Sterling and Green Niobium Vine Earrings
ONE-OF-A-KIND: These earrings have a triangular, textured sterling silver background with a small greenish anodized niobium* vine attached. They measure 1-3/4” from the top of the sterling silver ear wires. They are a match to the Cuff (NB955) and Pendant (NP669).
* Niobium (Nb) is a reactive metal similar to titanium. An electrical current passed through it will change the surface color (anodized). The amount of voltage applied will determine the color. It is hypoallergenic because it is resistant to acids and alkalines. To clean, if it loses it’s shine, use any window cleaner. It costs about the same as sterling silver and is a bit lighter in weight. While the anodized color should not fade, it is a surface color and can scratch but not readily.
