These 14K shiny gold plated sterling silver bee post earrings are dainty and playful. In many religions, honeybees are commonly depicted as messengers for the spirits, and are closely associated with the sun. In ancient Egypt, they're the tears of the sun-god Ra, and in yoga, where each chakra emits a different sound in meditation, the lowest chakra emits the hum of the honeybee. Fly away with these cute and ready to wear stud earrings. Our vermeil style gold plate is 40 micro inches of 98.5% pure gold plated over sterling silver with a fine layer of nickel in between and finished with a nanopolymer coating to protect the surface and repel oxidation.
