Cast and oxidized sterling silver calyx of arnica flower drop earrings with 7mm popping pink laboratory grown sapphires and 18karat gold ear wires.

1 1/2" from top to bottom.

A few examples of arnica sepals are pictured. When arnica grows in the shade, or a flower on the plant gets a late start,  the petals of the emerging flowers do not fully emerge. Instead, growth occurs in the sepals, which, become increasingly elaborate, and come to resemble flowers themselves. You can see the tiny emerging petals in the earring center, pushed over the stones. More on arnica sepals with yellow arnica flower image, listed on this page.

Simple. Colorful. Pink.

Flowers all year.
