Each Ouroboros Earring is skillfully handcrafted one at a time in your choice of sterling silver or 14k gold. The snake eating its own tail, or Ouroboros, has symbolized many things over the ages, but generally represents ideas of recreation of self, unity, and infinity. The ouroboros has been important in religious and mythological symbolism world wide. The Ouroboros appeared in Ancient Norse mythology as Jörmungandr, one of the children of Loki, who grew so large that it could encircle the world and grasp its tail in its teeth.
The snake appears to be going through your ear. The hoop style snake earring measures approximately 20.5 mm (13/16") in diameter and 5.4 mm (just under 1/4") wide at the snake's head. The ouroboros earring weighs approximately 2 grams in sterling silver / approximately 2.5 grams in 14k gold.
Optional Eye Treatment:
The snakes eyes can be set with your choice of faceted 1.5 mm imitation birthstones for an additional $20.00. Choose from man-made garnet, amethyst, aquamarine, diamond, emerald, alexandrite, ruby, peridot, sapphire, pink tourmaline, topaz, or blue zircon.
