Oxidation. It's a beautiful thing. We didn't need that stinkin' electron anyhow. And now we have a new substance. That's what's happened with the brass charms on these earrings. They've been intentionally oxidized. With this form of corrosion, the brass gains a thin film of copper oxide along the exposed surfaces. It gives them a dark, matte finish that's really subtle. And, of course, you couldn't have bright sterling silver ear wires against that, so the jeweler chose to tarnish them. The result is a science-experiment you can safely hang from your ear.
The charms on these Star Wars Logo Earrings each measure approximately 1/2" in diameter. From the top of the wire to the bottom of the charm measures 1". Comes in a silk bag.
Note that because this is science, some subtle imperfections may appear in the ear wires. Because one way to get rid of tarnish is to abrade it and basically that's what the charms are doing to the ear wires as they swing back and forth, the ear wires will develop shiny spots. Just leave them out to reoxidize them back to their tarnished state.
For our customers with nickel allergies: the icons are oxidized white bronze, which is a mixture of copper, tin, and zinc. The ear wires are tarnished sterling silver. Copper is the main alloy (which aids in the tarnishing), but it is possible that there are small amounts of nickel present in the mix.
