These gold-rush-era nugget moons hang from a pair of hand-fabricated 14k earwires, each decorated with a larger gold nugget. We love the high color and unique, organic textures of natural gold nuggets— they are especially wonderful, here, paired with earthy cattle horn. These earrings are backed with solid 14k gold sheet, and are marked with the phrase "native gold nuggets." 

The moon is an enduring symbol of feminine power, change, and fertility— it is both a soothing, constant presence, and a reminder that cycles and seasons are an unavoidable part of our existence. Who doesn't love the moon?!
