Cotay Earrings

Cotay Earrings

  • $52.00

Stately and elegant, these earrings are handmade from larger fused Argentium sterling silver circles linked with smaller half-hitch Byzantine stations in either Argentium sterling silver, yellow goldfill or rose goldfill. Uniquely beautiful, these earrings flatter the wearer alone, or as a set with the matching Cotay Bracelet and Necklace.

Argentium sterling silver is a modern tarnish-resistant sterling silver alloy which modifies the traditional alloy (92.5% silver + 7.5% copper) by replacing some of the copper with the metalloid germanium. As it retains the 92.5% silver content of the traditional alloy, it is still referred to as sterling silver. (Wikipedia)

The Argentium sterling silver that I use is 100% recycled, and assays out at 93 % pure silver, which is more easily tolerated by folks with allergies. (It also contains absolutely NO nickel!!)

Prices will vary according to volatility of the precious metals markets - prices here are based on $30/0z. silver spot price.
