Our ready-to-wear pink vermeil honeybee ear posts are cast in high-relief sterling silver, then finished in shiny 18Kt rose gold plate.
Asian and Mediterranean cultures have long considered bees to be sacred insects. Bees created nutritious and medicinal honey, were icons of cooperation and industry, and were mythological messengers between everyday life and the otherworld.
Famed as emblems of heraldry, kingship, religious devotion, unswerving effort, immortality, and resurrection, honeybees and their larger cousins bumblebees are popular symbols to this day.
Posts come with 4.4x4.5mm 18Kt rose gold plated silver clutch backs and 9x.70mm (21 gauge) posts with grooved tips for extra security.
