The properties of the gemstone utilized in our Tiger’s Eye Tear Drop Dangles encourage you to live boldly, fiercely, and bravely in all aspects of your life. Colored with golden bands, flecks of sand, and smudges of inky black and brown – there’s no disputing the wild force and energy that can be found in this stone.
Not only did early Chinese and Egyptians believe in the power of Tiger’s Eye, but the stone also played a central role in Greek and Roman mythology. While the Greeks harnessed the power of Tiger’s Eye in jewelry to strengthen their senses for focus and protection, the Romans wore amulets made from Tiger’s Eye when going into battles. Seen as an embodiment of the tiger’s character traits of bravery, strategic thinking and patience, Romans wore amulets of Tiger’s Eye to fight off fear, for protection, and to provide enough strength to win any battle.
Antique brass seed beads are woven around the lustrous gemstones to form the teardrop shape. Each earring is topped with a beautiful translucent amber colored bead. Antique brass ear wires finish the rich, warm look.
Wear this pair to embrace your inner-strength and go boldly, fiercely, and bravely into life!
