Rakia, named after my Great-Great-Grandmother is a drop earring made of vivid blue sponge Quartz, lilac Malaysian Jade and a lavender Cubic Zirconia Teardrop.
The long slim design of this earring reminds me of the slim beautiful necks of the Fulani where my great-great-grandmother was from.
The earrings catch the light as they dangle at your neck, drawing attention to your ears and face and accentuating the curve of your neck.
If you're after eye-catching and unique, the Rakia is just up your alley.
Sterling Silver Jewellery Care
Sterling silver is a mix of pure silver and other alloys, that make the metal stronger for use in jewellery making. These alloys react with chemicals found in the air and produce tarnish (a darkening of the high shine metal).
Have no fear, your jewellery isn't damaged, this tarnish can also be caused by high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants.
You should protect your sterling earrings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling jewellery in a cool, dry place.
Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
