The stunning Real Leaf Dipped Earring Collection uses a delicate process, done by trained artisans to protect the leaves' natural shape and color, by coating them with lacquer or dipping them in copper to keep their natural veins visible. They are then dipped in precious metals such as 24K gold or silver. This step-by-step procedure usually takes at least seven days of creative processing from start to finish. Handcrafted and transformed into a timeless beauty of nature that you can treasure forever. Each is a one-of-a-kind creation.
