One silver and one gold plated band with smoky quartz accents. The Ripples Earrings were inspired by the 'ripple effect' - when ripples expand across the water when an object is dropped into it, or metaphorically, when one event causes a series of other events to happen. Even a tiny pebble can create enormous ripples. Similarly, a small act of kindness can multiply. The love and the help that we give one another can change the world for the better.
