Shaped like shields, these sterling silver dangle earrings from Bali command attention with their elaborate engraved design. Using traditional Balinese silverwork techniques, artisan Komang Wijayana forms the earrings by hand and centers them with pear-shaped amethyst stones. Amethyst is considered to be a stone of protection and represents February´s birthstone.
