About This Item
Beautiful jewelry, like these Cherokee Love Earrings, has always been a part of life for the tribal people of the Southeastern United States. Copper traded from the Great Lakes region beginning about 3000 years ago and freshwater pearls from the bountiful rivers of the southeastern United States were fashioned into earrings, necklaces, and ceremonial objects. These were combined with elements of leather, gold clay, carved stone, rock crystal and incised pink mussel shell to create adornments that continue to be worn into modern times.
These copper earrings in a heart shape, with a stamped seven-pointed star, are a fun way to show your Cherokee love. The hearts are solid copper and just the right size, not too big and not too small. The seven-pointed star is the symbol of the Cherokee Nation, each arm of the star represents one of the seven clans. Every Cherokee citizen belongs to one of the clans. Copper ear wires.
