Measures 5.5 cm. Designed with a selection of topaz glass and polished Tiger’s Eye beads these simple earrings have been wrapped by hand using silver plated copper wire.
Tiger’s eye is one of the birthstones listed for the Planetary stone of Gemini and is suggested as an anniversary gift for the ninth wedding anniversary. Tiger’s eye has long been regarded as a protection stone, as well as a stone of courage and motivation. It is said to assist you to recognise not only your needs, but the needs of other, and will help with decision making. It carries a powerful, strong vibration that helps you to stay grounded even during times of stress or trouble. It is believed to bring a lightness of spirit and an optimistic outlook.
Besides its natural beauty and ability to oxidise and transform, 100% of copper can be recycled without any loss of its original mined quality. Over 80% of the copper mined since it was discovered thousands of years ago is still in use today.
Those who happen to be deficient in copper may benefit from wearing it in jewellery form, such as necklaces, rings and bracelets. It is a good way of taking in the small amount of the mineral needed, without overwhelming the body. The healing properties of copper has been reported by some to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and circulation problems.
In the UK, copper is traditionally associated with the ninth year of marriage (7th in the USA), its beauty and malleability symbolising the way a married couple can bend to accommodate each other after nine long years.
