The Gersemi collection is inspired by Norse Mythology. Goddess Freyja, renowned for her loveliness and beauty is said to have had two daughters with her husband Odr. These daughters were extremely beautiful and almost identical in appearance. Freyja well known for her love of jewellery and all that glisters, named her two daughters Gersemi and Hnoss. Both are words for, 'treasure' in Old Norse.
These beautiful Lavender Amethyst drop earrings are handcrafted from Argentium Silver,(produced from recycled silver). Fine silver surrounds the stones.

Keeping Your Jewellery In Tip Top Condition
Argentium Silver is brighter and shinier than Sterling Silver and it is tarnish resistant. Argentium Silver is more durable and stronger than traditional Sterling silver which makes it more resistant to damage. Argentium jewellery is low maintenance but it will still need the occasional clean.
It is easy to keep your Argentium silver jewellery in excellent sparkling condition.
Clean Argentium silver with a silver polishing cloth to remove any tarnish. Do be careful not to over polish your silver items and do not be too heavy handed with your jewellery.
Silver jewellery is best kept in an airtight box and/or jewellery pouch when not worn. This will prevent your jewellery from being exposed to the air for prolonged periods and the risk of tarnishing. It will also help prevent scratch marks appearing.
Try and limit your jewellery from exposure to chemical substances such as lotions and perfumes.
Swimming or bathing in the sea or swimming pool whilst wearing your silver jewellery is not recommended. Sterling silver can change colour when exposed to salt water and chlorinated pools, and the salt water and chlorine will damage Sterling silver far more than any other metal!
Anti -Tarnish paper tabs or strips are perfect to put with your silver when storing your jewellery away. Silica gel sachets can be put with your jewellery too. Both are great at absorbing any moisture in the air. Both Anti- Tarnish papers and Silica Gel strips can be widely purchased online.
Gemstone care- Always avoid temperature extremes. Wipe clean gently with a soft, damp, lint free cloth and dry.
