Silver pendant and earrings set "The Three Windows"

$78.00
Variants: 
Handmade

A pendant and a pair of earrings that together symbolize the Three Windows found in the Machu Picchu archaeological site. The Three Windows, built by the Inka civilization, were thought of as windows to and representations of their three divisions of the cosmos: the upper (Hanan Pacha), the middle (Kay Pacha) and the lower (Uku Pacha) worlds. Each window is decorated with patterns that have their origin in the Inka calendar.

Even though the complete set represents Machu Picchu's Three Windows, the pendant and the earrings can be purchased separately if desired. The chain is included with the pendant.

 

Materials

Both the pendant and the earring are handcrafted using quality 950 silver (95% pure silver) and natural pigments. The indigo, blue and turquoise colors are derived from semi-precious stones, while the white, white/yellow and orange colors are derived from sea shells.

 

Size

The pendant is 3.4 cm (1.34 in) long. The base of the window is 2.2 cm (0.87 in) wide; the top is 1.6 cm (0.63 in) wide. The chain is 49 cm (19.29 in) in total length, but it can be adapted to match your requirements.

The earrings are 2.1 cm (0.83 in) long each. The base of each window is 1.4 cm (0.55 in) wide; the top is 0.8 cm (0.31 in) wide.

We can always make a custom make so that you get just the right size for you, for no additional cost!

    This bracelet is probably my favorite piece of jewelry.  The workmanship is very fine, and the rainbow of colors in the stones and shells are vibrant and clear.  The clasp is so beautiful that I wear it on top of my wrist to show it off.

  • Gorgeous earings!!!!

    by Maria B.

    These earrings are gorgeous, the pictures don't do them justice enough! The colors from stones and sea shells are beautiful and bright and the design is harmonious and elegant. The silver is brighter than other jewelry I have, probably due to higher concentration in pure silver (950 silver).

    Beautiful jewelry and it was difficult to make a decision what to buy. This Pachamama (Mother Earth) set (ring and earrings) was one of my favorites. High quality silver in a charming 5 color combination with sea shells and precious stones.

What is 950 silver?

Pure silver is very soft by its nature and it cannot be easily used to craft jewelry. An alloy that consists of 92.5% of silver and 7.5% of other metals (usually copper) is most commonly used for making jewelry - this is called "sterling silver". Our artisans use "950 silver" which is an alloy consisting of 95% silver and 5% of copper or other metals and which is one of the highest silver standards used for crafting jewelry that is currently in use.
