About This Item

Beautiful jewelry, like these Trail of Tears earrings, has always been a part of life for the Cherokee people. Copper was traded from the Great Lakes regions beginning about 3000 years ago and fashioned into earrings, necklaces, and ceremonial objects. Ornate adornments made of clay, copper, gold, carved stone, rock crystal, incised pink mussel shell and freshwater pearls have been worn into modern times by both men and women.

Shaped like crystal teardrops, these earrings commemorate the Cherokee Trail of Tears, a forced march in 1838 in which one-fourth of the Cherokee people died walking from Georgia, North Carolina, and Alabama to Oklahoma. Copper teardrop shaped frames are filled with hand-strung rock crystal stones.

  • Dimensions:  1 1/4 inches long x 3/4 inches wide.
  • Copper ear wires.
  • Material: Solid Copper
