Charleston Earrings (Dragon Iron)
The Charleston is a dance with an irresistible rhythm that instantly evokes images of the roaring 20’s. It was danced by people in all walks of life, and became a symbol of the freewheeling flapper who rejected social constraints to pursue adventure, excitement and happiness.
Like the Charleston itself, these fashionable earrings add charisma to any outfit. The lack of a metal backing on these earrings defies inlay norms. The sterling silver frame simultaneously protects the stone while letting light through, highlighting the dragon iron’s natural features.
Dragon Iron is a natural combination of Dragon’s Eye (aka Red Tiger Eye), Red Jasper and Hematite. It is a variant of Tiger Iron, or Mugglestone, which combines golden Tiger Eye, Red Jasper and Hematite. Dragon Iron is a captivating stone, with layered bands of shimmering and matte red mixed with shiny grey.
Some people believe that Dragon Iron is a very powerful stone due to the combination of 3 gemstones. It is believed to be imbued with the ability to clear the mind while keeping thoughts grounded, strengthen focus, help find courage during life’s difficult periods, and release inner creativity.
Leverback earwires are solid sterling silver.
