austin, Texas, USA by our artisans that are paid ethical, living wages. They are inspected again for quality, then are carefully packaged, and shipped to you. What's more? In crystal healing, pearls are thought to encourage compassion for yourself and others.
